2002 Grand Am GT 3.4L Ram Air Service Vehicle soon/ABS/Trac Control and Parking brake warning lights come on?

When I start the car the ABS/Service Vehicle Soon and Traction Off lights come on and then when I drive and turn a few times my Emergency Brake Light comes on. I have the following codes in which can be cleared. C1221, C1226 and C1233. The other code in which comes on and cannot be cleared is C1232 LF wheel Sensor Circuit Open. I believe there is a ground problem however is there a way of narrowing down the search.

    You will have to repair the wheel sensor problem. It probably a broken wire or the sensor is unlugged.Its already narrowed down to the left front wheel sensor.

    If you E-brake light is on your traction control will be disabled.

    Your ebrake needs to be adjusted. It may be a cable preventing the Ebrake pedal or handle from returning to full off. Try lifting the pedal or pushing the lever down to see if light goes off.

    The service engine soon is caused by a sensor . The codes should identify which component.

    You need to replace the left front hub assembly, the sensor is built into it, and they fail frequently. This should fix all of your problems at once.

    Personally I'd check if there is a problem with the ABS first.
