The only foolproof way is to remove the bearing and look see. If while driving down the road you hear the bearing, and if you swerve left and right and the noise disappears for a second it is probably bad.

The traction off light and abs light goes off randomly in a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE how can it be fixed?

this has to do with the sensor in the wheel bearing, unfortunatly the sensor and wheel bearing are one unit. first you have to find out which wheel bearing it is and then replace it, these can be expensive. I've had to replace both of mine within months of each other. take it to get a diagnostic done they can tell you which bearing it is.hope this helps
