There was a TSB on GMT400's over this exact same thing.

Since this recall: 'NHTSA Campaign ID number : 05V379000' only covers GMT800/900's, the DIY fix:

Is to remove the ABS sensor and take off the rust from behind the sensor and the mounting surface on the hub.

Then use anti-seize that has metal fillers (copper or aluminum).

Dumb, as that completes the circuit. Better would have been for them to have a ground wire & connector contact
on the plug, but that would have cost a few bucks more....
