You would need a meter and the shop manual for the procedure.
The sensor either sends a DC reference voltage back to the ECM or it generates its own AC voltage from the sensor ring.

Check engine and abs on. replaced transmission speed output sensor. abs still on

Did you check the ABS codes to see which ABS wheel speed sensor is faulty? There is one at each wheel that could be faulty.
Also check the ABS ring teeth as rust or bigger gap between teeth can cause fault.

The ABS light comes on when a problem is detected with an ABS wheel sensor or the ABS module. The dealer can scan the ABS module and tell you what the problem is.

Abs light never goes out 2001 gmc jimmy

If it never goes out than it suggests there is a failure in the abs system during it's sef check. Every time you start the vehicle the abs does a quick self check. If nothing wrong is detected the abs light will goe out shortly after starting. If a fault is detected the abs light will stay on. Some common failures that cause this are a bad abs sensor and broken abs sensor harness wires. You can visually instect the harnesses to see if any are broke. You can use a DVOM to check the sensors. The quickest way to identify the problem is have the abs module scanned for codes. This will identify the problem and give you a better idea of what direction to head into.

Anti-lock Brake light is on

The ABS sensors needs to be cleaned and checked.The ABS sensors are dirty. If enough dirt builds up on the sensors it will trip the lights.But if sensors are clean then its the problem of faulty sensor. If one of the sensors or it wiring is damaged, the ABS and TRAC OFF lights will glow to alert you that the systems will not work as designed. Check the ABS sensors.Loosen the lug nuts on the tire that has the ABS sensors behind them. Jack the car up and place jack stands under the car.--------------Thanks.Helpmech.

Abs speed control flashing

Likely an ABS Wheel Speed Sensor is not sending the proper signal to the ABS module.
Could be a dirty sensor, ring, or a bad wiring to the sensor from the ABS control module.

Check for a dirty sensor, first.

My abs light stays on 1995 chevy G20 van and have to replace front brakes every 6 months but rear brakes show no wear and are atleast 3 yrs old. On slick pavement right front brake sometimes locks when...

I'd be checking the sensor (ABS) at that wheel, (right front) and adjusting rear brakes to proper clearance, as well as inspect them for proper operation with wheels off.

Diagram of abs sensor

Sorry i don't have one but i can tell you that there are sensors in all the wheels and they work there way to the ABS modulator. If you are having ABS problem such as the light is on, you still have brakes but no abs. Check the lead wire to the abs sensor at the wheel where the sensor Reade's the speed ring at the hub. Most of the time the sensor get's dirty and needs just a good cleaning with a spray of Brake parts cleaner and if that does not work the sensor it self may need to be re gaped to the speed ring and of course check the wires for corrosion or any kind of damages. The last problem may be a bad ABS Modulator and will need to be replaced and that needs to be checked by a scanner. Good luck and hope this helps, if you have any questions. be glad to answer any.

ABS light stays on

have you had abs system checked with a scan tool?if you cannot communicate with abs module with a scanner,there is main power feed circuit that corrodes under fuse block underhood..also have seen corroded wires near abs module over top of transmission..if you have may have a speed sensor fault..if a front sensor,check wiring behind splash shields in fenderwells,if rear sensor fault,most likely sensor is defective..also check for water intrusion into rear wheel bearings by removing sensor from hub unit
