The front left and right ABS wheel speed sensors need to be replaced together. If you just replace the drivers side or passenger side, the light will come back on. If you are experencing ABS shutter, or when you apply the brakes, the ABS unit will activate the affected wheel, causing a horrible noise and feeling in the brake pedal/ steering wheel, one or both of the sensors are transmitting confusing data back to the pcm, causing a false " wheel lock signal" activating your ABS module.
These sensors are fairly easy to replace for someone that has done car repairs. I did both of mine on a Saturday morning, took 3 Hrs. I would only replace them with genuine Chrysler parts.

This code is for a failed ABS or Traction control signal to the power train control module. Did the ABS light come on? If so, you will need a diagnostic scan to isolate the cause of the code. It could be an ABS sensor... wiring... ABS relay/module etc
Whenever the ABS warning light comes on in the instrument cluster and it stays
on it means the systems electronic control module (computer) has detected a
problem in one or more of the inputs to the module; an ABS fault code is
present as long as the ABS light is on. So what must be done to correct this?
You must have the ABS electronic control module scanned with a special tool to
read the fault code, and then a trained technician will diagnose and repair the
defective part or wiring. Most times this is a wheel speed sensor (one for each
wheel) that gives an erratic signal. While the light is on all you have is
regular non-ABS brakes.
This is the short story.The transmission sends a signal to the ECM that sends a signal to the BCM (This is what locks the doors) The ECM also sends that signal to the ABS. When the ABS doesn't sense a signal from the wheel sensors, the ABS light comes on. Have the codes checked. Let me know. Randy
You will be best off bringing the car in for service. If the anti-lock signal comes on, it means that your ABS system has a fault and you do not have anti-lock brakes functioning. When the light comes on the car runs on your brakes alone, no anti-lock.
To check the codes and the ABS system, the car should really be serviced.
Means your anti locking brake system is disable, when the ABS light is on means the ASB computer pick up a bad signal from one of your ABS sensor's, any auto parts place like autozone can do a free code reading, once you get the code get back with us here at FixYa so we can help you diag. your trouble code, also your brake will work fine it be like a car with out ABS, get it check out.
When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.
Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.
This means the ABS is not working. However, the conventional braking
system is working.
On each wheel that is equipped with ABS (front two wheels and rear wheels if they have discs), there will be an ABS ring in the wheel bearing which has magnets inside it and an ABS
sensor on the hub measures the distance or time in between the magnets
and it knows when you've hit the brakes or what speed you are doing and
so on. The light on the dash could possibly mean that ABS ring is
worn or dirty, the sensor is worn or dirty, a frayed cable, or the master plug may
have came loose which means there will be no signal sent from the sensors causing
the light to come on.
ok it sounds like you may have a bad wheel bearing if so this will cause the abs sensor to loose its signal from the wheel. if you find u have a bad wheel bearing replace it and that should solve ur problem
Def the wheel bearings/hub/speed sensor. I just bought a new wheel bearing comes with the hub and speed sensor as one. Runs about 80-100 dollars though but abs/traction light went off and stays off now.
