Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek
Awd and abs lights on. possible wheel speed sensor. I don't want to pay for 4 of them so how do I know which one I need? Is there a way to test them?
Easiest way is with a scanner. You can unplug each sensor and ohm test them but unless you need to... It\'s a pain that way. Find a scanner and get codes and change the wheel bearing assembly 7 out of 10 times it\'s RF

The ABS sensor, or wheel speed sensor is part of the hub wheel bearing assembly. If the bearing or ABS sensor fails, the entire hub assembly must be replaced. You can get further details about wheel hub assembly from http://www.carpartswarehouse.com/part/wheel-hub-bearing.html

You need to get a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual for those directions. Now as far as your problem is concerned it's not a sensor, it's a kinked brake line, bad Brake Compensator or bad Caliper. The compensator is the part that comes off the Brake booster and has all the brake lines attached to it, usually rectangle shaped. Now the problem could be an air bubble that got into the system if the brake fluid was low but that usually leads to mushy or soft brakes. And yes, it is possible the problem could be the ABS module itself but eliminate the other possible problems first.

i use a scanner to check to see all wheel sensors.getting a signal . it take two people. your scanner have to be type to check abs system. you can use ohms meter . it will tell you your wheel sensor is open or shorted out.

Speed sensors are on the outside of the trans but mounted to it. Go to your parts store and ask for your part. Once you have a visual of what it looks like, get under the car, find the trans and bingo!

There are speed sensors in both front hubs as well as the transmission. One of the three is giving you issues. I did find this interesting recall for your car however.
