Perhaps you have a shorting wire. check carefully, my ABS always used to come on for no reason during driving and it turned out there was 2 terminals bent together and touching.

SOURCE: 2008 Scion xB - Brake, VSC & ABS warning

I have the same problem as you, with the same car. It seems to be moisture related. Mine is two months out of warranty, so I inspected the rear wheel speed sensors, like your dealer said. There is a TSB (technical service bulletin) concerning this problem, so Toyota/Scion do indeed know that these sensors are failing. In my case, one of the sensor connectors was broken when the car was assembled, which bent the tiny sensor pin, which broke off while I was attempting to get the connector plugged back into it. I make my living as an electronic technician so I'm not inexperienced with such things. Anyway, rumor has it you're looking at over $700 at the dealer to replace one sensor, since you cannot replace only the sensor. The part (rear hub assy) can be obtained online for $290, plus the wire for $37. All in all, it's a crappy situation. A known problem concerning key safety systems on the car, and Toyota neither issues a recall nor do they extend the warranty.

Have Volvo V70 T5 1998.ABS light on speedometer not working

I would check to see if there is a fault code for a vehicle speed sensor (VSS), so you need to have the engine control system (known as the OBD2 control system)) module scanned for fault codes to see if the VSS has set a failure code.

Where is the speed sensor located on my 2008 Wrangler x 3.8 5-speed manual trans?

why? got DTC errors? please post them. just curious , me too.
5speed stick, there is no such transmission here. ok JK08 ,usa.

mine is 6 speed stick, the 5speed option is the automatic.
6sp is DEH trans.or NSG 370
with NV241 transfer case.
my wild guess is its really a 6 speed manual, with 4wd.
am I correct>?
and is USA, not an Export.
my fsm does not cover, 6 speed VSS, oops.
i wonder if the VSS on the 6peed, uses speed from the ABS.
the automatic vss is on the left side of the tranny case. and input speed and engine rpm speed. but that is A/T.

M/T as your post clearly states is another matter.
the parts list for the 370 box shows no sensors at all ,just 1 reverse switch, then i look at the car 241 transfer case then the parts list.
it too , dont have a sensor. only , 4wd switch and is not a speed sensor.
so that leaves 3 more,
front axle, no.
rear axle ,no (only a lock up switch option)
leaving what, ABS.
must be the genius at JEEP said, one day, well gee abs knows speed, why not just get that for free on all 4speeds.

the A/T needs the sensors to shift right, but not any manual ever.

The electric drawings for jeep jk08 show no speed sensors at all on the M/T. (dedicated to forward speed via the transmission side)

see here a nice JK08 full parts list in PDF.

Most likely a wheel speed sensor starting to go bad, possably a wiring or Modual Issue.

Need help locating vss on trans for a 2000 F350 4X4 7.3 motor

1. Your ABS/ VSS can be removed and cleaned with just a clean rag, no need for wd-40 or any other solvent, also carefully clean out the hole on top of the differential, lift the vehicle (place in neutral) and check the sprocket wheel inside the pumpkin for possible missing teeth or to see if it is loose.

2. The VSS (part # F85F-9E731-AA) can also be tested with an ohms meter, it should measure ~1.9 K-ohm or higher (lower than 1.9 requires replacement).

3. The VSS is a hall-effect sensor, connect a volt meter to the sensor connector and wave a piece of metal (pair of pliers or flat metal) about a half inch away from the sensor, and you will consistently see a variation in voltage, if no movement on the volt meter is observed, replace the sensor.

4. You also have the two front wheel ABS sensors, try cleaning them first, and carefully reinstalling them.

5. When the VSS sensor is malfunctioning, the PCM may try to get input from the TSS (turbine speed sensor, top of the transmission), and as it turns out, the same return wire is used by the OSS (output speed sensor, tail end of transmission), check these two sensors also, clean them and test them (1.10 K-ohm or higher). These are also Hall Effect sensors, so check for voltage as described in paragraph 3 above.

6. Pay attention to see if your ABS light blinks when you start the vehicle, just before it stays solid. If this is happening, count the number of blinks, as this is actually a code and the blinking means the vehicle is trying to communicate with you.

7. Last, if nothing above corrected the problem, I would start tracing RFI (radio frequency interference), one sure area is usually your fuel pump (wires running along side VSS wiring. ABS/VSS wiring is routed directly to the ABS module.

I hope this information works for you.

There are two "speed sensors" though that can be confused at the parts store. They don't look the same but they are listed almost the same. The one on the rear diff is listed as the "ABS speed sensor"....the one on the tranny is listed as the "Speed sensor" The rear one is the cheapest and easiest to replace...about $12.

2008 titan, brakelight,abs light,4wd light all on right turn signal blinks once and won't let me shift out of park??

I think it is most likely a wiring problem causing this. Titans are notorious for having the exhaust rust through after the muffler. I would trace the passenger side wiring harness back and check for fused together wires. I take it your Titan is a floor shifter not a column. If so I suggest taking the circular cap off right by the shifter (shift interlock over ride). If you can put a key in and compress the over ride then you should be able to shift through gears to rule out a transmission problem. No maf sensor would cause this, nor would a bad transmission. Make sure to check all fuses that are labeled electronic parts, they are connected to your interlock system. The abs and wheel speed sensor is what is making it impossible to shift into 4x4 . All of these problems are separate fuses, but the wires are all in the same harness running past the exhaust.

ABS light keeps coming on

You have a wheel speed sensor that is not working correctly. The ABS computer is losing the signal from the wheel speed sensor and interprets this as a wheel locking up, so it is going into antilock mode. When it does this on dry pavement when it is obvious that there is no wheel actually locking up it is called "false Antilock Mode" or "Overactive Antilock Mode". This is a pretty common problem on several vehicles.

The system on your Blazer uses wheel speed sensors which are an integral part of the front wheel bearing and hub assembly to determine wheel speed for the front wheels. It uses the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) to determine rear wheel lock-up. The VSS data is shared between the Body Control Module (BCM), the Vehicle Control Module (VCM), The Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the Transfer Case Control Module (TCCM) and the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM - AKA "Antilock Module").
The problem is MOST LIKELY being caused by a front wheel bearing being loose (pretty common) which will require replacement of the front wheel bearing and hub assembly. However, it can also be caused by the VSS or a breakdown in communication between any of the modules that share the VSS data.

If you have either of the front wheel bearings making noise (growling or whining) then that is almost positively the cause of your problem. However, if it cannot be determined this way, the computer network will need to be scanned to find out which it is.

4-wheel drive will not lock-Nissan Titan

I checked a consumer advocate site and realized that I am not the only one with this problem. I read that there is a problem with the Nissan Titan tailpipe falling off, well the problem with this is that it melts the wire harnes that goes to the abs and rear wheel sensors. Since this system is all interconnected it causes the 4 wheel drive not to work. In particular I found an unprotected wire harness disconnected by the passanger side rear wheel that was broke, after stripping this wire and reconnecting it, it turned on the 4-wheel drive. Make sure the truck is off and it is in 2 wheel mode when this is reconnected it could cause a blown fuse or an electric shock. Trial an reading free blogs solved my $675 diognostic fee, pass this on I am sure I am not the only one with this problem.
