Yes, it could be the sensor. Check that the wires are all connected, too. Check for corrosion on the connectors, etc.
The question is, WHICH sensor...There should be one at each wheel.

Have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . ABS and brake light on , codes are stored in the EBCM - electronic brake control module . Could be ABS relay , control module , pump motor and the only way to find out what the problem is , have checked for DTC'S

2002 Altima, jerking when driving, ABS kick in, ABS. Tracking Control and Slip...


My 2002 Altima Sometime the ABS kick in even though in a nice sunny dry road condition, sometime jerking when driving (doesn't matter high or low speed), sometime ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights all on at the same time.

I did a lots of research over the internet, not much firm solution I can find. A lot of tech suggest the ABS sensor, MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc. but no one know what is the exact problem is because it only happened intermittently.

But if I unplugged one of the ABS sensor, the ABS system will disable, the ABS. Tracking Control and Slip lights will all turn on, but the car have no more jerking and ABS kick in problem. So it will not be the MAF sensor, Spark plugs and/ or wires, Fuel injectors, Cad converter, etc.

To diagnostics and replaced a ABS sensor are very expensive, especially everyone said, when removed the sensor, 99% of the time the blot will break, it need a lots of time to get the remaining bolt back out, that is one of the reason which causing the repair cost so expensive, take up to $300 to 400 to change one sensor.

I am going to show you how to replace both sensor in a very cheap way.

Most of the forum I found and the majority possible problem cause are the rear ABS sensors. Not quite sure left or right, so I went to the Pick and Pull yard to bought a used pair of rear ABS sensors, it cost me CND$30.00, $15.00 each. Way cheaper than you take it out to just get diagnostic.

Follow the sensor wire and plug to replaced both sensors. My car run perfect now, no more jerking, no more ABS kick in by no reason, no more warning light turn on anymore.

Now comes to the biggest problem, when I removed the old sensor, I knew the bolt was going to broke. How can I re-tighten it back? No problem, just let it broke.

This is the way how I fix it: cut a piece of solid electrical wire, about 7 inch long, peel off the wire skin, I only need the copper wire (because copper wire is rust and heat proof).
Unscrew both bigger wheel bearing screws beside the sensor.
Bend the copper wire wrap around the screws, the middle of the wire need to put it through to hold down the back side of the sensor, when tighten the screws back, both screws will tighten the wire and hold down the sensor.

It is very hard to explain , I am going to attach some pictures to show everyone. Basically, with the tax I use around $32.00 to fix the problem.

Sorry about the last picture is quite fuzzy, it is hard to let my camera to get it focus properly, but you should be able to see it.

Because I already did mine, so I just use another screws to show everyone in the pictures how to do it. Also sorry for my English, hope every can understand what I mean.

Cut a wire around 7 inch long.

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-1_1.jpg
Peel off the wire skin, only need a solid copper wire

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-3_0.jpg
Bend it and wrap around the screw (in clockwise direction because it will be tighten in the same direction), cut the excessive length of wire if need

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-6_0.jpg
After bend will be in S shape.

25753173-ac1mhf1kx2cmm1ghfzcjfztv-3-10.jpg
Will mount it back to the car like that.

Finished, when tighten both screws, it will hold the sensor down tight.

Abs wheel speed sensor


Easy fix!,it's usually not the sensor but the wire breaks over time, get some high quality wire cut of ends solder together ends to new wire heat shrink to waterproof It works on a lot of cars and a lot cheaper than new sensors

Abs


Very common problem on Chevy SUV's
Take the sensor out and see if the ABS RING (the little teeth) in that hole are all rusted up. also try taking one of the washers off the Sensor before putting it back in the Bearing Hub. Sometimes the sensor is gapped too far away from the Ring

Abs light keeps coming on and abs kicks in when not needed


Sounds like bad ABS sensors or sensors are on their way out. Since they are built into the hub and are not individually replaceable, it may be a bit on the pricey side. For now, just pull the fuse for the ABS to stop them from coming on.

When i went to start my 2005 chevy cobalt my T/c light came on also at the same time my abs light kicked on! what could be the problem?


Since both of these systems use the same wheel speed sensors, I would start there. The only way to not just throw parts at it by trying to guess what sensor it is would be to have a code scanner that reads ABS codes and it'll tell you exactly what sensor has failed. It would be worth it to pay a shop to scan the ABS codes so you don't have to replace all of them to make sure you get the right one.

My abs light came on along with the trac off light


Think you will be going into the shop with this one. Need to scan the ABS for codes, most likely one of the front sensors is no good. I am 99% sure they are part of the hub bearing asm. Usually its the left one
