ABS LIGHT ON / BAD WHEEL SPEED SENSOR / HOW TO REPLACE

RECENTLY BOUGHT A 1999 TOYOTA CAMRY 4 CYLINDER AND THE ABS LIGHT JUST CAME ON - FRONT BRAKES WERE REPLACED PRIOR TO PURCHASE - HAD CAR LOOKED AT AND MECHANIC STATED THE RIGHT FRONT WHEEL SPEED SENSOR WAS BAD. CURIOUS AS TO HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO REPLACE AND IF THERE ARE ANY STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS I CAN GET TO DO THE REPAIR MYSELF. I AM FAIRLY HANDY WITH AUTO REPAIR BUT NEVER HAVE REPALCED A WHEEL SENSOR BEFORE.

You can do it yourself. One bolt. Check the plug and wires before you replace the sensor. A stick or whatever can break a wire and the sensor reads bad, but really it just needs a wire. Worth a quick look before you spend the $ on a new part.

Most ABS sensors are very simple to replace.
Unplug the sensor wire and unscrew the one bolt holding it in. It pulls right out.

There are ABS wheel speed sensors on the front wheels behind the hubs. It is possible if the hub where replaced either the pick up ring mounted to the hub itself was not installed or might have purchase non abs hubs or they just did not switch the wheel speed pickup ring on the new hub. Another thing could be either the wheel speed sensors are mis adjusted or when they replaced the hubs they hung the spindle by the abs wire and either pulled it out of socket or messed up the wires internally. Here is a basic abs system http://www.ehow.com/how_8511860_diagnose-abs-brakes.html if you have any other questions please let me know. Also please leave good feedback.

I'm having a problem with the ABS brake and traction lights on the dash always on.


If the ABS light os on the brake and traction control lights will also typically illuminate. Your best option is to have the ABS system scanned to see what is causing the light to come on. Once you know the code(s) it will be a lot easier to figure out what the problem is.

The brake pads and shoes are not elec., your abs light is on because your abs computer pick up a bad signal from one of your abs sensor's,, take it to any auto parts or some one like autozone where they can do a code reading and get back us with the code so we can help you diag. your trouble code.

Abs light on and trac off light on new front brakes recently installed


First thing I would check if brakes were installed is that the abs wires did not accidentally get disconnected. If that did not occur you will need a scan tool to determine why the abs light came on. It is probably due to a bad wheel speed sensor.The trac light is on because currently your abs is disabled and the traction control requires use of the abs system to function.

Popping on left front when applying brakes (ABS).


Is your ABS light on? If so, you have a bad wheel speed sensor at the LF wheel. Or, you may have rust buildup on the teeth that the speed sensor measures. Pull off the axle, and check the toothed gear that resided in the spindle.

If not, you may havea sticking caliper piston, or inadequate lubrication on the caliper slides.
