    Thanks for all your help. My ABS light came on and I was reading that it might just be a dirty sensor. I thought I would give it a try before I spent money on a simple fix that I could do myself. Cyndi

Cyndi,

Antilock Brake Sensors are at each wheel. They are mounted to the chassis near the back side of the wheel. They point at a toothed ring on the axle. This info is sent to the ABS computer which then decides if one wheel is spinning faster than any other whell. If yes, it pulses the brakes on that wheel to slow it down to the same speed.

The rear sensor is attached to the rear axle housing near the center. What do you need this info for?
please rate as solved if this is what you need.

    just remember, even if the abs light is on, you still ahve your egular power brakes. Just not anti-lock.



    Does it still go through prove=out when you start moving after an engine start? You should hear the ABS pump run for a couple of seconds at 4 mph.

Honda jazz 2006 (left abs sensor fail)


left what? front?
that is the folly of seeing a DTC and just guessing?
first off the ABS brain has no idea at ALL what part is bad.!!!!
it only reports,d. a test that failed, or as called monitors.
the tech (pro) looks at this as only clue (its real) and checks the whole system.
1: sure bad sensor (rare undamaged), sure, (look) full of dirt clods , for sure. bashed to death? sure. visuals are a top thing.
2: damage to wires at sensor or connector , look for corrosion too. in conn...
3: brakes bad, !! oops, it warning you early and saved your bacon....
think for a moment, if the ABS fires off, and attempts to slow a wheel
and the brakes are weak or sticking (locking up too) then it has no
idea on earth why? only that it IS wrong, and it dont know if the sensor is bad (rare if no damage seen) or brakes are Fubar.
i'd have taken off the wheel.
1: and a full visual on brakes, and sensor.
2: bad pads, bad caliper pistions (sticking) or air in system. or caliper slide pins seized, or rotor warped or Gawd forbid cracked,
3: wheel bearings loose (bad) or seizing (double bad.),

just focus on wheel RPM, what can make it wrong.
LOTS !!!!

if rear wheel?, add ebrake to ploy. all you said is left.

some cars are even more complex. 4wd.

My abs light stays on


The ABS light is on because you have a code stored in your ABS module. It is a good idea to bring it to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem. They can tell you precisely which wheel sensor is bad or which ABS component is faulty. There is one wheel sensor at each wheel, directly over the exciter ring at each hub. If you want to scan the code yourself, you will need a Ford Super Star II tester or an equivalent scan tool to access the ABS system. Take a look at the front and rear ABS notched rotors, and make sure they are not caked up with debris, oil or dirt because the sensors read these notches.

2000 escort abs is engaging everytime the brakes are depressed, then the abs light cones on then the brakes work normally, with out abs . Thanks joe


Joe, check the brakes. This happens when cylinders or pistons freeze and you are actually only braking with partial brakes being applied, which leads to lock up, which invokes ABS.

Look for damaged or worn abs sensor wires at the wheels. Also, metal flakes sometimes alter input singals.

Abs light comes on. had a person look at it and he feels its the pump. Is this the right direction to go in?


Good chance that the ABS sensor are dirty or the lead wires are corroded. The common ABS sensor that goes bad 95% of the time are the front ABS sensors and there located on the inner wheel hub.
Pull the front wheel off and inspect the ABS sensor on the inside of the wheel hub for any damages and the ABS lead wire to the ABS. Use Brake parts cleaner to spray any dirt that has accumulated on the sensors it self. At worst, your going to have to replace the sensor and that can be picked up at Auto Zone and they will have the instruction for you to get the job done.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe

Abs problems i have a 98 k1500 the front right


Inspect the ABS sensor on the front wheels, make sure that there is no damage to the wire leads and that the ABS sensor is not damaged or touching the speed ring on the front wheel hub. You may be luck and the ABS sensor is dirty, it can be cleaned with a good spray of brake parts cleaner and make sure the ABS is not loose from the mounting bracket on the hub. Good luck and keep me posted.

When both of these lights are on you should suspect a wheel sensor. Check the sensor at each wheel (look for small 2-wire plug). Make sure each one is securely plugged in and no wires are broken or bare. Also make sure no sensor has been damaged. Dealt with same issue with one yesterday and it had a sensor left unplugged after wheel service.

ABS fuses (#7, 16, 41) missing from 2001 Passat.


most likely Steve is correct about the sensors, they are the most common problem, if you tinker with cars yourself you can try them at home first. jack up one corner at a time ...the sensors just push in to a copper shim in the hub. move back and forth a few times with pliers and they will come right out. look over the wires to be sure there is no damage < chunks of ice and froxen snow are know to cause broken wires> if wires look ok spray clean the reluctor wheel on c/v joint and the sensor itself. if you see metal fuzz looking stuff on the sensor ,that is junk from your brakes and needs cleaned off. the metal dust causes the trigger in sensor to malfunction. do all 4 corners one at a time then drive the car if abs light and flashing brake light go out your fixed but still should have codes cleared to make sure there is no there problems. if this doesn't fix it best bet is to have a dealer you trust to look it over , brakes are important. once abs light is out see if you pass your inspection, if not ask why then post on here what they tell you and we'll address that . good luck.

2002 2WD CHEVY TAHOE ABS


Its possible that right wheel speed sensor is dropping out early making the truck think that wheel is locking up. That will activate the ABS and let the brake go on the right wheel which will make the vehicle pull slightly left. The only way to know for sure is to watch the wheel speeds on a scanner and see which one is drpping out first and replacing that speed sensor/bearing assembly.

good Luck
