The sensors are actually part of the hub/bearing assembly, the entire hub would need replaced.***DO NOT OVER-TORQUE!***
Autozone would probably be the cheapest, however, DO NOT purchase the store brand!

How can I be sure if my PCM is bad???


I would try disconnecting battery again. Disconnect both cables and touch them together for a few seconds. This will reset all modules. Wierd that you had so many codes after just disconnecting battery. Sometimes very hard to tell if ecm is bad.

2000 vw passat glx diagnosed(dealer) front wheel sensors bad - metal filings on old sensor after accident. have new ones - does ecu need to be reset from dealer or are replacement parts plug and play


I don't think the dealer needs to get involved, if you are just replacing the wheel sensors. Follow the repair procedure, and if it says to disconnect the battery first, then do so. It is plausible that an accident could scrape metal filings from the rotors or wheels and throw them around the sensors, I would think. Well, good luck.

Replaced front brakes ABS light comes on and


Hi:
The ABS light on means an ABS malfunction. You should be able to have a auto parts store scan your car and find out what code is tripped, for free, but my guess is that one of your front wheel speed sensors is out of whack, or dirty or something.
When the light is on, your normal brakes work fine, but you have no ABS, so your car will take longer to stop in emergency situations.

Abs and t/c lights are on have had full break job done both front and back wheel sensors are working but when coming to a slow stop I feel the car start to grind like if it needed breaks I can feel this...


When there is such a feeling, it is the brakes that needs total replacement.

Also you might have to check the master brakes for any leaks. And you need to check the bushing rubbers on the steering rack too.

Be careful and fix this on time.

I have a 2003 Passat 1.8L turbo sedan. 2 months


Can't be 100% sure but if you didn't have this problem before doing the work on the wheel bearing I can only think 1 of two things. When they removed your whhel bearing the sensor ring for the abs got damaged or the abs sensor is damaged or not pressed into place in the knuckle. The front sensors are not screwed on, they just have a little sleeve and at time with the vibrations of doing a wheel bearing they get loose. You most probally won't have an abs fault due to these problems.

I'd be checking the sensor (ABS) at that wheel, (right front) and adjusting rear brakes to proper clearance, as well as inspect them for proper operation with wheels off.

ABS and Hand Break problem


operating errors in your ABS modulator. May be an issue with an ABS sensor. Get Vag-Com programme to interact with computer to solve. Or bring to Main dealer as you've got a reduced braking capability right now
