The front wheel speed sensors are built into the steering knuckle. If you can get under the car, you may be able to remove them without taking off the tire. The sensor is held in by a single bolt and has a 2-pin electrical connector that should be located near to where the suspension mounts to the vehicle frame. The wire for the sensor should be secured by the same clip that secures the brake hose.

The rear sensors are similar, but will either be mounted to the drum brake backing plate or the the disk brake adapter (depending on what type of rear brakes you have).

These sensors are usually pretty easy to get to. Even though you can probably reach them from underneath the car, it will probably be easier to reach them with the tires removed. Just be sure to support your car using jack stands.

The check engine light code should be for the transmission speed sensor which is on the side of the transmission. The wheel sensors would be for the ABS.
