Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my recollection, if the connector is white with 2 wires (black/yellow & black/brown) then it would be above the headlight, behind the windshield retainer.

Alternately, if it is the other white connector with 3 wires (same as above + green/black), then it would on the left side fairing.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have a 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue the code c1226 and c1233 what does these codes mean.the track off ,anti-lock,service soon light are on what does this mean

C1226 Right Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
C1233 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing
You could have a bad sensor on the left front wheel or bad wiring. Have it checked by a mechanic. Your anti-lock braking system is probably disabled under these conditions.

How to fix abs on front brake for 2010 road king?

If you got any magnetism near the left side wheel bearing you will have destroyed its sensing/signalling ability. The magnetic pickup should only go back on one way in one position but check that it is located near the sensing wheel bearing. When it goes on it should be rotated up If the wheel somehow got mixed up and on backwards the magnetic bearing would be on the wrong side, away from the pickup. Check your wiring for damage.

Never pull the wheel speed sensor cable taut or use it to support any other parts.
Install the wheel speed sensor with the index pin on the out-board side or the sensor will be damaged. After the axle is installed rotate the front wheel speed sensor until the index pin makes contact with the shoulder on the fork slider and then route the wheel speed sensor cable up to the lower fork bracket along with the brake hose.

If installing a new sensor on a Road King and other Fork mounted fairing models turn the front wheel to the right fork stop and then feed the connector up through the opening in the front of the lower fork bracket and connect it to the socket housing.

If installing a new sensor on a frame mounted fairing model first turn the front wheel to the right fork stop and then connect the front wheel speed sensor connector and feed the connector under the main wiring harness conduit into the left side of the fairing bracket.

In all cases secure the sensor cable and fender tip lamp wires using
three cable straps as follows by capturing the front wheel
speed sensor cable and brake hose at the brake hose lower crimp and then about the middle of the way between the upper and lower brake hose crimps and securing both the wheel speed sensor cable and the brake hose along with the front fender tip lamp wires, if is has a fender tip lamp. THEN about 2.5 in. (63.5 mm) below the brake hose upper crimp secure the front wheel speed sensor cable, the brake hose and again, if there is a fender tip lamp, the front fender tip lamp wires. The I insert the front wheel speed sensor cable in the clip by pushing on the lip at the rear of the clip to disengage it from the bracket, rotate the tab stamped ABS rearward until the clip is perpendicular to the bracket and install the cable and then rotate the tab forward and apply pressure until the lip engages and then gently pull the cable to verify that the clip is installed properly.

Where is the abs speed sensor on a 5 series bmw?as the abs light and traction light have both illuminated

You have 4 wheel speed sensors. There is one at each wheel located just behind the hub. You can trace it by loacting the black insulated wire leading out from the wheel well and going behind the wheel.

2007 chevy silverado steering shudder over bumps

Are the wheel lug nuts tight? Jack up the front end and wiggle each wheel to check for loose wheel bearings. If the truck has a lot of miles, the upper and especially the lower ball joints may be worn enough to cause problems. With the wheels back on the ground, have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth slowly while you watch each tie rod end for looseness. If the left wheel moves before the right one does, there is play somewhere in the linkage between the wheels.

Fairly easy. You have to remove the breather hose and the two bolts that attach the shift linkage on top of the tranny. Unplug the wire lead & one bolt that holds it in. You will have to twist it as you pull it out.

1. Put the vehicle in gear, apply the parking brake and break loose the driveaxle/hub nut with a socket and large breaker bar.
2. Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support is securely on lackstands. Remove the wheel. Remove the driveaxle/hub nut.
3. Unbolt the brake caliper and hang it out of the way with wire. Remove the brake disc.
4. On models with four wheel ABS, trace the electrical lead for the wheel speed sensor along the upper control arm, then forward along the frame rail and unplug the electrical connector.
5. Remove the hub assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts. Remove the brake disc shield and wheel speed sensor assembly and set aside.
6. Tap the hub assembly from side-to-side to break it loose from the steering knuckle. Pull the hub assembly off the end of the driveaxle. Wrap the end of the driveaxle with a rag to prevent damaging it. If the hub is stuck on the splines on the end of the driveaxle, use a puller to free it.
7. Installation is reverse of removal process. Be sure to lubricate the driveaxle splines with multi-purpose grease, and tighten all of the fasteners to the proper torque.
