Wheel Speed Sensor

 

Is the Antilock Brake System  amber light on, is the red BRAKE warning light on too or do the brakes just feel funny or do you fell a "buzzing" in the brake pedal just as you come to a stop?  You certainly have ABS brake problems.   You may have a bad wheel speed sensor. 

 

Part of the ABS or Anti-Lock Brake System, the Wheel Speed Sensor constantly sends information about the currect speed of each wheel to the ABS Control Module.  When the ABS Control Module detects a problem with a Wheel Speed Sensor, it does 3 things:

  • It turns off the ABS system for safety
  • It stores a message in its memory to tell the technician where to look
  • and it turns on the amber ABS malfunction indicator light to tell you that the system is off and needs repair.  Some computers will also turn on the red Brake malfunction indicator light and/or the amber Check Engine / Service Engine Soon light too just to get your attention.

 

Some wheel speed sensors are separately serviced  (shown on the right ) while others are built into the wheel bearing ( shown below ).
