Does ABS sensor need to be programmed?
The ABS module will need to be programmed once everything is installed. This procedure also will vary quite a bit depending on the manufacturer.
Are front ABS sensors the same?
Yes, the ABS Sensor and the Wheel Speed Sensor are both the same part. A wheel speed sensor is the most common failure in the ABS system. The reason your engine management and traction control light are also on is because those systems “borrow” wheel speed information from the ABS system.
How do you know which ABS sensor is bad?
To test the ABS sensor all you have to do is spin the wheel hub with your hand. It is important to do this slowly. Spinning the hub will cause a charge, and this will give the voltmeter reading. If the sensor is working right, the reading will be around 400 AC voltage.
Is it hard to replace ABS sensor?
These sensors are not too difficult to replace and will take you about an hour and the part will cost between $35 and $210 depending on the sensor. To find the sensor you will need check on Amazon or visit the car dealer or local parts store.
Are left and right ABS sensors interchangeable?

Can a speed sensor be replaced on a car?
This sort of sensor is used for many different systems on a modern car. Anything that rotates can have a sensor of this type mounted to it so that the powertrain control module (PCM) can monitor its rotation. If the ABS speed sensor fails or does not work properly, you can replace it on your own.
Where is the speed sensor on a truck?
ABS speed sensors are most commonly mounted at the wheels on most modern vehicles. This is the most efficient spot to mount them. Some older vehicles, trucks with solid axles in particular, will have them mounted on the rear differential.
How to replace your ABS wheel speed sensor?
