2001 isuzu rodeo sport: abs light has been on since.

Customer Question

i have a 2001 isuzu rodeo sport. i was cut off the other day and hopped a curb. my abs light has been on since. then today the car started shifting real hard and transmission ligth came on. i pulled over towed it. had my boyfrind put a knew vehicle speed sensor on transmission. it started and drove fine at operating temp but abs light is still on. he checked wiring to back sensor on top of differential. theres no plug next to the wheel and gas tank just wiring continued in another harness. were gonna go test drive it and see if the tranny light comes on or it shifts weird. ivw heard of a worange wire i can use to get it to flash and i can tell what the lights on for. anyone have any suggestions on that jump wire like a honda or why this lights on.

It will take a scan tool to read the abs codes, but most likely the bearing hub assembly that hit the curb is damaged which will affect the wheel speed sensor and cause a abs light.

is the speed sensor on top of the differential

can these sensors affect the transmission shifting normal. ive just heard of vehicle speed sensors and abs sensors tying intogether to were if the abs sensor goes bad it can affect the transmission vehicle speed sensor?
Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.
The abs system and sensors should have no affect on the way the transmission shifts.

And a bad abs sensor should not cause the VSS to fail.
