good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist the most common cause is a wheel speed sensor. if you have a parts store pull the code, it will identify the sensor not working. the rear sensor in the differential is the most common to fail. Roy

Did you mean the speed sensor is locatged inside the differential/rear end pumpkin? If not where exactly is this speed sensor?What is the 2nd and 3rd most likely cause of abs light?I went to AUTOZONE and they did not have a code reader for the abs. Is there another parts store that may have one?
Expert:  roy replied 2 years ago.
all we are doing is guessing. I gave you the most common failure but before I would do anything, you need to have the code read. Roy

Thanks for nothing. It is obvious we're guessing plus you didn't answser my follow on question. In the future, I'll deal with someone that knows how to get their message across in writing-- to quote you..."if I have a parts store"???---"the rear sensor in the differential. . ."???

without the code, yes we are guessing. I cannot answer the follow up either until you give me the needed info to help thats correct. you need to give or anyone you speak to the code to narrow the area of failure. maybe someone else has a crystal ball for you to guess. good luck. we had a ways to go to the answer and please be patient if anyone picks this up. give them the benefit of the doubt that they know what they are doing
