    Unhappy Replaced n/s front ABS sensor

    My ABS and traction control lights came up , on checking all wheels I found the front n/s lead from the ABS sensor to the connector on the bottom of the spring missing, it looks as though it's been torn away.
    I have replaced with a new hub ( the sensor cable is moulded in).
    The How2 for brake disc replacement was very helpful.
    Have tried disconnecting the battery for over an hour but the ABS/Traction control light are still on, is there anything else I can try?
    I have road tested the car but need to find some loose gravel to check out the ABS.

    I think you will need to get the exact faultcode read from the car,
    This will indicate exactly what is wrong.

    or have the existing fault cleared from the memory to see if the car logs a new one. which in turn will indiacte where the problem is.

    Thanks for the reply, today I had the fault codes cleared but it came back immediatley as front n/s abs sensor high volts, low volts and then a couple of other things all appertaining to the abs sensor.
    The garage I used had another vehicle they were working on where they had just fitted a new sensor and it to was still showing abs fault!!!!!
    My old sit up and beg side valve Ford Anglia was never like this.
    If you put ameter across the ABS sensor what sort of reading should you get.

    Fitted a FAG 93186388 which is the same as the one fitted by a vauxhall dealer 2.5 years ago.
    Do you know if there are any electrical connectors behind the n/s front wheel arch liner?
    and are there any more that I should check?
    Thanks Brian

    I don't think there are any connectors behind the wheelarches - just the ones inside them behind the suspension struts where the wire from the main loom connects to the wire from the ABS sensor in the hub.

    Inspect the wiring to see if it is in good condition and ensure the connectors in the plug under the wheelarch are clean and dry.

    Also, can you get a 'known good' ABS sensor and connect that? If that clears the fault then it's definitely a faulty ABS sensor in the new hub.

    There is a way of testing the ABS sensors in the wheel hubs by connecting an oscilloscope to the pins in the wiring connector and checking that it produces exactly the right pulses of voltage as the wheel is turned. Any deviation from the specification will cause an error.

    As a previous poster mentioned, there have been a few posts on here of new non-genuine hubs causing ABS problems and having to be replaced with genuine ones.

    Thanks for the info , not sure how I am going to get a good known hub, I will not be able to use the one on the off side, 1. they are a pig to get off after they have corroded a bit. 2. If I did use the off side one that would still show a fault as one would still be missing.

    Can you swap the hub you bought for another one on the basis that it appears to be faulty? Or perhaps you could return it if you can get your money back and then buy a genuine one? However...

    At this point, I would consider getting the fault codes read if you haven't had this done already because it's hard to fix a fault when you don't know exactly what the fault is. Wheel speed sensor faults are specific to each wheel and the descriptions are quite specific as well so they should help to pinpoint the fault.
