The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

  • Visitor,

    ABS system constantly active when brakes applied. Sensors were corroded from winter salt etc. I just pulled the fuse out and killed the system. They are a joke anyways and not required for inspections. A real bad design flaw that costs a fortune to get fixed. Not worth the money. Same yourself a lot of trouble and just pull the 15A fuse in the fuse box. I have driven for over 40 years without ABS just fine and don't miss them one bit. Just more Detroit planned obsolescence to get into your wallet.
