Service engine soon light came on, got it checked and it was the wheel sensor light, the front two wheels
2014Feb17 replaced front passenger ABS sensor at apx 161K miles because ABS Light was on. Didn't notice problems immediately, but now in 2016May it happens more and more frequently - ABS activates partially at inappropriate times and causes extended stop distances. It's kicking in and preventing effective stops because I don't figure out that I need to hit the brakes harder until it's too late. When it does kick in, it's not working right - instead of quick rat-a-tat-tat intermittent braking, it seems to be kicking the brakes off and holding them off. I can't tell which wheel(s) fail(s) but I think it's the right front sensor that was replaced in 2014.
