ABS Warning Light Due to Failed Wheel Speed Sensor on Toyota Camry

At higher mileages, an anti-lock brake system wheel speed sensor may wear out and illuminate the ABS warning light. It is recommended to replace the sensor with a factory part and be sure to clean all rust and debris from the mounting area because the mounting distance is critical. Failure to do so may result in the new sensor setting false trouble codes. Be sure to check the condition and runout of the front wheel bearings on the 2WD and 4WD vehicles and the CV joints on the 4WD vehicles since worn wheel bearings and/or CV joints can cause the ABS trigger rings to rub against the ABS sensors and damage them.

Recently purchased used for a work car. The ABS light stays on but the car handles and breaks perfectly. The guy I bought it from stated that it was a bad sensor but couldn't remember exactly which one. I'll replace it based upon this blog and let you know what happens...

ABS light comes on; I had the front and rear brakes replaced; struts replace; fuel ingition cleaning, power steering pressure line replace; 3 speed sensors right side replaced and I am going back to probably get my 4th speed sensor tomorrow.
ABS light is on and I have no idea what it means.
