2001 Nissan Maxima Q&A
2001 Nissan Maxima Question: check engine light returns a wheel speed sensor issue.
How does the wheel speed sensor cause a check engine light. If it does should I replace the sensor? - Visitor
yes replace wheel speed sensor, it sounds like it is going bad, believe it or not, the wheel sensor does alot - Tburg
The engine computer needs to know the vehicle speed, and the wheel speed sensors provide that info for the computer. - Bret Bodas
put a computer on find what is wrong and witch speed sensor is bad - delane 72 garage and body shop
Is it a code for a wheel speed sensor or a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)? VSS would cause a check engine light failure would result in loss of Speedometer and cruise control. A scan tool or oscilloscope is needed to check each wheel speed sensor. - patrick mannion
You need to pinpoint which sensor is bad and yes it should be replaced. Each one acts as a speedometer to the ECM so if one is different or out it will kick the light on... - Visitor
