    yes ,take the wheel off and check the connection at the abs sensor if the connection is ok then cycle the key three times the abs light should flash a code look for the light to flash 2 times such as 4times first time and maybe 2 times for second time which would be a code 42 eg once you get the code you can ask a mechanic what the code means if the light comes on and stays on it should have a stored code

    That's fine IF there is a sensor at each wheel. I think the sensor is mounted
    on diff. gear for rear abs.
    Have ABS system scanned.
