Wheel Sensors at RockAuto: 2002 CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY 3.8L V6 ABS Wheel Speed Sensor | RockAutoUPDATE AND questions.
So I drove about a week with the ABS fuse pulled and it was just like a vehicle without ABS or traction control. Both the ABS and Brake lights were illuminated.
A friend brought me a scanner to borrow so I reinstalled the fuse, read the codes ( left rear sensor AND some valve acting up code), cleared the codes and after a short drive the left rear code (and ABS light) reappeared. This was about a week ago.
Today, I performed a tire rotation, and while I had the wheel off, I inspected the sensor and it appeared to NOT have been torn from the vehicle due to road debris. I pulled a little clip, and was able to remove the sensor tip from the wheel hub. It looked OK so I put it back in with a little spit for o-ring lubricant... That's just how I fly these days...
I didn't have the scanner so I drove about a mile and the light did not go away on its own.
** I would have unplugged / replugged the connector, but I don't know where to access it. Advice here? The wire seems to go up into the chassis... Do I unplug the rear sensor wire somewhere from inside the vehicle??
Are both the rear sensors the same? Before I blindly throw a part at it (a new sensor) I'm inclined to swap left to right to see if the fault code swaps to the other wheel... Unless y'all are highly confident that the sensor is most always the fault.
Your guidance and experience will be greatly appreciated.
Happy New year!
Looks to be the same sensor for both sides rear, fronts are different. The scanner said a sensor, so I would go with that.
