they all worked, then I replaced the left hand hub carrier and the lights came on, so assumed I broken it when I removed it - it had seized into the carrier...

dont know but the dealer might be able to see which one is out, it must record which sensor has failed but at the cost they are it would be cheaper to buy two instead of pay for the labour

i would have thought that the ecu will record which sensor is faulty, it might be worth seeing if your dealer can hook the car up to the computer and see which sensor is down..

I bought mine finally last week, it was like $91.00 or something. I took a guess and bought the left one since the tire pressure light was on, and the front left tire didn't have the abs working.. anyways it took like 5 minutes to install and i guess correctly. At first the lights didn't go off. then i turned the car on and off and after it did it cycle the lights went off

Well when my ABS light was on, my ABS, and all other brake related systems didn't work. So, I'm not saying go unplug the driver side sensor from the hub and-zip tie it back, but it would make the circut incomplete and thus NO ABS.

The light is anoyoing and I did have one panic stop with out ABS on the freeway.....it was not fun making a nice baldspot on my 615's.

what all would it effect if I unplugged it? I would still get the same stopping power right? just no abs? I loved my shiftercart and braking because you could control it more and actually decrease stopping distance. just gotta make sure not to slam and lock the brakes haha

IF the ABS light is on then the ABS, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, and Corner Brake Control systems are not active. Now my sensor was faulty and I was just lazy replacing it. I am not condoning disconecting the system, but if you do you are at your own discresion.

I'm not a fan either, but at least it's not as annoying as the TC.

Actually, out of my last three cars, the Mini is the only one on which the ABS kinda almost works. I used to have a 95 Z28, and I was convinced that the ABS was worse than just sticking my foot out the door and dragging it on the pavement.

We brought it to a wet parking lot one night, and I had a friend drive it and slam on the brakes at around 25mph. The sucker would lock a wheel, drag it for around 15 feet, then it would roll again for a moment, only to lock again and repeat the process.

I took it to the dealer twice, and both times they said, "It all checks out!" I asked them if I could disable it completely, and they said, "Oh, you don't want to do THAT!"

I'm still amazed I survived the ownership of that car without wrecking it.
