What does the ABS sensor connect to?
This component, which is also referred to as an ABS sensor, is attached to the hub of a drive tire and is responsible for monitoring multiple vehicle functions such as traction control, anti-lock braking systems, and obviously, the vehicle’s speed.
Do ABS sensors need to be programmed?
The ABS module will need to be programmed once everything is installed. This procedure also will vary quite a bit depending on the manufacturer.
Where is the ABS sensor on a Honda?
The ABS sensor is responsible for sending pulses from the wheel to the computer. This will monitor the wheels rotation, telling the computer if the vehicle is skidding and to apply the anti-lock braking system if necessary. The connector for the sensor is located behind the fender, under the hood.
How is an active sensor used in an ABS system?
The active sensor is a proximity sensor with integrated electronics that is supplied with a defined voltage from the ABS control unit. A multipole ring can be used as an impulse wheel while at the same time being integrated in a sealing ring of a wheel bearing. Inserted in this sealing ring are magnets with alternating pole directions (Figure 1).
How do you clean ABS sensor on car?
Remove the bolts that attach it to the rest of the suspension. You may also need to remove a few bolts that attach the wiring to the car’s frame or suspension, to pull the sensor away from the vehicle for cleaning. Follow the line and/or wiring harness to see if there are more bolts. Remember not to force it or pull too hard.
What causes the ABS light to come on?
There are many things that can cause your anti-lock brake (ABS) light to come on. Some of those things are serious, but oftentimes it just means you need to clean the sensors. One or more dirty wheel sensors (all cars with anti-lock brakes have at least one) can cause the system to trigger the ABS light during the computer’s self-evaluation cycle.
