Default Wheel Speed Sensor Problem

2010 Jeep Rubi, 4" lift, 35" tires, stock axles

Had a code and esp/traction control light coming on. Code called for bad wheel speed sensor right front. Jeep drove ok, just the lights on the dash and the code. Changed the hub and cable. Now when braking, the abs goes crazy and the Jeep is pulling hard left when braking. No codes but esp/traction, abs going crazy, and pulling hard left. Thoughts?

Could be the offset of the sensor, so its not reading correctly. Might need to shim the sensor for it to be lined up correctly. The only way i know how to test it is with the Jscan app. there is a way to see if the sensor is reading the teeth correctly. so you would jack the front end up and try t spin the tire in a constant motion, if the signal is going crazy then adjust until it calms down and seems about right for the speed you are spinning the tire.

Where in the hell did you come up with this? Where are the "shims" for the wheel speed sensor? There are none. It sits in a predetermined hole and is fastened down with a small bolt. Aftermarket axles maybe, but not stock axles.


Back to the question- have you checked your brakes and calipers? The sensor may have been giving you a warning that something wasn't right and now that it isn't right it's coming on hard with the feedback.

I had this same issue, took it to the dealership and their "fix" was putting spacers on the bolt.
