    It Works

    Installed this in a 2000 Ranger. ABS light is now off and speedo is working again. New sensor measured 1.9k ohms and from my research it should be within 0.8 - 1.4k ohms....Read complete review

    Installed this in a 2000 Ranger. ABS light is now off and speedo is working again. New sensor measured 1.9k ohms and from my research it should be within 0.8 - 1.4k ohms. Seems to be working fine though. Old one was around 10M ohms so it was definitely shot.

    May not be the best quality but its a good $ for what you get.

    I bought this to replace the ABS sensor in the rear differential on my 2002 Ford Explorer XLT (4-door, 4WD, 4.0 V6) but it does not fit. Advance Auto Parts website says this is an exact fit for my vehicle. That is incorrect. Just an FYI for anyone else who was thinking of buying this part for the same vehicle.

      Product looked nice but wouldn't fit correctly because of an oversized/loose fitting o-ring. I had to locate my own to get out of a weekend jam.

      Comments about BWD ABS Wheel Speed Sensor:

      Bought as a replacement for the oem sensor on my daily driver Ford Ranger. Haven't had any issues with the sensor itself, but did have an issue forming a tight seal with the o-ring provided. I ended up buying a seperate o-ring which did the trick. All in all, works as advertised and trust the Borg-Warner brand.

          Replacement part was designed a little different but still worked and system works fine now. My ABS warning light was coming on intermittently. I had trouble determining the exact cause so I replaced this part at the same time as the ABS control module. Replacing both fixed my problem for probably half the price of taking it to the dealer for evaluation and repair. Intallation was easy.

            Comments about BWD ABS Wheel Speed Sensor:

            If you have an older F150 or Ford Explorer with an abs lamp on, 95% of the time it is because of this sensor. It is cheap and easy enough to just throw one on to see if it fixes the problem. I did not even bother with reading the trouble code on my truck.

            If you have trouble getting the old one out do not pry on it. Twist is back and fourth a few times to loosen it up using the tab for the securing bolt. If you pry on it and break the old one then they are a pain to replace, especially if pieces of the old one fall inside the differential housing. All you need is a 3/8 wrench and 10 minutes if that.

              Called the local Ford dealer first about this part. Quoted [$], ouch! Found what I needed at Advance's website, paid online then called the store to confirm they received payment and had the part waiting for me. Save me alot of grief knowing all I had to do was drive to the store and pick it up. No more, "sorry, out of stock. Try driving to our other store across town." I walked in the door, the man handed the part and reciept to me and I was ready to go home for the install. The part itself installed just fine and made my truck's idiot light go out. Mission accomplished.

                      Instructions
                      Things You'll Need: Electrical grease, New ABS wheel sensor and O-ring, Socket wrench set, Torque wrench.
                      1. Determine which ABS wheel sensor your Ford Explorer will need. You'll want to be sure the new wheel sensor is compatible with your make and model of Explorer. All versions of the Explorer have an ABS. 2. Position the vehicle on a hoist and place it in neutral gear. Remove the front brake disc with a socket wrench when replacing wheel speed sensors on the front wheels. Disconnect the wheel speed sensor electrical connector. Remove the three harness retainers and both pin-type retainers for front wheel speed sensors. 3. Unfasten the mounting bolt for the wheel speed sensor with a socket wrench so you can remove the wheel speed sensor and wiring harness as an assembly. 4. Apply electrical grease to the wheel speed sensor connector terminals before installing the new wheel speed sensor and O-ring. Use a torque wrench to tighten the mounting bolt for the front wheel speed sensor to 115 in. lbs. Torque the mounting bolt for the rear wheel speed sensor to 20 ft. lbs. 5. Connect the harness retainers and pin-type retainers for front wheel speed sensors. Plug in the electrical connector and install the front brake disc for front wheel speed sensors with a socket wrench. Lower the vehicle.

                      It could be a number of things causing this. Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.

                      The sensor for the rear wheels is located on the brake shoe backing plate if you have drum brakes on the rear. The front brake sensor is located next to the caliper. The same if you have rear disc brakes. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                      Rear diff. Jack up rear end, and you will see the wire and sensor that is plugged into the pumpkin area. 1 screw holds it in, just unplug, replace. Takes about 2 minutes once jacked up. A lot of times they get dirty or broken wire.Yes, this will set the ABS light off.
