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.

This item fit perfectly and fixed the fault. I thought this item was well made and looked of better quality than the Dorman. Many like items out there that I am sure would do the job but the better quality is worth the minimal price difference

      Comments about BWD ABS 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.

          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.

            • Q:

              Is there a way to check to find which one is bad other than replacing all of them?
              Asked on 3/19/2015 by Chuck from Lexington,SC

              1 answer

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Hi Chuck, glad to help you! You can test a wheel speed sensor by using a ohmmeter. Instructions to test speed sensor: Look in your car manual to see what the resistance is on tour Anti-locking Breaking System (ABS) sensor. It is 50 ohms on most cars. If you have ABS on the front wheels only you will be checking the sensors for the front wheels only. If you have ABS on all four wheels you will be doing this for all four wheels. Consulting the manual will tell you which arrangement you have. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the wheel and lower it each time. The brake light does not indicate which sensor is causing the problem. Do not stop checking if you find a bad one--you might as well check them all. Jack up the wheel you are checking and take off the wheel. The ABS sensor is a little canister with a wire coming out of it. Disconnect the wire and unscrew the canister. You can clean it off with a rag with a little brake cleaner fluid. If you are using a multimeter, you should select the range that will put the needle (for the projected reading) in the middle of the scale. If the range setting is too low, the meter will peg for most readings, and if the range setting is too high the needle will barely move for a correct reading. Zero out the ohmmeter. This means holding the meter leads firmly together with one hand and turning the zero adjust knob until the meter reads exactly zero. Now put the leads on the pins of the ABS sensor and read the resistance. It should be very close (within 10 percent) to the value given in the manual--if not, it is bad and should be replaced.

                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.

                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.
