When evaluating the cost of wheel speed sensor replacement, you may want to consider:
It’s important to be in tune with your wheel speed sensor options and how the type of shop will affect the pricing they offer to you. Dealerships will always be the most expensive option for wheel speed sensor replacement. Traditional brick and mortar repair shops will typically provide more affordable brake repair prices than the dealership. However, mobile brake repair services, like NuBrakes, usually provide the best prices because they have significantly less operational overhead… And not to mention, a much more convenient experience… A true win-win.
Still have questions about wheel speed sensor replacements? We're here to help.
Your wheel speed sensor is located in each wheel hub on your vehicle. Each speed sensor is mounted near your brake calipers to monitor how fast your wheels are turning. It sends continuous information to your ABS (anti-locking braking system) if your wheels are moving faster or slower than the others. Having said that, your wheel speed sensor plays an important role as your ABS relies on it.
Here are some signs that suggest you need a wheel speed sensor:
1. Your ABS warning light is on.
2. Anti Lock Brakes have stopped working.
3. Your vehicle’s brake is difficult to control.
4. Your speedometer doesn’t work.
5. Stability and Traction control issues
A professional mechanic wouldn’t suggest driving a vehicle with a bad wheel speed sensor. There would be some times that you’ll be able to drive like normal but it is always advisable to have it checked and replaced. Remember that your ABS relies on it.
As part of your vehicle’s safety features, your wheel speed sensor plays an important role which helps your ABS to work.
Replacing your wheel speed sensor may vary. Some may experience having a bad wheel speed sensor more often than others. If you experience any of the signs that recommend having a replacement, then you likely should do so.
We recommend having a professional mechanic replace your wheel speed sensor for you to be confident that the replacement was done right. But in case you’d like to do it yourself, you can follow the steps below:
1. Use a jack to lift your car.
2. You might need to remove the brake pads and rotors to see the sensors clearly.
3. Remove the clips that hold the sensor wiring.
4. Unplug the wires to be completely removed.
5. Install your new wheel speed sensor and brake parts.
6. Reinstall your wheels.
7. Do a test drive.
