95 explorer abs light

just finished replacing a hub bearing assembly & now i got the abs light on the instrument panel,hooked everything up correct,i read a thread regarding the same issue suggesting to disconnect the batt. for 10 min. that is should clear the codes but didn't have an update if that cleared the issue,just wondering if someone has some input on this!!!!!! thanks

well tried disconnecting the battery for 10 min. but i still have the abs light,went to the dealer to return a part & asked them about it & they told me it could be that the place i got the hub from probably gave me the wrong part!the new and old hub seemed to match!maybe i'll go to a shop to put a scanner!!!!!!!

Re: 95 explorer abs light

IF the ABS comes on right away it is likely either the sensor is bad or there is a broken wire. If the sensor or tone ring are too far away/dirty it would take some driving to set a cleared ABS light.

You can test the sensor easily with an ohmmeter. Assuming you get some value (I forget exactly but it's somewhere in the 100-1000 ohm range the sensor is likely good. You can slowly rotate the wheel with the meter connected and see if the value fluctuates. If this checks then there is most likely a wiring issue.
