Question ABS Sensor thingy at R/H rear axel

Guys,

I was changing the rear disc on the R/H side of the car yesterday. Noticed after removing the disc there was this sensor type plug that looks like a rubber spark insert mounted to the axel. It sort of points directly to the axel as though it measures something. Anyways seems its a little broken and bent. To my supprise when i start the car now the 'Check ABS light' appears and stays on constantly. Im pretty sure that i might have recked something with this sensor as the light has never came on before. When the light is on im think the ABS system doesnt function. Does anyone know what this sensor is and called?
Im gonna have to replace it as im sure its why the light has come on now

The sensor is known as a wheel speed sensor - in this case an inductive one.

Part number in your case is ED 2C190 A and they aren't cheap at around $290.

Would this contribute to the ABS light appearing. What role does this sensor play?

If it is damaged I have no doubt it would probably be the cause of the warning light.

Read this TechBrief on ford-tech.com for an explanation of what it does. While this article refers to traction control the principles of operation are the same.

Hi there;
I read your post- and I had a similar problem.. it was my rear ABS Sensor. I am told the sensor is only $35 at the dealership- ;-) Hope this helps!!
