Asked by Apr 08, 2017 at 11:10 AM about the 2012 Kia Sorento SX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2012 Kia sorento SX and has ABS/esc/DBC indicator light is on all the time. I replace front left wheel speed sensor but it did not work. What is a resistance of this good working sensor, the one I got shows more than 10Mohm means it is open, can you tell me what is resistance of new sensor

No sure, I've checked many but all seem different. But the problem may be the connector and the wires running up from the connector are bad. Wiring in a new connector may be the solution. Check continuity from the connector and up each wire. Corrosion likes to build up the wire. Resistance on the wire should be 0.000Ω,

I had three lights on for abs, traction, researched diagnostic tools came across TOPDON elite, caught it on a flash sale too, it quickly told me which wheel sensor (drivers rear) was bad ordered sensor with bearings. Install took 1/2 hour. Code was gone when car started. Tools 14mm socket, (21mm for wheel) breaker bar (cause i'm 65) phillips screw driver, and of course jack & jack stand removed wheel , brakes, rotor then hub as a note I am not and was not a mechanic
