* * * O2 Sensor Replacement DIY * * *
"I came into this world covered in someone else's blood and screaming...I'm not afraid to leave it in the same way."
My sensor finally came arrived this evening. I unhooked my neg battery cable, installed the new speed sensor (took about 15 minutes total). Unfortunately, my ABS light is still on. I drove the truck about 15 minutes hoping the light would clear. I drove down a gravel road and occasionally would brake hard. I had my window down and noticed that my front tires would lock up but rears wouldnt. It's obvious the my ABS isn't working properly. I will try to get it hooked up to a computer again one day. Sucks that I just spent $200 on a sensor that I might not have needed to replace.
Well I bought and replaced the speed sensor for nothing. I took my truck to another local shop and had them hook a computer up to it. They couldn't even get their computer to throw a code. I came home and crawled under it and strarted traceing wires and looking closely at everything with a flashlight. I found a broken wire on the connector that is suppose to be bolted to the rear of the gas tank cover. Mine didn't have a nut on the bolt because the guy the replaced my fuel pump years ago failed to SECURELY fasten the connector bracket back once he reinstalled the gas tank. Years of bumpy roads caused the connector to move around, eventually enableing the wire to break.
I took it and showed the mechanic and we decided to just jump all 4 wires rather than replacing the whole wire assembly or attempting to rig broken wire back to the connector.
When I restarted the truck the ABS light was still on. I jumped 4 and 13, the light indicated code 33 again. I quickly tapped the brake pedal 8 times and the light started rapidly flashing. I pulled the jumper and it light went off and hasn't came back on.
So i have a perfectly good right rear speed sensor if anyone needs one.
