In this guide, you will find instruction on how to change ABS wheel speed sensor on ACURA vehicles. Changing the ABS sensor is a relatively easy task that you can perform yourself at home.
The most common symptom of a bad ACURA wheel speed sensor is the ABS light comes on and won't turn off. Other symptoms you can potentially experience due to a bad ABS sensor include:
- Wheels lock up when braking,
- Vehicle skidding or taking longer to stop,
- Vehicle goes into limp mode,
- Automatic transmission stuck in gear,
- Traction or stability control light on
What you will need
Park your ACURA and ensure the parking brakes are set.
Loosen the lug nuts and safely jack up the vehicle.
Here is the location of ACURA wheel speed sensor.
Track the wire to the wheel well and disconnect the electrical connector.
Remove the 10mm bolt that secures the wheel ABS sensor to the wheel hub. It may be difficult to remove the sensor if there is rust. Spray penetrating oil and allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes.
Install the new sensor and fasten the bolt to 8 ft.lbs or 10 Nm. Connect the wire harness. Install the wheel. Torque the lug nuts to specification. Take your ACURA model for a spin and make sure the ABS is off.
