Does anyone know what to look for in regards to the wheel sensors? what to look for if they are bad etc?

It is a good chance you have a bad sensor. One way is to test them with a multimeter set to ohms and going to the two wires on the hub or bearing side. It'* a bit of a pain to hold the connector and test leads while trying to read the meter, but possible.

Look for one to be different than the rest.

Also check for corrosion on the plugs

I plan on tackling my wheel sensor problem today when i take off the snow tires. Basically, there will be two metal pieces in the connector, and i'm checking the resistance btw them?
Any one that is different then the rest is prob the bad one?
Does anyone have pics of this?

Thanks for your help!
Dave
