Default ABS Light on

I have an 1995 Australian build Camry "great car" A neighbour and I
have just replaced the front struts but now the ABS warning light on
the dashboard is "on " all the time I have carefully retraced my
steps and can see nothing wrong. Does anyone have an idea what we may
have overlooked?

..Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank You

Default Re: ABS Light on

You can use the free repair guide on Autozone.com (with registration)
to extra the ABS code. It'll tell you if it's an ABS sensor or
something else.

My guess, especially after a strut replacement, is that you probably
affected the wheel speed sensor in some way. (for example, was it
plugged back in?etc etc) And that it's not getting the pulse signal
from the rotations. Check that, and use a toothbrush to clean of
magnetic particles (brake dust) on the sensor.

In the US there are parts stores that will read the codes out for
free. Maybe you have them too there.
