I'm new to the site. I have a 07 civic ex and I changed the front knuckle on the car after a real bad pot hole incident my wife had. The abs light was off and my brakes were working fine before I started the work. Now when I finished and reinstalled the knuckle and the accessories the abs light stays on. Is there any way to reset it or does anyone know of what the problem could be?
That is correct. Everything was fine before the work was done. What the connection has a hole next to the sensor where the bolt goes in and screws to the knuckle. The actual sensor goes through the knuckle. I don't see any disconnect of any type by the wheel.
This is what I did last night. I lifted the front tire and I located a disconnect on the inside of the fender and unplugged and plugged it back in. With the car on and in neutral I turned the wheel by hand to see if it would check for pulse. Also I disconnected the battery and reconnected it after a few minutes and the light is still on. I also changed the wheel bearing out and I wonder if that has something to do with it. Maybe it is not in the correct clearance from the sensor...
Hey guys! Sorry I didn't get back to site sooner. This is what happened, apparently when I changed the knuckle and installed a new wheel bearing, I installed the wheel bearing backwards. The wheel bearing has a side that is metal and that makes contact with the ABS sensor. The other side I believe has a rubber or plastic ring and that prevented the reading. Also the ABS sensor has a metal ring and was missing(never saw the ring when I removed the sensor, so the dealer says) and it created rust and that made the sensor go bad. I took it to the dealer and it cost around 600 dollars to turn of the light.. Yeah a little ridiculous if you ask me... But all in all if you are going to replace the wheel bearing make sure it goes in the correct way.
