ABS Light on After Wheel Is Turned

Well I put on some new wheels (18x9.5s) 2 weeks ago & now when i turn the wheel sometimes the abs light comes on, wondering why it comes on so i know where exactly to look when i start looking for the problem...

Re: ABS Light on After Wheel Is Turned

Make sure nothing is interfering or touching the ABS cable. Its possible that given the width of the wheel and its specific offset, that when the wheel is turned it is constricting the ABS cable and putting pressure on the sensor causing it to register a malfunction.

Re: ABS Light on After Wheel Is Turned

ABS cable is easy to spot. Take your wheel off and look at the wire/sensor plugged in through the knuckle right underneath where the axle enters the hub assembly. Check that wire for any kind of damage.

I just put everything back together on my car otherwise I'd just run outside and make a video to show you the ABS cable/sensor.

Maybe it's loose or possibly teeth on the axle are damaged. If not then the sensor may be on its way out.

Re: ABS Light on After Wheel Is Turned

the bigger wheels probably stripped the ABS wire, and now it shorts whenever you see the ABS light go on. (could be either side or BOTH)

could also be the actual ABS sensor
