1996 850R Code for Right Rear Wheel Sensor

Post by wackenhut »

I am getting a code for the Right Rear Wheel Sensor. The traction control light comes on and I get a pulsation occasionally when I am braking while driving. What is involved in replacing this sensor? Is this what is causing the pulsation?

Thank You!

I had this problem 2x.

The first time I replaced the sensor and wiring all the
Way up to the trunk by removing the wire pins
From the yellow harness.

The 2nd time I spliced the sensor in by soldering the
Wires and heat shrinking them. I used ebay sensors because they are ridiculously expensive and any sensor
Will work fine
