S-10 ABS Sensors

Can someone tell me where the ABS sensors are located on my 2001 S-10 extreme? Thanks.[&:]

RE: S-10 ABS Sensors

if u r refering 2 the wheel sensors, they should be located inside each wheel assembly. my '94 t-15 jimmy has each rear wheel sensor located inside the brake shoe area, reading the grooves on the inside edge of each axle,behind the hubs. the front sensors are directly on the wheel hub on the spindles, and read off similar grooves behind each wheel hub. my truck has a different style spindle since it's a 4x4, but i'm sure a 2wd has a very similar set up. why r u asking? having problems?

The two front ones are on the spindles and the rear one is just the vehicle speed sensor on the back of the transmission.

RE: S-10 ABS Sensors

sorry, but i failed 2 mention that my Jimmy is 4x4, and has the 4WAL system (big, ugly, expensive control box under the hood for the 4 wheel anti-lock). that's why i said the rear sensor's r on the end's of the axles.
not sure if this makes any difference on the location of the rear sensor's (i don't think it does), but my Jimmy is equiped with a 5 spd. trans.

The 3 sensor setup I mentioned in my post is still a 4-wheel anti-lock brake system.

RE: S-10 ABS Sensors

the 4 sensor setup i mentioned, controls each wheel independently from one another. i'm not saying the 3 sensor system is not a 4 wheel anti-lock system, but the 4 sensor system is a true 4 wheel independent anti-lock system. that is why i clarified that my truck has the 4WAL system, and that is why my sensor's r located @ each corner.
