Anybody ever replaced a wheel speed sensor? I believe that is my problem here. I'd rather just replace it myself if its not too difficult than pay Ford an outrageous amount of money.

This may not be any help to you. But I've done them on 07-14 GM trucks. They are basically a simple sensor threaded into the wheel hub on those. Maybe ford is the same. On GM you gotta strip down past the rotors to make it easy.

Good luck.

changed my right rear one. Plug and play. Unbolt from wheel, follow wires up to a harness, unplug old one, plug new one in and tuck the wires back in. 10 minutes max.

Wheel speed sensors on pretty much all Ford's are very easy unless corroded to the knuckle, usually 1 bolt and unplug connector but before you start throwing parts at it, it would be wise to check the master cylinder fluid level as well as all your brake lights then have the codes pulled to pinpoint the cause.

Much less expensive.

Yea from what I've seen on Youtube is looks to be fairly simple.

I'll check the fluid. My brake lights work fine but I do have Anzo LED tail lights that are a recent mod, but I've had them for 2 or 3 weeks before I started getting the check brake and ABS light. Not sure if that could possibly be an issue or just a coincidence in close timing.

Scan for codes to find out which sensor is bad.
