      I have an 04 sport trac and the ABS light came on a month or so ago. I read that the rear sensor was the most likely culprit, so I replaced it. No luck. I'm now trying to check the front sensors, but can't find them. Can someone please help. I took the driver side tire off, but I don't see a sensor similar to the one on the back. Do I need to take anything else off?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!

      Hello and welcome!

      The front sensors are completely different on 4x2's from 4x4's. Which is your?????

      Sorry...It's a 4x4. The rear sensor was easy enough and I'm hoping finding and fixing the front ones are simple as well.
      I'm about a mile from the home depot on wendover and independence in Charlotte.
      Thanks!

      Mines done that to me twice. I ended up replacing the wheel hubs and wheel bearing to get the ABS light to go off

      I also have a 2004 Spot Trac 4x4 and have just noticed in the last couple of days that my brakes became real "soft and spongey" (replaced the pads & rotors last month). Today on my way to work the ABS light came on. When I got to work I turned the truck off and then restarted it and the light was gone but the brakes are still "soft". Could this also be a sensor? If yes... can you give me some info. on how to replace this. I've never done anyhting with ABS parts.

      Thanks!
