advance auto in my area has a abs code reader and read mine for free .just call around the local parts stores and see who has one .
the most common one that goes bad is in the rear differential.

+1 on this. Find a place that can read ABS codes that will telll you which part needs replacing.

Does your ABS light stay on but flashes 6-9 times every so often? Folks - forget all the codes and "cleaning" or changing EACH wheel sensors - Many dealers will HOSE you on this simple fix!!! Their is a speed sensor switch on the rear diff which is not easy to get too that needs to be changed out. On my 2004 Limited I found that by allowing my rear wheels to drop when jacked up (on sides) gave me much more room to work and take out one ( I think 8 or 10 mm bolt) and lightly pry the old sensor off. Having the new part helps you see the part you need to change HOWEVER this is the only thing on top (left side from rear on mine) to change. Total job is less than 30 minutes! A lift will make it go even faster. I think the part was less than $50.

My ABS light has been going on and off? Does that means its more of a dirt thing or a bad sensor thing?
Thanks!

2002 Explorer XLT over here. I just changed out my rear ABS sensor this morning & the light is still on. I also changed both my front hubs few months ago.
What else is recommended?
I'm thinking ofor disconnecting the battery for a few hours, maybe the computer needs to reset itself?
