It could be a problem with the ABS or it could be a faulty sensor in any of the wheels. Look at the wires and see if any of them are broken.

10-4 but is the sensor they're talking about inside the rear differential or outside of it?

I'm not sure about the backs, but the fronts go right off the hubs and plug in up under the front of the wheel well.

What he said. An easy fix. I found it's easier if you lower your spare tire to give better access. Lots of theeads in the archives on how to do it.

F85Z9E731AB is the part# I used last summer.
