May have to have it scanned to know the issue,more than likely a bad sensor ,if it is driving normal.

i did and it came up saying the abs sensor, so they replaced it, but the lights are both still blinking...what else should they try?

T_S_T is dead on. If the lights are still on and they replace the parts, and cleared the codes, it's probably another wheel sensor detecting an issue. I had to replace both my front tone rings on my Tribute within a year of each other. They rust and split open.


Left front wheel sensor is not communicating with the transfer case. Abs is working but it's not working from the abs unit to the transfer case..what now?

Is the abs ring on the axle. I had the same problem. It cost 14 dollars and it takes 2-5 hrs for someone inexperienced to do it. Just like me. Lol
