ABS light(can you clean the sensor) also ESP/bas

I broke my axle 2 days ago and had to take the abs sensor off to change the axle.. I was a little bit rough with the sensor and probably got it dirty!! So my ABS light is now on any one know if the sensor can be cleaned.

Also is that sensor correlated to the ESP/BAS light because its on as well. My steering was jacked to the right but I straightened it out!!! any help would be appreciated thanks!!

Yes, the computer uses the ABS sensors to help with ESP. I'm not sure about BAS. How were you rough with it?When you replace the axle, you don't have to take it completely out of the hole in the back of the assembly, just enough to get it out of the way. Try gently cleaning it with some water. It gets dirty anyways, but you might have gotten something on it. Make sure the wires are connected all the way too.

Have you straightened your steering wheel yet? If so, just unplug the negative cable for about 30 min, then after a few drives it will automatically go off. If you haven't straightened your steering wheel yet, Get under your JK, and look for your drag link. There is a collar with 2 bolts in it. Loosen them and turn the collar. You will be amazed how much a little turn on the collar will turn the steering wheel. Here is a picture. It is in the top left of the picture.

Of course, you mean top right?

had to remove the entire assembly I broke inner and outer shafts and the ujoint somehow pressed out the lower ball joint.... that being said i kinda bent the sensor pulling it out... Some one asked if the steering wheel is has been corrected and it has.. I already adjusted it looks to be lined up I havent drove it more than 5 minutes...so when I go to work tomorrow will see if it goes off that being the esp/bas light.... for the abs light I might need to clean or replace it.... Ive heard of extra brake wear and such ..whats everyone think on that it doesnt pull or drive erratic at all....

If the system notices that something's out of wack it should just ignore it. I know when my wheel wasn't centered and the ESP/BAS light came on SOLID it shut the systems off. It's only doing something when it's blinking.

The extra brake wear is on the rear pads and is from BAS. So, since it should be disabled, your brakes will last longer. That's a plus!

Jeepbronco, it took a couple of days before mine went off. I even work 20 miles from home. So take the negative off the battery, then drive it around for a few days before you start looking at something else.
