Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

I don't think the sensors are the cause either. Rather the encoder rings. The vehicle has a sensor ring on each wheel (this is the ring on which the sensor points).

If one of the rings is damaged or heavily soiled, the wheel speed for the control unit is no longer even, but from the point of view of the control unit the wheel gets snowier sometimes slower.

Therefore the encoder rings have to be checked if they are damaged. If they are ok, simply clean them. Also clean the sensors quietly, because of the magnetism it can happen that dirt is deposited during the exchange of the BRemsen and influences the measuring result.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
