Both Rear ABS Sensors Failed?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Had my ABS light come up on my 1997 MB3 the other day. Having followed the guide to read fault codes, I get code 16 (RL) and 17 (RR). Is it normal for both rears to go at the same time? To me, it seems coincidental that both rear sensors would go simultaneously - so before I go spending £££ on new sensors, does anyone have any recommendations for what could cause both rears to show as faulty (eg linked wiring / controller) and if so how I could check it?

 Thanks for any help

It's usually the wires that go. 

Replace both of those first. 

I got mine from breakers (namely @10000rpm) on here, for much less than a new set would cost you.
