Bad ABS sensor causes rear tires to wear prematurely
Asked Jan 12, 2012, 09:36 AM
Last summer I went through new rear tires in 5000 miles. No lite or codes came up. Dealer could not find problem. Tire manf. Replaced tires. After watching tires for three months it was determined that tires were still wearing too fast. Finally dealer checked again with ford and changed the ABS sensors in the rear and now all is well, susposedly. Evidently the bad ABS sensors were causing drag that caused the tires to wear prematurely. Funny the ABS lights never came on. Wondering if I can expect transmission trouble in the future because of this. Anyone ever heard of this before?
