I now have a code for "right rear wheel sensor" in VIDA, which I pulled as soon as I stopped the car. The right rear was smoking a bit and there is heavy black grease/oil all over the wheel.

Did I have a catastrophic bearing failure or did something else happen?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post some pics?

Do any of the pics in this thread help? Pic of wheel speed sensor in post #3. How-to-Change-rear-wheel-bearing-(hub)-&-wheel-speed-sensor-tons-of-photos
I'll try to get some later, I drove it back home and took my Wrangler to work. Thanks for the post, that is rather informative!

Maybe the CV axle? would explain the grease. ABS sensor is in the housing. Something might have damaged it.

Are the ABS sensor and wheel sensor the same thing? The specific code is BCM-0041. One of the "possible sources" listed is "hub vibrations or play in the wheel bearings."

Sounds like you may have run the bad bearing so hard that you melted/destroyed the sensor and possibly even the CV boot too if its the source of the grease instead of the wheel bearing.

Good example of why you should have fixed it when it started grumbling instead of waiting long enough to spend even more for more parts now that its grenaded on you.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the terms are synonymous. The ABS system detects wheel rotation through the sensor which dictates the use of ABS/Traction control systems. ABS sensor/wheel speed sensor located in the hub assembly would mean the same thing to me. *shrug*

Sorry to hear about troubles you are having. Let us know!

That is correct, and the sensor picks up on a magnetic ring that rides on the back of the bearing, so chances are high its been melted or wiped by the bad wheel bearing, unless its just the magnetic ring that's failed.

That ring is usually metal, so if you melted it ye gads. Take pics when you get in there.
