ABS sensor

I recently replaced the front wheel bearings on my van. The problem is the ABS sensor that comes with the bearing, does not plug into the van. I am trying to find the right sensor that will plug into a 2006 Ford front wheel bearing and plug into a 2000 E-350 on the other end.

I'm assuming it is 4X4 with a Dana 60 out of a 2005 on up F250/350 and you replace the Unit Bearings. Who did the conversion in the first place? Contact them to see what they used or reuse the old ones.

Confirm what you have... and we might have some answers.

So the van is a 2000 E-350 and the front axle is a Dana 60 off of a 2006 F-350. Salem Kroger did the conversion. I emailed Craig at Whitefeather conversions since he used to either work for or own Salem Kroger. He got back to me right away. There is no ABS sensor that is compatible in this situation. I have to splice the ABS sensor that plugs into the 2006 wheel bearing assemble together with the ABS sensor that plugs into a 2000 Ford Econoline van. I would have just reused the old sensors that were made for the van, but they were melted out due to overheating of the brakes. Knowing this, I will put a heat resistant plastic sleave over the wires to prevent this from happening in the future. Hopefully this post will help anyone who comes across this problem in the future.

This is a pretty common problem with unfitting our vans to 4X4, esp if you do any front end brake work or rotor upgrade, I've done both. My ABS sensor light has been on since I swapped over to Dynatrac's free spin hub kit and put on frozen rotors, we tried several sets of sensors thinking they might have been bad, no go, Dynatrac had no solutions either. I suspect it has something to do with the tone rings not being compatible between the pickups and vans. A piece of electrical tape on the clear plastic covering the ABS dash light works pretty good at making you forget your ABS is no longer functional.....for maybe a moment

still frustrated

So I bought ABS sensors to plug into my 2000 E350 van. I spliced them together with the sensor that fits the 2006 F350 front end. I turned the van on and the ABS light went out. I was initially pretty excited about this, but then after driving the van for a few minutes, the ABS light and the Brake light both came on. I feel like I've hit a dead end. During the splicing process, I connected black to black and white to brown wires. There was no white wire on the sensor for the E350, just black and brown so it seemed logical to splice the white to the brown. I used crimp connects to connect the wires and wrapped them with electrical tape. I noticed that the original sensors that were spliced by Salem Kroger were soldered together, but I am terrible at soldering. I am not sure if this is what makes the difference or not. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you.
