ESP/ABS failure

2013 Airstream currently in shop for 3rd ABS failure. Failed left front then failed left rear wheel sensor. Awaiting which sensor has failed this time. All in last 1-2 yrs. Each time had to drive 3-4 hundred miles with no cruise. A real bummer. Any similar experiences out there?

Did they say if it was the sensor or the connector?

Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.

PM me for sale info on my 2011. SOLD!

For ABS sensor clarification, I am not talking about tire pressure sensors. These are wheel speed sensors affecting cruise control function and braking. Not necessarily flat out emergency having to be towed to nearest dealer,etc. Just urgent need for repair. 3rd time and very annoying.60 miles one way to dealer. I am awaiting warranty info and exact wheel involved this time.

Not that I have a sprinter, but the sensors have pig tails that need to be routed away from the brake heat shields. This routing is important to keep the wires from melting and shorting the sensor.
