Will this work on my vehicle?

If you have ABS, then the ABS sensors can be utilized.  If your vehicle does not have ABS but is a model which supports ABS, then only the wheel speed sensors need to be installed.  If you don't have ABS and no factory vehicle has wheel speed sensors, then you will need to add your own ABS wheel speed sensors.

 

Will this work on both front and rear wheel drive vehicles?

Yes, the principle behind the wheel slip calculation is exactly the same for front and rear wheel drive.

 

Does the Traction Control affect the ABS operation?

The Traction Control module has high impedance capacitively coupled wheel speed inputs which do not alter the signal to the ABS computer.  However, if the ABS error light illuminates, or any the ABS operation changes in any way, the vehicle should not be driven until the issue is identified and fixed.

 

Do I need an ABS computer, or just the wheel speed sensors?

Only the wheel speed sensors.

 

Do I need four wheel speed sensors?

Traction control will work with just one front and one rear speed sensor, but operation is better with four wheel speed sensors.

 

Can I use magnetic pickups on the axles rather than ABS sensors?

Yes, but the ABS sensors have about 10 times are many teeth and the traction control operation is much more reliable.

 

Will hall effect sensors work?

Yes, tie the negative side of the wheel speed sensor input to ground.

 

My car lifts one rear (FWD) / front (RWD) wheel off the ground when cornering. Will the traction control cope with this?

Yes, just set the speed determination method that that axle to 'fastest wheel'.

 

My car lifts more than one wheel off the ground when cornering. Will the traction control cope with this?

Probably not, but you have bigger problems to attend to.
