    needed to do gearbox bearings and clutch,drivers side driveshaft fix solid in hub. ABS light working ok before started work.replace driveshaft and hub. abs light still working OK. noisey bearing so replace bearing with brown seal towards sensor,brown seal as a magnet inside bearing. replace everything, abs light went off,until i applied brakes.brakes went hard and noisy,abs light stay on .,brakes returned to normal operation.(abs disengaged ). had honda check abs faults sensor not reading when wheels are turning. Sent off for another sensor,just incase i damage previous sensor when doing bearings. install new sensor.abs light went off when moving off.applied little pressure to brakes ,Brakes pedal hard to brake,noisey,just like before, then abs light came on and back to normal braking without abs system working. back to square again. got four new tyres fitted all around.all pressure correct.the drive shaft did come from 2008 Jazz,not 2002.but i do not believe they alter the size of the outet drive shaft,causing sensor to rub against,unless you know different. could the bearing be faulty,not honda make.what else could i try.

    You need to get the car connected to a Honda HDS to read the error code. It may just need calibration from HDS.

    That would equate to a faulty sensor on the right wheel.

    [replace the sensor with a secondhand sensor that worked also replace with a new sensor,all resulted in the same result. first put in ABS light went off.1st check ok. driving car applied brake,hard pedal vibration ABS light on and stay on.ABS was working perfectly before removing bearing.

    Maybe you've damaged the reluctor ring ? Or perhaps your drive shaft hasn't been seated correctly ?

    honda Jazz do not have a reluctor ring attach to the drive shaft.it has a ferromagnet ring built into the active wheel bearing oil seals.

    - - - Updated - - -

    chinese import bearing had a defective magnet oil seal.replace with a pwk0545 bearing, and the ABS light is out.hooray.
