Default ABS sensors for CRV

My 97 CR-V ABS light is on. The dealer says both front wheel sensors need
to be changed for a price tag of $450 CDN. I inspected both sensors for any
visual damage or dirt and both are in good condition. I measured the
resistance of the
driver side sensor and it showed 900 ohm which means it is not shorted. I
could
not access the passenger side plug.

Does anyone know what are the values for resistance and AC voltage to be
expected from the sensors for this vehicle. Can anyone here suggest non
OEM ABS sensors that I can replace the existing ones with if need to be ?

Thanks.

What happens if you do not replace the sensors, other than you will not have
the ABS function?

Cynthia,

Biggest question is: What is the original symptom that prompted the
dealer to search this out????

900 Ohms sounds right, If you're getting false ABS light, have you tried
listening to see if the pump is running too long, or make absolutely
sure your four tires are identical for size / tread / pressure? Does it
only happen after you drive 50 feet, or before you start rolling?

Do you get ugly noises doing a tight U-turn at low speed, in a paved
parking lot? What's your mileage?

Remove the underscores in my address if you want connect. I'm in western
canada. We have a '98.

Nothing happens really just an annoyance to see the ABS light on all the
time.
This is my wife's car. I have a 92 Accord without ABS and never felt the
need
for it.

The failure is usualy due to a crack in the sender housing and is not always
seen when testing resistence unless you load it.(heat from a hair dryer or
ice)
