    It it need replacing there would be code generated and the ABS Inop light would come on, Like any part of car they wear and are exposed to pretty much everything the wheel is.

    It could be a bad connection, dirty or simply out right failed.

    Remember to disconnect your battery, and then disconnect the ABS sensor Prior to cleaning.
    DONT blow air across the sensor as this will send a high voltage signal to your PCM and burn it out.
    Try cleaning it first, and if you still get a code, I'd replace it.
