error P0501 after flat tire
Yup, the subject line is pretty descriptive. I'm getting the Check Engine and the ABS warning lights and the ABS system is not activating (which is amusing in Edmonton in January. Good thing I know how to drive!).
The lights came on shortly after getting a flat repaired. It didn't come on when I was driving on the doughnut, but did shortly after the shop repaired the tire and put the wheel back on. Could they have damaged the sensor? According to kiatechinfo.com, it's the front right sensor, but the front left wheel was repaired. I have seen a similar thread for other vehicles where the error code says front right, but someone on the forum insists it's rear left (07 sportage, IIRC).
My speedo still works, but I assume that's a function of the transmission speed sensor, yes?
Anyway, all of my research seems to point to a wheel speed sensor... am I on the right track?
 I used a bluetooth OBD-II scanner and Torque for Android to get the error number.
