Q: Possible replacement parts for anti-lock brakes - 1991 Lincoln Mark VII

asked by on September 05, 2016

I took my car into the auto repair shop because the anti-lock brakes stopped working. They repaired the anti-lock brakes and the broken parking brake cable. The part that was broken was the rear wheel sensor. Neither the after market vendor, nor the manufacturer have a replacement part. Thus, I no longer have the benefits of anti-lock brakes. Would you know how I can get the part to replace the broken part?
