How to tell which abs sensor is bad?

Replace them all?

My abs light comes on randomly and doesn't go out.
Was told in another thread that it is "a" sensor that's gone bad, but which one? Is there a way to tell?

im pretty sure it thoughs a code when the abs light comes on. when it does go the autozone and they can read the code for free, then look it up the code. that should tell you which one it is. At least thats how i did it with a explorer that i worked on last week.

I'll do that. I think it's the rear cause I was slowing to a stop and 1 or both rear tires were sliding (damn gm brakes) all the way to the full stop and the abs never kicked in.

Another question.....why do the rear brakes lock up???
Small list of cars that do it that I have.
95 s10 blazer
84 monte carlo ss
1979 scottsdale 3/4ton 2wd
95 s10 truck (mine)

All of them have el-cheap'o drum brakes, but they all suck ass. they slide everywhere.
What is the deal with this? I'd love to know
