Abs sensor

Does anyone know what the ohms should be on a front abs sensor? My front left is bad and want to ohm it before I buy a new One.

3 months and no answer? Have the same dilemma. Sensor looks good, but shop told me left front is bad.
I already ordered new sensor for $29 from California seller. It better works.

I did some more searching and found household method that can test the sensor.
Hook up continuity meter (can be ohmmeter, bu it is not resistance you measure) and check if there is current going. Now take a blade of screwdriver or other steel piece and tap the tip of the sensor. The current flow should change with each tap.
When no current going, the sensor is bad.
