The very first thing i did was take the wiring harness apart and look for cut burnt or broken wires one wire at a time i checked from one end to the other for contiuity and had it,I checked for inline fuses.This i done on all the wires that run across the radiator support and then brake out and go all over.The abs plug i unplugged and checked from the inside of it to the end of each wire for contiuity.I unrapped all the wires and ran them down and i could not find a problem there,I did this before i ever contacted you.The plug in on the abs seems to slide over the pins real easy so i tightened up the female plugs and put a thin amount of electrical grease on them and plugged it back in and slid the grey plastic lock back and checked it still the same problem.So far i have spent for a real amount of time maybe 200 hours working on this problem.I am also a decent mechanic but this is out of my league thats why i contacted you.What do you think the problem is in your mind?? Thankyou!!
"YES SIR SGT. I WILL GET RIGHT ON IT AND TRY TO LOCATE ONE SIR.and i will report back to you when i finish SIR!! Thankyou ps: between me and you i hope this works.
I have the brake warning light ON on the dash, and the ABS light does not work at all, even when I switch to ignite. I also have noticed that the ABS is not working in hard braking.
