Did you just use a diyer scan tool to check for codes?If so they only read engine and transmission codes not abs or traction control codes.

I was just saying not every problem is cookie cutter fixes and problems just because yours had the problem doesn't mean there's is. But thanks for the tip though could help other users in the future. Speed sensors go bad etc. Also if you use a diyer scan tool you won't see any codes. To read the abs codes you would need a professional scan tool. The abs light comes on when it detects a failure then sets a code in the abs computer and disable the abs system.

Yes your correct in saying just because yours had the problem doesn't mean there's is and I should of worded it better, and as far as the abs codes you would need a professional scan tool that is also correct but I was mainly trying to say that to check the wiring is cheaper and easier than opting out for the latter.I try and word diffrently.
