ABS error code help
So, I was able to get my ABS fault code scanned at a local shop, which made my day. I had feared that a trip to the dealer was in my future, but was pleased when they found a code for me.
Turns out my right front WSS is reading an open. After reading thru the archive posts, it mentioned that occasionally just messing with the connector can sometimes solve the sensor reading. I have suffered a couple serpentine belt failures with this car, and belt scraps wacking the wiring was mentioned as a possible culprit in one of the posts. I've also had my harmonic balancer pulley replaced, and the very first time I saw the fault lights on the dash was not too long after that. Could be coincidence, though.
I'd love to verify that I do indeed NEED a new hub and sensor, before turning a shop loose replacing anything, especially given the part cost, and need for an alignment probably afterwards.
So, what can I try on my own at home first? I can hopefully reach the plug inside the frame rail to attempt to clean, grease and reconnect the wires & plug. Anything else that you can suggest to verify the need for a hub and sensor? I'm looking at strut replacement soon as well, and would like to make sure I spend my money wisely regarding this matter. Thanks for any guidance you can share!
