tempermental hub? gearheads... (video included)
this weekend when i did my brakes, i examined my front driver hub and wss... that i thuoght was bad because it showed up non responsive on my tech2 scan..
well when i was down there, i noticed half of the plug end was worn off from rubbing on something, which i didnt notice when i connected it blinded by the wheel...
wss are not a closed circuit are they? billboost told me they throw out some sort of pulse to tell wheel speed... kinda like a bike speedo?
anyways.....i spliced in a wire between the connectors, so the connector wasnt even connected, but the current was... sorry no pics!
after taping it all up to keep it waterproof, i started the car and noticed all my dash warning lights were off... im thinking YES!!!!!! its fixed...
i back out of the driveway, and at the end of the driveway, dash dings, and they call come back..... on the test drive... they went off intermediately, and i slammed the brakes on and i had ABS!!!!!!!... then they dinged again and i had no ABS and all my lights...
my question is... the HUB'* and WSS'* cant be intermediate.. correct? its just the faulty jerry rigging right? so technically i should be able to get the correct connecter and clean it all up and have a fixed car instead of a used $50 hub
