Default Antilock Light

A couple weeks ago I hit a snow drift (drift, not bank) with my car. As soon as I hit it, the anti lock light came on and has been on ever since. I figured i would leave it to see if it goes out like it has before - but it'* still there

Anyone have any ideas? Should I just leave it? Don't really feel like paying $60 to get it hooked up to the computer...especially when I have just paid $260 for tie rods, parts, and alignment (couldn't get at the tie rods myself )

Considering the way it happened, it'* most likely a wheel speed sensor. I'd check the wiring. It'* possible a chunk of ice could have done some damage. Probably one of the fronts, and I'm betting passenger side? You can get in there with a volt meter and check the resistance of the sensor, and compare it to the other side. It might be just disconnected, but it'* possible you took some damage to the harness.

Bill:

Murdock wants to know....
what readings am I suppose to be gettin or lookin for to check the speed sensor ABS module at the 4 wheels?
what voltage?
what ohms / resistance am I expecting to see from the sensor to find out if the sensor is reading right and not shot?
and where are they located to the wheel?
front top ?? side ?

I left my book at work like a dumbass, but I don't remember if it details this anyway. I'd just compare the right front to the left front. If you know which side took the snow drift, and they read differently, you know what to do. The problem is that without the special tools, we can't swap our own sensors. It'* a hub/bearing assembly.

I'm still betting it'* something minor, though.
