OK it could be the ABS controller is different then. I know in '96 they used Bosch, I think they used a different brand in '95.

It'* usually a WSS or PMV. WSS'* have to be replaced with the entire hub assembly.

Only the dealer can retrieve TC or ABS codes.
Or any shop with a snap on tech II scanner.

92-95 used 2 different versions of Teves instead of Bosch.

Both the Teves and Bosch systems are very reliable for ABS and TC. For the most part, it'* the main 'brain' made by them, and that'* the least likely part to fail.

It'* typically a WSS (hub/bearing assembly) or the PMV that fail.
