Default Abs issues

ok i have an 01 se

is it just my car or are they all prone to have abs problems constantly.....

the p/o was my uncle and he was always working on the abs...well the plugs for the wheel speed sensors...it seems either the sensors or the plugs keep going bad within 6 moths.

so tomorrow im going to test every wheel speed sensor before and after the plug to see if any of them have a bad connection. if not i donot know what could be wrong other than the abs computer.

the front two have been replaces too manny times to count or keep track some done by the dealership some by garages. only to find out way later that its the plugs corroding.

so im not sure i have like 3 sets of front wss that were taken off the car. im going to test those tomorrow also to see which are good.

some have green paint on them some have white and some have blue so i dont have a clue which are oem... is there a difference?
