Default Disable ABS on Torrent

The ABS module on my Torrent is kaput (according to 2 independent mechanics) and now every time I break at low speeds it makes a loud grinding noise and it sometimes skids an extra foot or tow until I fully press the pedal to the floor almost.

I'll be getting the module replaced sometime at the end of the month, but in the mean time is there a way to completely disable the ABS to avoid the noise and the skidding? I've been told that removing the ABS fuse would disable the ABS and temporarily solve my issue, but I have no idea where the fuse box is located.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Pulling the fuse will disable the ABS, as will going under the car and unplugging one of the wheel spin sensors. What year is this Torrent? I may be able to look it up in my manuals. But it should be labeled. I suspect it'* under the hood because it should be a larger fuse.

I would check to see if you have a maxifuse panel under the hood. There will be a label that tells you what each fuse is for.

I found the diagram for the fuse box and there are 2 ABS fuses, one is labeled ABS and the other ABS PWR should I pull both out?

Pull one and see what happens. If it shuts down, you know you got the right fuse.
