    Help reinstalling my abs/traction control

    I have a 4 channel car, I just installed the axles and sensors back into the rear. But I can not find the cable that plugs into the sensors for the abs.traction control. I had a shop put in the rear end i have now, so i dont know where this cable is. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bryon

    There should be a sensor @ each wheel with a corresponding pig tail for each..

    Not sure what you mean by "cable"..

    correct.

    Did you replace the rear end with a different or new one?

    Any possibility that you had a stock 10 bolt with a 1 channel? If you did then there is not going to be the extra pigtails at the ends. One way to make sure of that is to look in the center area of the rear end on top and see if you see a pigtail disconnected.

    The reason i'm mention this is because I also have a 98 and is a 3 channel OEM.

    Thnks for the help guys, I have a 4 channel car and i have a 3 channel rear end in it. I have installed the backing plates/sensors, and axles for a 4 channel so i could get my abs and traction control back. I just dont know what to connect to the sensors? I can get pics if that helps.

    Oh i see now. and you don't see any wire pigtails bundle up in the middle of the rear end at the top? maybe zip tied? If they were on the rear end itself they will be pretty obvious and close to were the sensors are. Can you post some pics of the area of the sensors and the rear end itself?

    I have a feeling that you are missing this harness.

    This were the pigtails are supposed to be at. They should be really close to the sensors.


    On top of the center of the rear end do you see any electrical plug unconnected?

    I assume the technical term would be abs wiring harness? I will try to see if we have them at work tonight.

    I believe you could easily build a harness as they appear to be standard weather pak ends that you can buy at the parts store. If you need a wiring diagram or a used harness shoot me a PM. Did you plug off the hole in the top of the differential or just leave the 3 channel sensor installed?

    I just left the top sensor in. If I could get a used one that would work to.
