Re: code scanners
For what it i worth, I had an ABS light.
A talk to a CarX shop manager told meto go to a particular harness in the
right kickpanel area. Ty a wire to it and ground it with the key to on.
Counted the flashes for the code.
The manager toldme what the code meant.
In my case the sensor on the differential went bad.
Got a new one at a NAPA(?) parts store for ~$15.
Replaced it and problem solved.
