    check each sensor with a multimeter if they show open circuit there buggered they should show a resistance which off the top of my head can't remember what resistance it is

    easiest place to check the resistance is from the first connector just follow the wire from the sensor at the wheel


    good luck

    set multimeter to the ohms scale and if selectable something like the 1K ohms scale.. as long as you get a reading it's not open circuit

    If it's unplugged, open circuit so light comes on when ignition is switch on and self check starts.
    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    The abs light should flash the codes.
