Default Front N/S ABS sensor

During the five minutes I actually managed to get Diagbox working it diagnosed a faulty N/S front ABS sensor as the cause of my ABS/ESR warning lights. (It's now gone back to repeatedly asking for a password and won't accept scary01.)

Sounds like I have to remove the battery and various electrical gibbons to get to the connector for this sensor. Any idea how long a job this is?

Sounds like you had a live internet connection when using planet/diagbox which has then updated and deactivated as it's a clone copy.

Ah. Yes, that would explain why Diagbox now won't work. Does that mean I need to remove it and reinstall, or do I need to wipe XP and start from scratch?

Because it takes the best part of 6 hours to install diagbox, I would start with a fresh copy of XP because you don't want to get to the end of it and then realise an errant registry key has made it deactivate when installing XP takes all of half an hour.

But wait for someone else's answer first as I've always done a fresh copy of XP if there's been any issues like this.

Thanks. Good advice.I wish I'd realised I needed to turn off the laptop's wifi once Diagbox was installed.

You should also block it using a firewall. I leave my internet on as it's blocked.

Anyway - I've hijacked my own thread.

How much of a job is changing the NSF ABS sensor? Rough time taken to do it?

Bout 30minutes if all goes well, but you'll probably have to drill the old one out so maybe 45 minutes. We just go straight for the drill rather than mess about

The connector is under the corner of the fuse box, but I've never managed to see it.

I splice the new sensor onto the existing cable.
These heat shrink things are good
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123513809825
(the small white ones are big enough), with another pice of heat shrink tube over the lot.
Note that you have to check the new connection by starting the engine because they could need to be connected either way round -- the wire colours are meaningless.

Thanks guys. Splicing sounds like the way forward.
