    I pulled 2 codes up on my 1998 Extended Cab today. When I bought this truck about 1 month ago, the light has always been on.

    Code 32: Left front wheel speed sensor signal malfunction

    Code 44: Open or short in deceleration sensor circuit

    What should I check or buy from here?

    I tried to clear the codes using the steps I found online. Either I was doing it wrong or the codes would not clear.

    I left my wire hooked up the same way it was when I checked the codes. I turned on the ignation and then hit the brakes about 10 times real quick.

    Doing this nothing changed and kept flashing the codes. Am I missing a step or not waiting until the right time do it or not hooking up my wires to the right terminals?

    use this to pull the codes: (b) Check the DTC.
    (1) Turn the ignition switch ON.
    (2) Disconnect the short pin from DLC1.
    (3) Using SST, connect terminals Tc and E1 of DLC1.
    SST 09843 − 18020
    (4) Read the DTC from the ABS warning light on the
    combination meter.
    Instead of the sst just us a paper clip. the DLC1 is under the hood.
    use this to clear the codes:Clear the DTC.
    (1) Using SST, connect terminals Tc and E1 of DLC1
    and remove the short pin from DLC1.
    SST 09843−18020
    (2) IG switch ON.
    (3) Clear the DTC stored in ECU by depressing the
    brake pedal 8 or more times within 5 seconds.
    (4) Check that the warning light shows the normal
    code.
    (5) Remove the SST from the terminals of DLC1.
    SST 09843−18020
    (6) Connect the short pin to DLC1.

    What does "remove the short pin from DLC1" & "(6) Connect the short pin to DLC1" mean? What is a short pin?

    I read my codes myself but, maybe the short pin step is what I am missing on clearing my ABS computer.

    If the codes won't clear, check the wiring and connections for shorts/opens, corrosion, and chafing. If the wires are good, then the sensors are suspect.

    if you open up the dlc1 there is a little metal pin there kinda looks like a fuse that is the short pin. you have to remove it and then use a paper clip for tc and e1. then do the brake pedal and then pull the paper clip and reinstall the short pin. all codes will clear no matter if you have a open or short but once the truck starts move if the problem is still there the light will come back on.

    I don't see a pin or anything that looks like a fuse. Will you take me a picture of what you are talking about?

    I tried again this afternoon to clear the codes by just the paperclip thing but, the codes were never removed.

    Sorry for the picture quality on these pictures, it was night time and all I had was my camera phone.

    Would you mind looking and seeing if I have that short pin you are talking about?

    Big Dog, I appreciate you showing me that picture. Is your Tacoma a 1996? Is that pin just a metal pin?

    I wonder if there is a difference between the 1996 & 1998 in regards to clearing out the ABS codes?

    Hey guys,

    Sorry to revive this thread.

    I just bought a 1998 4x4 Xtra-Cab v6, and the ABS light has been on since the delivery. The previous owner never had it addressed.

    I notice that many people on here are using a tool to address the ABS trouble codes, and I was just wondering what scanner is everyone using. I want to read the codes and possibly clear them like you all mentioned.

    I have read quite bit about this Ultragauge II, is that the correct scanner, or is this something completely different?

    Any help would be appreciated.
