    Hey guys and gals. Could use a little help:

    2011 TX Pro

    Somehow I ripped the 4 wires out of the female end of the rear ABS connector. There are 4 different color wires on my 2011; black, yellow, white, and tan. Because the wires pulled out of the connector I'm not sure which wire goes to which connector on the female end.

    Here's a pic.

    [​IMG]

    It would help me a ton if someone knew (or had a pic) how these wires connect. The gray ABS connector is located on the bracket above the black connector also shown in the pic. Both are located above and behind the rear axle.

    Each set of blue and white wires on the make connector are from the ABS sensors in each rear wheel.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Jason

    Thought I would post the solution:

    IMG_4325.jpg

    The damaged connector caused the following issues:

    ABS Light = constant on
    Brake Light = constant on
    Traction Control Light = constant on
    Check Engine Light (CEL) = constant on
    Speedometer = not working
    Odometer & trip-meters = not working
    Cruise Control = not working

    CEL Codes Thrown = P0500 - Speed Sensor

    Fix:

    Replaced 4 pin connectors.
    Determined which wire had voltage
    Connected as shown above
    Removed Neg Batt Terminal (to clear CEL)
    Jumped Pin 4 and Pin 13 in OBDII port.
    Tuned ignition on
    Reset ABS by hitting brake peddle 8 times in 5 sec.
    Turned off ignition
    Removed jumper
    Started truck
    All lights on dash went off.

    Haven't driven much since the fix, but can confirm all lights are off and spedo / odometer works.

    Sorry for the late reply. White wire go in positions 1&3. Blue go to 2&4. Good luck. I’ve had no issues since my fix. Crap. Just jinxed myself I’m sure.

    @OdinBow Did you get a new connector? Where did you find it?

    Does it matter which white wire goes in 1 or 3? Same question for the blue ones.

    I don’t think so until you have a sensor go out. If they are wired backwards you may need to troubleshoot both sides to figure out which one needs replacement. I haven’t had any issues and figured it’s a 50/50 chance of getting it right. So, I’m sure I’ll be rewiring it eventually. :anonymous:
