    When they installed the lift - they didn't give the wire enough slack...over time, the wire just snapped.

    Shits happening to me right now. Just payed 70 bucks for the new wire harness and the damn thing sliced again. I see you have a 2010 as well. My younger bro has a 4cyl 2009 with a 9 inch lift and hasn't had that problem. I think you have to modify the mounting brackets with some zip ties. I gotta speak to the dealer tomorrow. Im pissed:mad:

    Just extend them yourself. Id solder new wire on each side and use a heat shrink. It looks like normal wire to me. I've seen others do it this way too.

    If you're lucky , it didn't smoke the speed sensors when wires broke, I just replaced both fronts about 30 mins ago, now ABS light is out & locker works once again...

    I rebuilt both of mine on my previous Tacoma without any issue. Like the others have said...solder in new wire, shrink wrap and electrical tape and you'll be good to go.

    Thats my plan with both sliced wires (original and the one i just put on my truck). But i want them to give me a new one because its obvious it was a factory zip-tie that is WAYYYY to tight and doesn't allow for any slack and therefore when the suspension moves the wire gets sliced on its own mounting bracket. Its an easy fix but an even easier thing to prevent if the factory didn't use that damn zip-tie. Im really disappointed right now at their stupidity.:mad:

    They are going to tell you that your lift is what made the wire too tight.

    So after fixing the stock one and the new one. I put the original (fixed) wire back on the truck and determined the exact problem.

    The reason for the wire slice is due to either no extended turn stopper on driver side wheel or larger than factory coilovers. unfortunately for me, got both reasons. When i would take sharp left hand turns the wire would press onto the coilover and be sliced by its mounting hardware.

    What i did was just hammer the mounting hardware so that it doesn't come close to the coilover and moved the wire from that spot and mounted it closer to the wheel. I took a test drive and no more ABS light on. Problem solved.
