So a friend helped me change my front axle u-joint last night. Slight complication when getting it to pop out.
We dented the round ridged section the abs uses to track itself apparently, when trying to bend the dent out a piece of it snapped off (Forgive me for not knowing what exactly the part is called I think I have heard it referred to as a tone ring? I am not exactly a mechanical mastermind obviously
Now when I start the Jeep every time I hit the brakes for about the first 20 seconds the ABS is kicking in and constantly pulsating when trying to brake. This can make getting out of the driveway without driving straight into oncoming traffic a bit dangerous.
The ABS fails and turns itself off shortly there after, but it still takes a bit for it to do so every time I start the Jeep up.
Long story short, I can't really afford to replace it right now, and Id much rather just disable ABS all together until I can. Is there a simple relay I can pull? I don't care about the light being on, I just would like to not slowly creep into oncoming traffic .
As well as any idea of what part I'll need to buy down the line later to fix it. Do I have to buy the entire axle shaft?
