Mine were broken wires.

If you plan on keeping the WJ its worth having a more advanced scanner that reads ABS, and manufacture specific (special) codes.

Not to sound like too much of an idiot, but is the ABS sensor easy to get to with the wheel off?

Mine does the same thing as the OP. I thought it was weather related as the ABS light seems to go off when its above 80*, but stay off when below.

Either get a scanner that scans for abs.

Or using a volt meter you can test them using the resistance or AC setting (with the AC setting you spin the wheel) However you most likely won't see anything if the abs light isn't on. Unless you jerk and twist the cable while spinning the wheel and look for the signal to drop out.

Spinning the wheel past 50 or even 80mph (as per post #17)?

No, you unplug the connector and hook your meter to the pins.

Then read ohms

Or you can flip to AC (or frequency if you got it) and spin the wheel. The voltage should be there no matter what speed. The frequency will increase with wheel speed.

Question for you, MeanGreenZJ...

My question in totally unrelated to this topic, but I didn't know of any other way to ask you. A while back to posted about adding a Texas Crypto chip to one of those aftermarket flip-key remotes so one could avoid having to mount an actual key near the Sentry sensor in the steering column. I can find those chips readily available online but how would I go about programming it? Would I just tape it to a non-Sentry key that I got cut from my original keys and then go about programming it just like if it were an actual Sentry key with the chip embedded? Again, sorry to hijack this and go off-topic, but I was just curious. Thank you for your time and consideration.
