Alright I got some PB blaster, I'm gonna spray it ever hour, let it soak overnight and then try it tomorrow with a 6 foot breaker bar again. I hope that works

If we're not doing it to do it right, what's the point?

Well, I broke two more chain pliers. I guess I'll have to get the SST.

Finally got the SOB out. Had to use the SST and a 7 foot cheater bar on my breaker. Can anyone tell me/ show me where the left and right front ABS sensors plug into? I searched my engine bay and can't find any unplugged connectors that would reach it or fit it.

Aha, I removed my dash to check the lights and lo and behold, the BRAKE, TRAC OFF and ABS light are missing. I'll order those soon and go from there. It would also appear I have a complete absence of a connector to plug the ABS sensor in on my front passengers side.

Alright, wheel sensors are all on, everything is still the same. Question though, if I'm missing my Abs light, trac light etc, would that cause the speedometer to not function even if all wheel sensors were good? I've yet to test the sensors individually, I'll be doing that in the next few days.

Okay, I'm just gonna replace all of my wheel speed sensors. I purchased the driver front one, went to change it and the wiring harness pigtail is the male end instead of female and its also hap-harzardly taped together with electrical tape from the previous owner, lovely. Before I start soldering sh*t, can anyone tell me which color wire goes to which side of the connector? The connector thats on the harness side.

I’m having a problem with my speedo and momentary fuel consumption gauge as well. I was rocking the car back and forth from R to D and all of a sudden it stopped working. No clue what it could be. Also next time you need to get that crank bolt, get your socket and breaker bar on there and twist it till the bar is wedged on something solid (remember reverse thread) and get in the car and turn it over as if you’re trying to start it. That’s how I got mine off when I replaced my harmonic balancer/ pulley.
