Does anybody have a pic of the wiring harness or a how to? I bought a "dorman Part Number: 970-040" from autozone. Looks like the connector would plug into the speed sensor on the hub, but what about the open wires? Obviously there's some splicing involved. Anybody got some help for me? It's going to the mechanic if I cant get some more info. Thanks.

Not sure what you want to know, but here's a How-To

1) Cut the factory harness
2) Splice the new harness into the factory harness
3) Solder connections
4) Heat shrink tubing over connections

To clarify my question...
this harness has 2 ends, is the connector the "wheel speed sensor connector" attatched to the hub? Also when splicing I can't tell if there are many wires or just one, so could I get more descriptionan about splicing, I would just basically twist them up and then seal. Also if anybody has esperience approx where would I splice into the wire coming out of the abs unit opposite end of the connector?

That looks like the vehicle side that plugs into the hub speed sensor connector...

There are 2 wires that need to be spliced... cut then on the car side of the harness, strip them, twist each one with one on the new harness (make sure you slide heat shrink tubing on first), solder each connection, then apply the heat shrink tubing

Don't bring your own parts to a garage.

I took off the wheel when I got home and used electrical contact cleaner on the harness connector. (autozone ordered the wrong part)I duct taped the wire near the connector and up a little further where there was a rip. I also adjusted the wire harness, I gently picked it up and jimmied it towards the speed sensor giving it maybe an inch more to wiggle when the wheel turns right. Drove it about 5 miles and so far no lights or grinding. Temporarily is fixed but wouldn't be supprised if it came back on.
