So I'm getting the front passenger side hub codes and went to check it out and saw this kink in the wire. I pulled out the volt meter and turn the car to on and I'm getting 5volts from the harness. So if I'm getting this 5v could it still be my harness or is it really my hub.

I threw the code a few days after I changed the half shaft on that side and it's been happening intermediately since then now everytime I go to back out the drive way

Thanks again

If those wires are exposed, it could certainly be the wires causing the problems.

So what should be my next step in diagnosing it, before I splice a new harness in could I put some dielectric grease and tape over it and see if I still throw the code?

If the wires are exposed, I would just go ahead and replace the harness. You are gonna need to do it anyway, might as well take care of it now.

Give the wire a good pull, if its bad inside it will break.

Just cut it where it's bad and throw some butt splices on there. If you don't use the waterproof ones the light may come on if they get wet. If it works, invest a few more bucks into getting the waterproof butt splices with heat shrink on them.

Harbor Freight has it for much cheaper than the parts stores, FYI. Smile

Replacing the bad part never crossed my mind thank you I'll try that. I'll pick up some tomorrow and splice that in to see if that was the problem. I'll report back and let you you guys no what I find.

So that little kink was the issue, I cut the wire and put in a but connector and no more abs traction control lights are on.
