Unplug the harness right on top of the brake booster in the passenger side cowl area and see for yourself.

If you unclip one sensor in the wheel well the abs stops working and the speedo still works,

On a side note, I'm betting that pulling that fuse will also disable the speedo and etc as well.

I kind of like the idea of pulling out three of the wheel speed sensors and leave the 4th one.

and if you did that would it completely disable the abs? cause if it was still attempting to work on one wheel that would be akward
