Default Ugh, ABS problems?

I lowered my car, and screwed up the cable that dicks with ABS, Traction Control and the flat tire monitor. I'm not sure where the cable is jacked, it could be in the cable but it is not physically unplugged/ripped. Anyways I was ok with this but started noticing that around turns if I brake my right front ABS is kicking in, if I slam on the brakes, the front left wheel locks up and the right one has ABS going. Any suggestions besides taking it to a shop, I am kinda low on money right now.

Thanks

Sounds like you've got a bad wheel speed sensor. Have you made sure the sensor is in place and plugged in?

ABS sensors are nasty little bastards. My front ones are dead. I STILL need to replace them. I suggest you replace them sooner rather than later.

It's not that hard to replace the sensors. They are specific to wheel though.

Definitely cheaper to go to Steve's, but it's a bit far up the road.

does the ABS light turn itself off when the sensor is good or is it a trip to the dealer?

Just been and got a new abs sensor, cost £35 or around $70 and the light turns itself off, no need for a dealer trip

What about the Traction Control and flat tire lights? Did they shut off as well?
