Plastic connector on the abs wire came off exposing the wires. Is they way to fix this or would be easier just to get a new wire?
You should get a new plugin, connector, they do make them.
How easy it to change
Yes, it's called a pigtail. It's not hard to change. You'll need a few butt connectors, a crimping tool, and some heat shrink tubing. All available at your local auto parts store. HTH. -Jim
It should be easy enough, but I did some checking and all I can find is the hole cable assembly. There must be a reason like they probably don't want you to be spicing into that wire.

Hey there Js0816...
If I connected the 2 wires together would my abs work or could that messed up the system? I don't have abs or tc right now and I got snow coming my way next week. The car sucks in the snow
Hey there Rowefast, very good point! On some systems resistance on the wires is important so splicing into them might not fix it! Twest98, don't connect the wires together! That won't give you the ABS or Traction Control system back. That will throw another ABS code because the computer will think that the sensor is shorted. The ABS and Traction Control systems work together. So if a problem is detected in one system, both are disabled until it's fixed. HTH. -Jim
Well I found pif tails with the plug on them to replace the old one. I'd rather spend the $15 trying that first instead of $34 dollars for a while new wire
Thanks for the back-up, I didn't know how to answer his last question. I figured there be a good reason.
