Abs issue

Post by Irbybaby » Thu Feb 01, 2018 8:32 pm

The tread on my driver front tire came off while driving down the highway. It tore my fog light bumper off and wrinkles my fender. My abs light is now on. Could it have just pulled my abs ans i can just mess w the wiring?

If by "could it have just pulled my abs" you meant could it have pulled on the wiring to the ABS sensor in the hub, then yes, that is possible. In fact, given the amount of damage that a delaminating tire can do and the coincidence with your incident, I would say it is likely.

The ABS wiring to the hub is not hard to check. Just get back there with a good flashlight and examine all of the exposed ABS sensor wiring from the hub to where it enters the body. It's possible the the wire may have been broken.
