(NOT A MUSTANG) What is this wire?!

Probably the wrong section, move if necessary, but since hyundai forums aren't very active and and I have an s197, I figured...


This is on my 2001 santa fe. This is a picture of the front passenger wheel. I have the ABS and TCS lights on. I went under it and noticed that this exact wire is frayed and disconnected on the front driver side.

Does anyone know what this might be?

This might help. Apparently tone ring failure is common on Sante Fes and causes similar issues as yours.

I did a little research on it but the tone rings are all i've come up with, I've traced the wire up to the engine bay and it goes to a tiny connector, less than an inch tall/wide. It has to some type of sensor. I'm guessing the wheel speed sensor.

That would be my guess too.

It is your wheel speed sensor or abs sensor that the TCS uses also.. You have found your problem with the frayed and disconnected one. It will cause all of those lights to light up like a Christmas tree.

I actually left and went to autozone to compare it to a wheel speed sensor, I was right! Thank you, though. Glad to know this should turn the lights off.

Sad thing is, this part costs $50 for our mustangs. And the price jumps up to $200 for the santa fe. Needless to say, I've already located a santa fe for parts.

Wow, that's quite the premium.
