    So I might of swapped the cables around on my esp button.

    Can anyone post a picture of the connector with the wires connected to it?

    OK looks like i made big mistake.

    I swapped pin 3 and 6 on accident. So I am wondering if my ABS module is bad now?

    Looks like 3 suppose to goto ground but it went to abs control module instead and 6 went to ground.
