    After pulling my axles and moving the abs sensors, I basically need one new sensor, abs light is on. So can I get abs sensors off another 94/95 and swap em in? I don't want to spend $180 on new ones..

    Try cleaning them off first. They are right in the nitty gritty of eveything and get coated with tons of crap.

    Yeah brake cleaner will work great. They're probably coated with little metal fragments so you need to wipe them off too. Is the guy that did the gears paying for the sensor?

    Its not broken. The sensors were moved and put back, and the lights on. So it could be that for 19 years they've been covered in dirt, grime, salt. So I'm going to try cleaning them and hope it fixes the light *crosses fingers*

    Well I talked to him, and he's going to fix the sensors. Whether that means buy new ones or whatever he has to do, it will be fixed on his dime. And its not getting fixed by removing the abs bulb in the cluster LOL.
