Well, today is a new day. Today, the ABS light came
back on for the entire trip (40 miles) to work. Not
even a blink.
Yesterday it worked fine for the entire duration to
and from work. When I got home, I got back into the
area of the relay to confirm my mistake about the
fuse. In wiggling things around I may have changed the
status of a loose connection or intermittent ground?
Will report again when I have time to get under the
dash again.
Also, a clarification. The jump I described that I
sometimes got when stopping did not feel the same as
when the ABS activates. It was simply one small jolt
accompanied by what felt like a small amount of pedal
movement. A disconcerting feeling.
