I stick to my initial response that it’s not fair that we now have to worry about the continuity of each wire on our cars. I have enough to fix already
Life's not fair. I get to worry about every wire on ~50 928s.
@Shifted didn't read your entire treatise yet. But, after 30+ years, all(*) of the ABS harnesses from each wheel well up to and including the body harness are all one hard bend from breaking internally. To date, all but one ABS problem I've encountered were due to intermittent inside-the-harness or at-the-plug-connector issues. I've not once ever found a bad sender or bad sender pigtail harness.
(*) The '87-89 wheel well harnesses are particularly bad. A material change was made towards the end of MY'89 and those harnesses are much much better. However, the white (brown now) plastic connectors are the same crap material.
There is a 'dude' who's slowly but surely developing the bits and pieces to make new ABS harnesses. Roger and others resell his bits. But, he's only about 1/2 there.
