Hi, replying on behalf of Jane here - it's the front offside ABS sensor on disc brakes and it's reading open circuit with an ohmmeter after we took a reading across the terminals under the wheel arch (after we'd separated the connector) -so we reckon it's goosed.

Did you spin the wheel and get around about fluctuating 2 v dc?

Easy to replace just remove the securing bolt then pull the offending ABS sensor,or ply it out with a sharp screwdriver if it stubbern,then inset the new abs sensor with a nice coating of WD40 to aid insertion.You may need to scrub up the seating with wire wool to rid the rust.
