So I just complete a spring conversion on my Mark, and it's not falling down (yet). The problem is that my ABS light stays on solid now. The only wires I cut go to the ride height sensor (3 of them). What should I look at first? I'm thinking maybe I jarred something loose by mistake.

I'll try to get some pics tomorrow morning. That's what I was thinking, so I'm not sure if it's coincidence or maybe I really screwed something up.

Here are the wires I cut. This is the height position sensor for the air ride. I cut and taped all of these wires.

Not seeing the picture.

However if you check the sticky in the brake section for the procedure, you can get the codes from the ABS computer to tell you exactly what to look for. The ABS test plug is by the passenger headlight.

I wasn't really interested in selling any of this stuff. It's all so old I wouldn't feel comfortable with the integrity of the items.

I paper clipped the ABS test plug and got error 31. I'll have my dad help check the wiring when he comes here for my wedding. Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

I understand not selling things you feel to be old or junk, but why cut the wires?

Code 31 is for LF wheel speed sensor open circuit. Check to make sure it is plugged in first, and if it is, replace the sensor. Sometimes when you take the suspension apart if you put too much tension on the ABS sensor wire, it can break inside and look fine, but won't work.

Why did you cut all of those wires? You only have to cut one to get rid of the message in the info center. I think its green/black. I always just zip tie the factory connectors to the frame when I do coil conversions, this way the customer can always switch back later a little bit more easily.
