How did the brakes work with the sensor bad/missing?  I'm wondering, because I'm having a similar problem with my TGP.  My brakes work fine, but the antilock function isn't working.  Did your antilock work?
Thanks

Nick. The ABS light was "on" but everything appeared to work OK. Now with new sensor and new fluid the brakes work great and the light it out. Firm and responsive. I've been following your progress. I'm not a mechanic but here's my .02
1. Completely remove all air from the system (easier said then done).
2. Troubleshoot / repair wheel sensor.
3. Relax, you're almost there.

I already did step 1.  I got ALL of the air out of the system, and I bled the crap outta the system until new, clear fluid came out at each caliper- I think I went through like 1.5- 2 gallons of brake fluid lol!  It stops GREAT.  The only time I got the brakes to lock up was when I drove it on a loose surface- like I said when I tried it yesterday, the brakes just lock up on gravel, when a few months ago, I could see and feel antilock working.

BRAKE light is on steady- that I think is because my Ebrake is stuck on- (It locked up my rear wheels, and the cable seized, so I just disconnected the Ebrake cable from my calipers, so the cable is still stuck in the Ebrake on position.) I need to get a cable replacement- anybody got one that isn't seized?
ANTILOCK light is now on steady, and like I said, if I drive it on a loose surface, I can get the wheels to completely lock up- no ABS.
