Concentrate on the engine codes and perform the required *hands-on* testing to find the actual failure(s) so a repair strategy can be implemented.

‘THEN’ the Antilock Brake System failure will need to be properly diagnosed and repaired as well.

I see the engine has had some major repairs - suggest closely inspecting all wiring and wiring connections throughout the engine bay..

Good luck!

Don’t worry that I posted ‘Cadillac’ above - code PO113 requires same diagnostic testing for all GM vehicles..


Considering the posted repair work - that sensor is likely disconnected - plus the strong possibility of shorted wiring.. Happy hunting!

OK I put 40 amp ABS back in and drove the car, no check engine light and no codes after the drive, but the car runs so bad , took fuse back out again and car runs fine, but got codes. Some one help me please, this makes no sense at all.

The ONLY connection between the engine running poorly and the ABS fuse is one you have created during the process of engine repairs.

That just how it is!

We can’t offer any further assistance other than to suggest seeking *hands-on* help.

Good luck with it!

ABS system and engine performance do not have intersecting components. Those trouble codes you have listed are related to engine performance. Without hands on testing and monitoring of components, it is difficult to say what is not working properly. I would maybe guess the fuse pulled is related to engine performance components?
