Default ABS and the Dark Side

- I've run 2 CTs on the rear and 4 E3s. I've also had problems with the ABS light from time to time, but it has worked properly for some time until I put the current ct on. The 2 previous tires were E3s.
Now I'm wondering if the 195/55 CT is different enough to effect the way the ABS logic reads the sensors. The rear tire would now be turning slightly faster, which could account for the ABS light.
I also wonder if there are ABS rings available for the smaller tires. I really like when ABS is working properly because of the poorly maintained roads I am often on.
wtf?

Quite possible. I did the forks and the rear tire at the same time. Could have damaged either sensor.

Did you reinstall the spacers on the front sensor??

The shims? Yes. I've also tried one less on both.

Yep. Damaged the sensor or it is too far from the ABS detection ring. If the ring was spinning faster due to the car tire, this would only make ABS think you were going faster. It would not cause an ABS system fault.

Tire size mismatch will post error C1040, but you need digital wrench to read ABS codes.
While damage is certainly possible, I don't think I roughhoused them doing the work. I wish they published an Ohm or voltage spec for the sensors to be sure. Might require an Oscilloscope to see. I should have ripped one off when I worked for IBM.
