    Good write-up and photos. Just wondering, are there any electronic inside the SVS modulator circuit plug? Do you know where the wire leads go to? Also, it's hard to tell but was the solder joints broken or what?

    Honestly, it was hard to tell if the solder joints were bad. But i went ahead and re-soldered them anyway.

    And SVS modulator circuit plug

    is connected to here

    One pin is connected to ground... and one is to the YG wire on the C0501 pin 9 connector... hence why it can be bypassed completely....(write up on that coming soon)

    I will be adding more to write so please keep the questions coming

    Angry impressed with the amount of work you did

    I don't think I am anywhere close to trying something that intricate considering my vehicle is my daily driver, two jobs and kids etc. BUT, I had the modulator, wheels sensors completely redone a year ago with no problems until the same mechanic did my brakes the other day and the three amigos came on the day after when I rolled/bumped over a speed bump at low speed. They haven't disappeared since. I'm debating simply leaving them on and considering getting rid of the vehicle or just driving without the ABS, TC and hill decent...how much are those T-Shirts again?

    Excellent work Josh. Takes time and effort to document work, and even to share - thank you for your work and contribution.

    LNDRV99, don't give up yet; take it to the same mechanic who did the brake job and say "the three amigos came on" after going over a speed bump since he did the brakes. Speed bump could have "bumped" something loose e.g. ABS sensor or something. Also did you mention that the same mechanic replaced the ABS modulator - is it still under work warranty?
