    No ABS but wires present to Hubs Z16XE.

    As title was checking front brakes yesterday and noticed wire with grey plug coming from hub and also wire with black plug coming through inner wing . Passenger side the grey plug had a connecting wire to inner wing black plug ,looked like drivers side wire was missing .

    Question is can the ABS be connected up and Tech 2'd to work ?

    Thought cars without ABS would have hubs with no wires ?

    Car is an Astra 1.6 SXI 2002 Z16XE Cheers Chris

    my car is the same 1.6 sxi no abs

    I believe the wire is for the speed sensor in the hub - its what gives your speedo its signal

    Mine is an 03 52 plate and doesn't have ABS either, i thought every new car from 2002 onwards was meant to have ABS standard like Danny mentioned.
