Please REVIEW: Brake Pressure Sensor Diagnostic Test DIY

In keeping with the diagnostic nature of this thread, and, to further help a newbie who posted here:
- E39 (1997 - 2003) > Brake Pressure Sensor (DSC/ABS/BRAKE Trifecta)

I just snapped & annotated these pictures which should clarify which wires are for power, ground, and signal.

This shows how I removed the X1654 connector at the back of the brake pressure sensor:


With the connector off, the otherwise-diabolical Germanic connector seems outright simple:


The 1,2,3 numbering scheme is clear when you look at the BACK of the X1654 brake pressure sensor harness clip:


While all three pins are labeled in the rear, only pin #3 is labeled on the front of the X1654 brake hydraulic pressure sensor harness connector:


Putting it all together, we get something like this as a tentative DIY for testing the brake hydraulic pressure sensor.

While there is an active test (via DIS/INPA) of the brake pressure sensor ... here is a summary of the simpler-to-run VOLTAGE method of testing the brake pressure sensor.

PLEASE IMPROVE & CORRECT ERRORS OR OMISSIONS!
