Thanks ZeGerman, for the great reply....what kind of scanner can I use? I'm reluctant to pay he dealer $175 to scan it. Can any ordinary OBD II scanner work? I think Walmart sells them. Which relays can I check myself (with a DMM) or should I let the scanner tell me which relays to check? Which fuses (I don't think the scanner will tell me which fuses)? The reason I cleaned the sensors is because I read about it on some website. I guess it makes sense if iron filings or rust from the rotors are stuck to the sensor with road grime. I did clean off a lot of grime. The same website did say you can test the sensors using a DMM, but I forgot how. Do you agree with this method? If so, I can test them for a faulty one.
