Abs question

I took the wheels off today so I can check my abs sensors and found a wire on the right side hanging there but not sure where it goes and a plug above a black box

I have some pics

So in the black box, you have 2 cables. One is the ABS sensor cable and I'm guessing the other is a brake pad wear sensor cable (not sure since I've never had a 750).

The other end of the ABS cable will screw into the rear side of the wheel, basically the opposite side of the brake disc. If the other cable is a brake pad sensor, then it will attach to the brake pad inside the caliper.

If Jmorgenson isn't right he should be. That is my guess also. Are you getting any displays for ABS or Check Brakes?

I couldnt tell untill yesterday because i replaced my cluster and what came up on my display was [ check brakes ] and [ check brake lights ]
the brakes are because of that break pad sensor wire and im not to sure about brake lights because they all work. i had a check coolant come on but i topped it off with distilled water and it went out. i have clear antifreeze in the rad does anyone know what brand antifreeze comes clear ?
QUESTION does anyone know how i can program the correct milege on my new cluster
. the car only has 90k but the new cluster reads 217k. i was told to go to the dealer with both clusters and they can program the milege into my new cluster is this true ?
