Will be a hall effect sensor, unlikely but not impossible its failed, I'd check for broken/loose wiring first. Check for voltage fluctuations when you spin the hub (with disc in place) or pull the sensor away and wave something ferrous like a small bolt in front of it :)

Remember that breaks in the wiring can be in the loom not just in the sensor, diagnosis with a multimeter is ALWAYS the best route to take first :)

Will work for your sensor too. Is that no continuity in the loom you say?
in the sensor sorry i bought a decent multimeter today from snap on seeing as i use one more than i realise i thought why not :)

how does that work for the abs sensor as it only has 2 wires and my multimeter papers say not to test continuity while passing current

You're testing voltage. It probably earths through the mounting point so you have only a supply and signal wire...
Only thing REALLY to watch out for is that you don't try measure the voltage in current mode, as you'll short through the meter and cook it :) I've seen a multimeter that was shorted accross a 240v supply. It exploded. The bloke went to hospital with burns...

just my drivers seat is proper worn im in no rush mate was just wondering
 
Nice man, I feel your pain with the rust, it's exactly where mine had gone although a lot worse than yours.





Check around the rear seat belt bolts, as there rotted on mine as well



the inner sill, the sills themselves and the chassis legs would be another place to check as well. I am only showing you photos and giving you pointers as this is what has gone on mine.

BUT - a worthy upgrade to a Micra, once fixed, and you start doing bits to them, it will be a really good car :) and they look really good in silver too. I had a 1.0 k11 white 3dr before this :) Here is a photo of mine (and mine was originally an SRi, so same bumpers and interior as yours :) )

Would be nicer without that nasty shopping list.
Do you even have anything Apexi, Samco or AEM? :rolleyes:
