easiest tell tail signs: ABS fuse, Check ABS lights up in cluster when starting. You got them ?

1:Does the ABS light come on when you turn the key?
2:Is there a fuse in the ABS section inside the engine bay fuse harness?
3:If there is 3 pipes on the brake booster then No, if theres 2 pipes then Yes.
4:Check to see if theres any leads running to the wheels, apart from the brake lines themselves!

and finally! does she lock-up?

I hope this helps!

Then don't forget the auto blanking plug! its tucked away behind the fuse panel (green/red wires) you'll have to go fishing! also... When putting in the module, Just undo the brake booster (2 front bolts) and slightly move it aside to make room for the lovely device!
and All the best!

PS, If its Manual.. I have a spare clutch switch (non gen) made up with a loom to plug into the plug.. yours for FREE..

If you don't require it.. then anyone else is welcome to it!
