I just got home from vacation and i go to pick up my car and i notice there are two wires hanging down by my front passenger tire. There was no issue with driving the car. I have attached some pictures, if anybody could give me an idea i would greatly appreicate it.

its wire for a wheel speed sensor hang them immediately see how they are twisted they are a serial data line to the abs control module and if become ripped you will not be able to repair so tuck them up

How urgent is it to get fixed? Could this also be a reason for my abs light to be on?

not urgent in my opinion these wires can not be repaired for they have a special shielding they are twisted to reduce interfernce in the signal, and for the abs yes this will cause the light and its not a necessity but i dnt like any warning lights on in my car

So at this point it can not be fixed? Is there a way to get the light to go off? Thank you for your help.

here is wat i would do find the break or open in the wiring and try to repair it or find a junk yard and get a harness for that affected wheel you might check general motors and see if they have the harness and what yr is the car

I will try a junk yard and GM dealership. The car is a 2000 ws6.

isn't this the wire that plugs into the back of the spindle? If so just plug it back in.

I didnt take a good picture of the bottom of the wire, there is no connector. It must have drag on the ground. Its just two exposed wires now.

you can get the connector from the jumkyard they come apart take a pic of wires and let me see condition if the pins are still there then were in luck
