i was under the belief that just pulling the fuses didn't kill the ABS. we
pulled the fuses out of all of our airbags and still had one deploy. now i
get a little more agressive about defusing the bombs in the steering wheel.
Maybe I'm talking about relays then. In the black "fuse box" inside
the engine compartment on a (1994) Ram. I guess I've always just
referred to those as fuses. And not to question your knowledge, but
I've been waiting for a chance to test this out, we just haven't
gotten any doggone rain here in forever!!
OK, found out what I was talking about was the relays (although there
are also big ol' fuses in the PD box). Sorry if I misled anyone with
that! I'm curious now though, what's the reasoning behind saying that
pulling the fuses for ABS won't work? It works for pretty much
everything else. Is it just because it's a safety system?
I had a similar problem at 39K on my '04 3500 4x4 , but with the U joints on
the front axle. They clearly failed because of the lack of lubrication. The
factory joints (Precision) do not have a grease fitting. In my case, the
problem was resolved under warranty.

Yep, that too... Last summer, thought they failed the previous winter.
Warranty (since expired) covered it. Both U joints failed at under 25K
I'm beginning to understand why I'm fustrated: front axle U joints,
and hubs all failed and for a very preventable reason: improper
lubrication from the factory.
I may plow but I don't beat the truck...
