I've got a 2001 4x4, 3.4 liter V6 Tacoma. I had an incident earlier in the year that caused my ABS Control module to engage in low speeds and it becomes annoying and dangerous all the time.

Does anyone have an extra ABS control module part # 89541-04010 that I can buy from them for around $200? Either that or does anyone know how to pull the fuse that controls the ABS control module? I tried pulling the fuse and it won't budge. I also read in another forum that the fuse for the ABS control module is actually soldered on the fuse box. Anyone have any recommendations on how to disable it?

Easy to kill your ABS, and cheaper than buying a module. Follow the ABS wire away from a wheel - look for a connector and disconnect it. That will knock out your entire ABS system. When you plug it back in, it may take 30 seconds or more for the system to come back on.

I let the ABS live in happiness when I'm driving around town, but when I get to the desert, it gets KILLED - here's how to disconnect on a 2006:

Stand in front of your truck, looking to the rear, and here's what you'll see (except for the little words and the arrow). Disconnecting this connector (in this case, the front left wheel) will kill the ABS:

I was able to pull the wiring that directly connected to the ABS Control Module. That seemed to have stopped it. It's different from the connector that your picture is pointing since all the wiring seems to be meshed together with other wiring that would have also unplugged other electrical items. There's a bright orange sliding clip that pointed straight to the electrical wiring connector once I followed the wiring. Thanks for the Help!
