Negative. ABS is only an issue if you have VSC that pulls info from the wheel sensors and you only modify the signal from the VSS.

I have the Dakota Digital set-up. It correctly calibrates my drive train which has 5.29's, 33"s and an auto trans. Also, I have ABS.

If you need a pic of the wiring settings, I'll post it for you.

Later.

Could you post pictures of your wiring? Haven't found any write ups yet for DD on an ABS rig. Thanks

your search skillz look to be needing practice :shame:

http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=181359

^ in that thread...
there is an '03 nearing the end of that thread...
using the same wiring method that was followed on my '00
I believe that '03 had ABS and it worked for that model too.

I'd say my search skills are sufficient.:D I've read through your write up a few times (as well as others). I do see that you changed it this afternoon to reference that 03 having ABS. Previously (please correct me if I am mistaken) there was no mention of ABS on the 03, only that you don't have ABS. I just wanted to confirm your wiring method would not cause unanticipated issues for me.

Anyway, I will follow your directions and hopefully get this speedo/odo corrected.

Thanks for the info.

I only wanted to confirm in muh write up/thread
what I knew and could verify from my own experience.

So, after more searching, I found the write up on the 03 on Expedition Portal. That truck did not have ABS. Back to square one.

Does anyone have wiring suggestions to take into consideration ABS?

you find this one ? 'nother method

http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/tech/tacoma_speedometer/

"Everything that Dakota Digital publishes warns against using this on any vehicle with anti-lock brakes. I imagine they have to include that statement to protect themselves for any liability problems. I have used this unit for over two weeks on my ABS equipped Tacoma without a single problem or ABS trouble light. I also personally know a few ABS equipped Tacomas and 4Runners who use it without problems. The installation instructions were adequate, and are available on their website if you are interested in learning more about this unique product."

Edit:

Maybe I should re-read the thread I'm posting in. Scuba says its only an issue if you have VSC (thankfully I don't) and SADGOAT says ABS no problemo..from DD tech.

What would be the symptoms of the DD changing the ABS signal?
it could affect the pulse signal to the ABS in theory...
but I doubt you'll have any issue

well... aside from dialing it in the first time :scared:

I was on the phone with DD 1.30 hrs for three days resolving...
came to find out... had a defective unit :shiner:

DD warrantied it, sent me another...
spent another 10 mins on the phone
for set up instruction/function test... done :)

You can do it ! :D

* the method I used requires less wire to be run ;) :p

Yeah, I'm going to use your method of wiring. Should be able to get it installed this weekend. I'll post up results.


Side note: My wife just asked me if I was looking at "truck porn" again.
