The timken bearing was purchased at rockauto.com http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1490450&cc=1430835
I have not yet tested the sensor.
Regarding clearing the codes.
Is there a sequence of button/brake/ignition/etc. actions to reset the codes?
Will the codes clear themselves once the problem is fixed?
I replied asking for clarification. Did you get that message?
1. You mentioned the bearing needs to be oriented correctly. What is the correct bearing orientation for a 2005 Honda Odyssey? Can you cite a reference? I'm calling the two sides "black" and "metal". The RockAuto link shows the "black" side. Which side faces the knuckle? vs. Which side faces the hub?
2. Can I test that a bearing is good/compatible? Right now, assuming the speed sensor is OK (I will test), I could be replacing good/new parts and hoping it works. Timken and RockAuto are at least as reputable as Honda. How do I tell the Timken bearing is bad? When I buy a bearing from Honda, how do I tell the Honda bearing is good?
3. Can you confirm the ODB2 tool will not reset the ABS codes?
Can you cite a reference on the bearing orientation?
The All Data website seems to contradict what you are saying.

Press a new wheel bearing (A) into the knuckle (B) using the old bearing (C), a steel plate (D), the special tool, and a press. Place the wheel bearing on the knuckle with the magnetic encoder side (black color) facing toward the inside. Be careful not to damage the magnetic encoder.
