Ok, there are only 2 things that will cause this many abs related fault codes at one time. Either the EBCM (electronic brake control module) is faulty or mice/rodent infestation that has resulted in the abs wiring harness being chewed up.

The wiring near the EBCM needs to be checked for being chewed up and replace harness if found.

If ok, then the EBCM needs to be replaced and new one programmed

ok ,i checked there is couple of wires was cut and joined back together about five wires .will it be because of it cut and joined need to be programmed or didnt connect the wires properly i mean joined wrong.

HI,

Some of the wires are carrying signals of only 5v to 8v and if not soldered together and heat shrink used, you lose enough voltage to affect it.

Wire repair doesnt require reprogramming the EBCM.

So if the wiring was not soldered, start by soldering them and using heat shrink to cover the solder work. If still getting all the codes, then either there is more wiring damage or the EBCM is faulty

When you are facing a previous wire repair that you did not do, it is always dicey on whether it was done correctly which includes not shorting out the EBCM by guessing and connecting wrong wires together or doing the repair with battery hooked up. You may be facing more wiring repair and replacing the EBCM since you wont know the competence of the person that did the wire repair

as you said i have soldered the wires and i used heat shrink.now i start my car to see still have the three lights on .put my scanner now i only have one code which is C0035 left front wheel speed sensor.
I can't pull schematics til the morning, but I would trace the wiring from the module to the wheel speed sensor. If ok replace the speed sensor

i have changed the front left speed sensor and stiil showing the same light.i have checked the two wires for the left speed sensor looks fine no damages.

HI,

Ok, if you are positive that the wiring is good, then the only remaining cause is bad left front wheel speed circuit in the EBCM. The circuit may have shorted due to either a poor wiring job originally or from the broken wiring shorting before it was discovered and wire repair made.

There are only 3 causes for the P0035 - wheel speed sensor, wiring harness, or EBCM
