Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the ABS module doesn't communicate then it's missing power, ground, it has failed, or there is a communication bus wiring issue only affecting the ABS module.

It appears you're testing power and ground feeds with a voltmeter, which won't give an accurate test result. Do you have a headlamp bulb and some jumper wires?
