Hi .

Yes the code P1773 is an ABS malfunction code but a code that we call a ghost code which is out of

the OBD system.

In most cases we find that this issue is normally related to the wheel speed sensors ,and find that for some reason the rear left or right sensors is the culprit ,but could also be one of the front but this is rare .

What you need to do is have a good scan tool hooked up and in live date do a test drive and check the speed of each of the sensors all speed should be the same speed if one reads much less or no speed then replace that sensor .

I would probably bet that the rear left had failed but test to be sure don't want you replacing sensors that are good .

Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
