Hello, my name is Joe

Your Workhorse chassis has a Wabco hydraulic brake system.

The ABS data and fault codes can be read easily with a "TECH 2" scan tool. The "TECH 2" scan tool has been the standard factory / dealer scan tool for many years.

Your ABS warning is most likely being caused by a defective or damaged wheel speed sensor, but you just need to find a shop or technician who has the correct scan tool to read the data from the OBDII data connection under the dash.
