    I had to repair the speed sensor (from the transaxle) wiring on our '96 in 2017. We had gotten a lone ABS code one time. I was shocked at how much of the twisted pair to the speed sensor was melted and fused together. There was some other melted wiring damage too, IIRC. It was still all clipped to the the back of the oil pan. I had to unclip and pull the small harness out on the driver's side to repair it. This isn't the best picture, and it almost looks like it was chewed, but it wasn't. I am amazed it was actually working.

      That looks more like the crank position sensor wire. I don't believe the VSS is a twisted pair.

        I think you may be correct. It has been a while ago and I do believe I had to repair both (VSS & CPS). I wondered why the area had been so hot. We bought the car new and nothing odd or unusual has ever happened to it.

          My 89s have yellow and purple wires for the crank sensor. But also a solid bare metal wire and a foil jacket. I took an old harness and made it into a test cable.

            Cruise cable and module from a 2001 Aurora. This will fit the big throttle body.
