Hi, i have a 2003 GMC Envoy SLE 4.6L RWD.

So as i was going to change my wheel hug bearing, i noticed that someone must have cut the ABS front wheel sensor connector and connected the wires directly.

Now that i am going to change the Wheel hub bearing, i want to remedy this issue correctly and not cut my new wheel hubs ABS sensor wire in order to directly connect.

So I went ahead and bought this ABS pigtail from Ebay in a hurry ABS Connector Pigtail

Seems to be the correct one for my RWD front side. However, as i am looking at the image, it seems they are both white colored.

and if you see my image above. One is green, One is Orange.

When i get the pigtail in the mail, im not sure how i should connect this. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I do not think it will matter. The sensor produces a small AC voltage so no need to worry about a ground.

What he said (^) ... this is just a 2-wire signal that doesn't care a fig if it runs through aluminum foil or old metal coat hangers.

Polarity has nothing to do with it either so don't worry.
It WOULD be nice to make heat shrunk butt connections though .. the signal is kinda weak and if there's any water getting into those connections, then you could have troubles.​

Thanks so much guys! All i have to worry about then is having a good strong connection!

Yes @Ravalli Surfer i have awg 14 to 16 heat shrink tubing with solder in the middle. All i have to do is heat it up with a heat gun and the solder will melt and the tubing will shrink to keep it tight.. a little bit of electrical tape around the wires too should help.

That's not really solder -- I believe it's bismuth
