Pulled battery and airbox tonight; swapped out ABS module and crank position sensor.

The CPS out of the V70 was showing .501 ohms resistance when tested on a multimeter at 2k ohms; the CPS in the 850 was showing .350 at 2k. I’m not sure what that means, lol, but since I wasn’t having these issues with the V70, I swapped them out.

Got it all put back together and TRACs light went out and speedo now works. No missing on the ride home. I held off on swapping out the cam position sensor since that one can be removed easier without taking the airbox out.

Thanks for all your help, everyone -
