Default ABS/brake guru's please read :)

HOKAY, so...

i've installed a dsspro VSS. unfortunately, it won't work by splicing into the ABS. i can run the signal from the sensor to the ABS and it'll work, OR i can run the signal into the VSS and have a speedo. the signal is NOT strong enough to run both.

so naturally, i've run a speedo and disconnected the abs. problem is that if you run one wheel disconnected, you lose the entire system.

question: i've got the VSS running off the rear right sender. could i run the rear LEFT abs signal into the rear left AND rear right channel? will this work? it would just mean that i don't have abs on the rear right wheel but... big deal. at least i'll get it back on the front two wheels.

it all sounds plausible in my head but i just haven't tried it yet. obviously don't want to waste my time if it won't work but i don't see why not.

anyone got any input for me?

i assume that the signal from the sensor is square wave 5v.

a single op-amp can be wired in to buffer that signal, giving it enough balls to drive both inputs.

hell, even a single jfet follower could do it.

you could have your cake and eat it too...

They're amplifiers, basically, but there's a reason I went into mechanical and not electrical engineering I'm sure there are competent 'how-tos' around the Interwebs somewhere.

Wiring them up isn't too terribly tricky, just doing mathematical analysis on them can be.
