Default Help with pulling ABS fuse

I was going to pull the ABS fuse, but noticed there was 2 of them. One for solenoid, one for something else. Can someone please help me on which exact fuse to pull.

Thanks in advance

I yank the 20amp fuse behind the coin holder if i recall correctly its the 2nd from left 2nd row from bottom. and yes ur abs light will light up. Remember to put back in when snow dries or god forbid an accident happens you don't want insurance problems if the abs didn't work. Good luck hope this helps. Needlenose pliers work wonders.

If you put blown fuse in, isn't their still a light that comes on? Dunno if you can really say "gee didn't know fuse blew" if there is a light on.

just a thought.

If it's because you totalled the car sliding into a tree, no they won't check. If it's because you ran over a young mother and newborn baby, then yeah, they're probably gonna check.
