Question 2005 Base Model ABS?

Hey guys,

I need to replace a front wheel bearing, not sure if my car has ABS though.
No user manual came with my used car. I have already bought the part assuming it has ABS. So the new wheel bearing does have the ABS connector. I dont want to take it all apart just to find that it doesnt have ABS and have bad luck trying to return the part just so they wont have the one i need in stock.

Does anyone know if there is some place i might be able to use my VIN to find out the information i need?

Thanks

If its a base 2005 model Im 99% sure that it doesnt have ABS and you bought the wrong part. Easy way to tell is just slam on your brakes. If the pedal is pulsing you got abs. Trust me you would know if you have abs or not.

crawl underneath and see if it has wires coming out the back of the wheel bearing, if it does then you have abs. or look under the hood and see if you have an abs box

look something like this i would i guess (mine dont have abs so i dont know for certain9

The ABS module is bolted to the rad support drivers side. Don't worry though because the ABS hub fits in the place of a non ABS hub. You just spent too much that's all if you don't have ABS.

the easiest way to check for ABS is to turn your key onto accessory before starting the ABS light should turn on and after a few seconds it will turn off...letting you know that ABS is working properly ....and im 99% that your hub can be installed just do not connect it...it would only be a problem if you had a ABS car and bought a non-ABS hub then you would get the light and the system would be deactivated with traction control as well...

My 2006 base G5 does not have ABS, finding that out for the first time was a bit of a shock. Brakes locked up in the wet and I stalled the motor. I believe it was optional on the base models (~$400).
