Hey guys, I'm having an issue with my vehicle's ABS sensor. I was driving around one day when the ABS light came on, so I went and got it checked, realizing that the error from the diagnostic scan said, "Front Left ABS Sensor Short/Break".
Upon inspection, apparently the clamp that held the ABS sensor's wire in tact, had fallen off and the wire was rubbing so much on the wheel axle that it had cut and broke off. I re-joined the wires, two of them, then strapped up the wire higher up so it won't drag, then went for a drive.
The light remained on so I had a guy try to clear the code. However, it still wasn't clearing. Then I was told the sensor might be bad. I would like to inspect it myself closely again and test it to see if it is actually bad, however, can you guys let me know if this is usual? or if there is any other way I can test it to figure out what the problem is?
Also, if the sensor is actually bad, where can I get a replacement, (other than the firm's price of almost $600), at a reasonable price?, or if any of you guys has a spare? And what other tips might you guys recommend I do?

Thanks for any advice.
