I don't know the exact speed I was spinning, but it was by hand and pretty fast. The meter didn't budge. I tried the left front which is a new bearing (black ring inboard towards sensor) and on the right rear wheel which the bearing and hub was purchased preassembled from Ford (Trousley). Spinning by hand with the wheel installed as fast as I can and the meter didn't change.

If I read for ohms across the sensor, I only get a reading if I put the probes on a particular way, almost like it is a diode.

The ABS light wasn't on before I started the project. I removed/inspected all 4 sensors, installed, no visual damage. I checked all 4 connectors, connected.
I drove the vehicle after replacement. I tried disconnecting the battery before, but it didn't didn't reset. I tried again tonight, but nothing.
