You'll probably need an electric diagram of the ABS circuit on this car. It may use the brake control module for some aspects. Most brake switches have 2 actual switches in them, one for the light and one for the cruise control. But if your brake lights work, and the cruise dissengages when you press on the brakes the switch is ok. The ABS controller probably uses on output of the brake control module to sense brake application.
