Hi Ms.Hays Lee,

I'm assuming you're planning on using connectors something like these.

Wires going to engine sensors tend to carry very little current, so I would use the smallest connector that comfortably fits over the wires and allows the two stripped ends to overlap in the middle. The general case for butt connectors is that red is the smallest, usually meant for wire gauges from 22 to 16 AWG, blue is the middle size for 16-14 AWG wires, and yellow the largest for 12-10 AWG. So it's really the size of the wire that's usually used as the guideline for the butt connectors rather than the amount of current (wattage) going through them.

For sensors, I'm comfortable recommending the red ones; they will almost certainly do the job just fine.

If you want to get fancy, there are also connectors like these below that have heat shrink material instead of the plain plastic outside; you crimp them then heat them up to seal the ends to help keep water and contaminants from getting into the wire and corroding it. Not a bad idea for wires inside the engine compartment.

Good luck with your repair!

I did use the red one and I did repair the problem after using the butt connectors to connect the wires back and using a OBS device to clear the code everything is back to normal now I have to figure out how to get the ABS error light turned off. Which was on when I got the car.

Awesome! If you are looking for help with your ABS light, you might want to consider starting another question specifically about that; you should get some good advice on that.

The ABS system is generally specific to a particular car line and isn't something a generic OBD-II reader can access, but there will be codes if you can find a way to read them.

The most common problem I've seen with them is a wheel speed sensor failure; there's one on each wheel and they're down there exposed to all kinds of weather conditions.

If you can find someone with a code reader that can access your car's ABS system, that will be the fastest way to track down the problem. A dealer can most assuredly do it, but of course they'll charge a premium price for that service. You can also call around to auto repair shops near you and ask if they can read the ABS codes on your car for you. Finally, check the internet, maybe starting with eBay for ABS code readers that will work with your car; some of them may be relatively inexpensive.
