First thing to check is the fuses... you'll have to check the 2005 Owner's Manual for location as there will be on Gen1 an ABS control fuse 7.5A and an ABS motor fuse likely 30A. If one of those is blown or corroded, ABS may not be functioning... but they will have to be good to run the test, as well as a fully charged battery.
If the fuses are good and the test won't run (I assume you are following the instructions with my test harness) then there are deeper issues with the ABS pump... keep an ear for noises at the pump (i.e., it makes some), and if it blows fuses.
I would think the test will run regardless of your sensor issue. With test harness switch turned on or if using a shorting method, put hand on lever and foot on pedal, then turn on the ignition.... should cycle both front and rear if all is normal.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
