well it could be, trace the wires down to the wheel, did you clear the code and read the values when you were driving and where they the same as the other wheels?

If I recall correctly those just might be it! Go look in the wheel well and you will see where the plug is that the wires go into, and just pull it out and see if they are still connected.

those are incredibly small wires for fog lights, they really look like the hood sensor wires, tells the alarm when the hood is shut, the switch should be on the core support on the drivers side kinda near the center
