non abs hub on a abs truck? abs light on.

I just bought an 03 f350 yesterday and noticed it had an abs light on . I asked the guy and he said he blew a wheel bearing on a road trip and whereever he brought it they only had a non abs hub. Well my problem is that where I live I need to get a saftey inspection done on the truck and an abs light is going to be a problem . So my question is , is there a way to put an abs sensor on a non abs hub , I'm thinking no. And if not can I jump the wire out somehow to make the dash light go out or just pull a fuse. I don't want to replace the hub cuz there so expensive. An help would be great thx in advance.

If the sensor spot is in the hub you can add the sensor for about 40 bucks

The non ABS hub does not have a tone ring for the sensor to pick up. The sensor cost almost as much as the hub if it needs to be replaced. The only way I can think of to disable it is to flash the PCM to a rear wheel ABS setup.
