Electrical issue?

So, recently I'm having what seems like an electrical issue but I don't know what it is or how to diagnose what it could be. I had a couple lights pop on my dash, scanned the car and it said that I had an issue with my front right wheel speed sensor. Previously I had my left speed sensor go out and replacing the bearing fixed that issue, so I replaced the right assuming it would fix it. Turn the car on, same lights are on. I thought maybe cycling the power would achieve something, and then my car wouldn't start. It cranks but doesn't start. When it does start, the engine sounds awful (low idle, sputters). And I noticed at the same time my right headlight it out. Is this all a coincidence or could it be something else?

Thanks.

What do you mean you cycled the power?
What codes do you currently have?

Sorry, I mean turn the car off, open the door, and turn it on again. And I'm getting C0040-0F Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circut - Signal Erractic.

The wheel code has nothing to do with the engine.
No other codes?
Did this start after you changed the rf bearing?

That is the only code. It wasn't acting like this before the dash lights came on. And they came on coming from work. Took my wife's car to get the bearing so never had a chance to check

The dash lights are ABS and Traction control?

All those are,related to wheel code.
Have you checked fuel pressure regulator vacuum line for gasoline?

Where might that be located? It's a 2009 G6 2.4l. I pulled the engine cover off, is it the thing in the picture?

Looking at the details of that engine, I dont see a engine compartment regulator.
Any chance when you did the RF bearing you accidentally disconnected a wire or vacuum line?

Only wire that could be disconnected around where I was working is the wire for the sensor.

Code went away randomly? We'll see if it comes back...
