ABS light on all the time

Post by ICFM » Mon Mar 14, 2005 11:08 am

Hi folks

Just thought I'd pass on the details of a recently solved problem.

For a couple of days the ABS warning light has been on constantly. This has happened before, but resolved itself with no outside interference (my kinda problem :wink: ) However, this light wasn't going away.

The only work done on the car recently was new tyres, oil change and air filter.

So after spending most of Saturday afternoon upside down in the footwell checking fuses and relays, I took off the air filter housing and took off and reconnected the connector block attached to the ABS pump (?). Viola problem solved.

It's not often I manage to fix something like this, so couldn't resist sharing!
