Re: Abs fault

Got a similar problem myself if anyone can help.
on pulling away i had a slight loss of traction on the n/s front wheel and it threw up the abs light and esp warning faults. Ive checked the sensor is still in place and that the ring is still in situ and not moving and both seem fine, ive tried the unplug and clean method and no change. Im at too mind wether to just buy a new sensor for 30 and try it but want some advice first.

Re: Abs fault

The magnetic ring is built into the bearing and the sensor clips onto a metal ring right next to the bearing, make sure that the sensor hasn't been bent out somehow.

If one wheel rotates faster than the others it will register an ABS fault, but this should self cancel once the car has been driven a few yards at around 20mph...not sure if the ESP makes a difference to this?

Details of how to test the sensor in the link I posted.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.

Re: Abs fault

Thank you for replying.
My friend fitted the bearing and we used a press, as far as i know we fitted the bearing in the correct way round.
We did the os one yest and the bearing came with the metal ring for the sensor.
The previous one didnt.!!!!!
Still have the brake pedal sinking slowly when pressed prob pressed pedal to floor.
using a machine to bleed next week so will replace master cyl as well.
