Pontiac Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome. What are you using to check for the codes?
Actron OBD II scanner
NO, the scanner you have is very specific to read only emission codes. This means only codes that would turn the check engine light on.
I will continue to answer your follow up questions about this ABS light issue.
It simply means there is an ABS fault. Both lights will go out when the issue is corrected.
So what you are teeling me is that someone with ABS testing scanner will have to tell me what the problem is. Are there some common faults that I can check first? Can I check for the continutity of the ABS sensor in the wheel bearing? Maybe where a wire might be loose? etc.?
I honestly think the issue is one of the sensors or the harness from the body to the sensor. The module is not common on these for failing.
You will be able to read our discussion at any time.
Follow the wires is the simple part. Another thought just hit me, the wiring to the right rear goes above the muffler and it could have fallen down. A good visual inspection is where to start. I will be around tomorrow so reply if you need.
Can I contact you through a link in the e-mails I am getting? This is the first time I have used an internet question & answer session. I does seem like a good way to get answers when you are not sure of the next step when trouble shooting problems.
No problem I remember those days. My baby is now 15 and they grow up too fast. Enjoy them while you can. I know everyone probably tells you this, but that is because it is so true. My oldest graduates from the university next semester. The Lord blessed me with four great kids.
Talk to you tomorrow. I will let you know the problem when I find it so we will complete this circle.
The newer ones have upwards of 30 modules, so the number of codes is insane and they are also making the codes alpha-numeric as well, like Pa12B and the new scan tools are a laptop with interface.
Yes, you can be sure that we did all we could with out a scan tool.
