Hi thanks for the answer but i feel i need to be able to communicate with you over email regarding this problem. please let me know when we can exchange emails without long time delays.
the problem i have is that i dint get an ABS light upon ignition. i have checked the fuse all ok, checked the bulb in the dash all ok.
i have checked the abs pump by firing the relay from op-com diag software and makes the same sound when travelling for the first ten minutes.
although not a mechanic on a scale of 1-10 as a diy mechanic i would put myself down as a 7-8 so you can talk technical.
have only had the car for three weeks and had a 12mth mot when i bought it. during the test drive i knew there was a few faults but know i could fix them. No the abs light was not present when i bought it.
there was only one fault code in the abs which showed front lh wheel sensor.
but doidnt think this would lead to a light not being on
No. when i turn on ignition i get engine managment light, handbrake, battery,oil, airbag and fuel.
the airbag light goes out after a couple of seconds which is what i would expect from the abs. as i say i have checked all associated fuses and relays i think. 1. fuse panel 2. on top of abs pump. 3.dash bulb.
i have just put diag on car as i had reset fault codes after changing discs. it now says
C0035 left front wheel speed sensor incorrect signal (06) not present
C024 wheel speed sensor erratic signal (08) not present.
did you receive last reply?
i am new to the op-com style of mechanics im old school mechanical. im not sure exacltley what the codes/values are telling me, i can guess but dont want to guess wrong and cost me more money.
do i need to replace the reluctor rings or sensonrs or both?
and where do i need to start on the light?
Hi, i have just taken the car out with the op-com and recorded the values and the front lh is reading erratic and mis-matched by a couple of kph so will get a new sensor if after a clean up it dosent improve.
the dash light though i think i wll have to go back to basics and double check everything.
thanks for your help
