Got most of the bible, but still waiting to fiind the brakes module at a meet. replaced front discs / pads, (self), :P and after winding the old calipers back, putting the EBC greenstuff pads in :P things ain't right. :( Brake rollers said dont go out, but it was late, needed a beer. B) Any help with the bleeding would help. now get ABS warning tell tale after 5 min driving, brakes scary. Which voodoo do you need to speak to ABS!!!!! (Delco Moraine) , and how !!! The last Vauhall garage TECH 1 tool died a long time ago. S4 Derby Guy

Hi Keith

When are you getting the Abs light? after how long driving? is it flashing or steady?does it come on just after a brake application?did you loose fluid when changing your pads? are you loosing your brakes completely? can you hear your pump running after 5 pumps? i'm near Deby if you want a second opinion.

Cheers

Nick

Hi, thanks for reply. the ABS light is steady after approx 5 min driving. If you switch off takes about another 5 min to come on steady. Checked all connections/ relays, all seem ok. Can here pump running, but have lost the solid pedal, am now missing the brake pedal forcing itself back up when applying. Dont think i got any air in system when installing new pads/discs. Would like spec' on bleeding brakes to change fluid completely. Do you know how to get fault codes/ problems out of ABS? downloaded the Delco Moraine handbook, but the only one i can find is a bit generic. Ta
