ABS light on a GT3

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

 

not been on for a while but can anyone help with the ABS light!!!

 

On all the time, no reason for it to come on!

 

It is a the V8 type breaking system on the later model,

 

any ideas or has any one got an idea where i can get it checked out around the Nottingham area!

 

thanks for your help!

At a guess I would say its a wheel sensor. Unfortunately you need too find someone with a Tech1 scanner, as Espritmon does not work with the later brake system, to be sure.

 

I would go around and clean the sensors / toothed wheel and connections as best as you can and while you are there take a reading from each one with a multi-meter then compare readings between each sensor and see if you can see a difference. Hopefully that will maybe fix the problem, although could be a temporary fix.

 

I believe the sensors and getting hard to get, they are handed and one side is unavailable from what I have heard. Now specialists are having to modify the mounting to fit the opposite side. They are often a pig to get out too!

 

Otherwise I would try Pete at PNM near Liverpool, GST in Newmarket or the factory! Sorry don't know anyone any closer to Nottingham who would have a Tech1.
