ABS Scan tool.

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

Does anyone recommend a scan tool which reads ABS codes? The ABS, Tyre pressure, Steering, and traction control lights all come on one after the other during a journey. Switching off the engine and restarting removed them, but they would return; they are now on permanently. A friend tried to find a code using his scan tools to no avail, as he suspects they do not recognise the car. He says I need a scan tool that will identify the codes. The lights went off a couple of days ago, but came back on after driving it about a quarter of a mile. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Hi just be careful - I had my air-con diagnosed by a specialist local company - they used a scanner through the OBD socket (under the dash) now the ABS and VSA lights come on after reaching 30 mph and stay on ! I  have found a link on youtube on how to reset using pins 9 & 4 on the OBD socket using a paperclip to bridge them in sequence - I have not tried it yet but from what I have read it is a known problem with some cars - and mine seems to be one of them, there was no problem prior to the scanner, so just be aware. Good luck !
