Re: ABS on, but not working (diff locks?)
In a message dated 96-12-10 00:52:15 EST, you write:
<< Possibly related:
I tried engaging the diff locks to see if the "ABS off" light functions
normally. When I go to position 1, surprisingly, I get no diff lock
light, hmmmm.( I checked the bulb-its OK) and the "ABS off" light DOES NOT
illuminate. When I go to position 2, just that diff lock light illuminates,
and the "ABS off" light also illuminates--as normal, except for the position
1 light-not on.
Could a problem in the diff lock cause the ABS not to work at all?
Any ideas on how to proceed on the diff lock function? >>
Sounds like you have a ripped boot for the center lock diaphram... Replace
it, try again... For your abs situation, sounds like the sensors are too
close to the driveshafts..... Make sure you are getting a voltage (AC) from
the sensor when you spin the wheel... Surprised at this one.... Usually the
system easily defaults to off... Also, if the driveshaft splines are shot, a
good reading, no abs.... Hard to believe that all 4 are gone tho...
