Re: ABS Control unit
Here again ... '88 5kCSQW
I've been dealing with a solid on ABS light for a little while now ...
so I thought I'd try to resolve it before the trip. I had already
attempted a swap of the power relay from a working car to no avail.
Bentley also states that it is important to have the D+ line from the
alternator connected. I confirmed this voltage looks good last night.
I checked the resistance of the sensors per Bentley as well ... all 4
look good. The symptom is that when the car is started the ABS OFF
light never turns off, so I don't suspect any sensors in any case.
I'm getting to the point that I'm thinking its a problem inside the
ABS control box. Has anyone out there delved into one of these? If
so, are there any fuses or other known failure points inside?
I am not sure of the system on this model car, but when you lock the
diffs, is the abs supposed to be turned off(I know my '90 200 wagon does
this, but it's torsen). Maybe a signal from a diff lock switch is giving
it a false reading and the abs is switching off because of it?
