Hmmm ABS warning light on!

The ABS warning light on my 2.0TS Gtv has just come on. I'm guessing that it's probably a sensor problem but have noticed the large wiring plug that connects to the ABS unit does not fit very snug. Anyone had any ABS similar problems with their Gtv? I'm guessing this is on for the garage to sought out.

Is that plug actually loose then? could be a bad connection there.

Have you had each wheel off and looked for road dirt etc around the sensors? I use to have this problem on an Astra GTE, the 'steps' that the sensor read use to build up with mud, a good clean up with a stiff brush use to sort it out, not sure if the GTV's design is the same though. Still worth checking those sensors, they are magnetic so small particles can build up over time.

Fiat ecu scan connects to diagnostics of ABS as follows:

- Bosch ABS 5.7 VDC/ASR/TC
- Bosch ABS 8 VDC/ASR
- Lucas EBC 430 ABS
- Bosch ABS 5.3

If your car has any of these then that would be a good way to fault find.

Thanks for the advice on my ABS problem. Always a bit apprehensive about doing my own mechanics but sounds like they are within my ability. Cheers.
