Alfa gtv 2.0ts 1996 - abs fault - help!
Hi guys......wondering if anyone has experienced abs problems with a 96 alfa gtv?? And if so, i need your help desperately!
Took the car for an mot last week and it failed becuase the abs light was on, the guy plugged the car in to a snap on scanner and pulled out the following codes:
05 - valve relay
17 - ecu defect
can anyone interpret these? From what i have found out from various sources code 17 points to a valve problem on the osf, does this mean sensor? I have checked the sensor and it seems ok. I have also checked the fuse at the battery (apparently this 60a fuse is a common fault?!). Someone has mentioned it might be a relay but both relays for the abs are integral to the abs control unit!
Have now drawn a complete blank. Everything seems to be pointing towards the control unit but i know these are costly so if anyone else has experienced something similar and has some suggestions i'll be very grateful!
Is it likely to be the abs control unit? If so, alfa say they dont produce these any more so is there anyone that can recondition mine?
Help guys.........mot runs out tomorrow!!!!
