GTV speedo not working, ABS warning on
Hi there, hope you can help me...
I have a 2000 GTV 2.0. A few months ago it was slowly leaking brake fluid but not serious so I left it, topping up from time to time.
Last week the speedo stopped working and the ! warning light and ABS warning light came on. The brakes seemed fine so I carried on driving for a couple of days, the brakes started feeling spongy and unresponsive.
I took it to local independent who said that the gator needed replacing (I knew that), but that would probably not fix the problem as it also probably needed a new ABS system, but they woullnd't be able to diagnose until the gator was replaced. Problem is, a new ABS system would cost a lot more than the car is worth. If I fix the gator then it still needs the ABS replacing I've wasted my money.
I have been told by someone who claims to know what he's taking about that it's highly unlikely the ABS needs reaplacing, just the speed sensors. What do you reckon and how pricey is it?
By the way, I also have a 2001 156 2.0 which has just broken down with an inetrmittent cut out of electricity to fuel injector. The GTV is in mint condition, the 156 not so good, could the 156 be canibalised to repair the GTV?
Thanks a lot!!
