It seems there is a brown fuse in a housing on top of the battery that is part of the ABS system, although it doesn't look like a standard fuse - it is a flat metallic plate with the brown fuse in the middle held down by two screws. Cost £1.12 to replace and 'Bob is your Marley' I have ABS again.

Was planning on selling a kidney to pay for a new ECU.:)

Thanks to CJ Romeo for his advice.

Hope this helps.

Was the warning light on? just wondered as I'm not entirely sure the ABS on the spider is working, keep meaning to go for a quiet street and slam on just to test it but haven't got round to it.

You can also try just 'feathering' the brake peddle gently over a bumpy surface, that will usually fool the ABS into kicking in momentarily!

Both the ABS & EBD lights came on the day after I bought the car, did a brake test and the neither was working. ABS definitely works now.

Maybe, but just remember that ABS can't help you if there's no traction to be had. We wouldn't want you rolling into a tree or something! ;)
