ABS light on
« on: June 10, 2018, 03:21:40 pm »
So F800 suddenly started showing its ABS light permanently. Trying disconnecting battery, tried cleaning the sensors. No joy. Traction control still works normally. Any ideas? Anyone in Randburg area with a GS911 I could use to diagnose? At your house of course :)

Mine did it once too. Turned out to be a dirty ring.. Meant that the sensor wasn't picking up the signal properly  :thumleft:

Just an update. I wiped my ring clean before leaving the office - it didn't change anything, but then, on the way home I stopped to check tyre pressures and pumped both to 2.3. When I started the ignition it worked again. So, not sure if the computer was slow in detecting the clean ring - or if it was the pressures, but either which way.

In case anyone else is searching for a similar issue, this worked worked for me.

Clean both ABS sensors - clean both ABS rings - Check tyre pressure.

Thanks for the advice guys!
