ABS troubleshoot code readout

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

One more question before I pull the ABS codes. I think I remember reading somewhere that the left / right troubleshoot readout doesn't follow "normal" American convention. That the issue would actually be opposite. ie: if my code tells me left front that it is actually the passenger side and not the driver's side. The ALDL readout is based on forward looking back as if standing in front of the car. Am I correct?

My code readout directed me to left rear. I unplugged the lead and found a bad connection. One of the pin sockets was pushed in probably causing a failed connection. I fixed the connection but now have to wait until I get my brake parts to reassemble then I can drive it over 18 MPH, as per the FSM, to reset the ABS light. (unless there's another problem)

When the brake job is finished, you must again check for codes, verify none, then drive to clear the memory.

Good for you that it was such an easy fix. When we rebuild them that is something I try to pay close attention to [the pins sliding back].

I've got my fingers crossed that was all!
