ABS light on

Hi guys,

I've got an OBD reader on order, nowt fancy, one of these:


It's because I've got an ABS light up on the dash, no other lights and everything is working OK. I'm guessing (hoping) it's a wheel sensor at fault. Will the reader show the specific sensor at fault or will it just show there is a sensor failed?

Thanks, also is there anything else I can check in the mean time, the brakes are working just fine and dandy, zero issues (apart from the light of course!)

Hmmm, just been reading up on OBD scanners and it looks like the biudget friendly ones do not show ABS codes!

Re: ABS light on

So, after further reading and investigating it does indeed look like the basic readers do not output Airbag or ABS codes.
This looks to be the cheapest one out there that does ABS and SRS:

Re: ABS light on

I'm in Kent, right near the Channel Tunnel entrance, flippin' miles away from anyone!
I've got to get a new clutch fitted soon so I'll call my local garage up and see if they can run a scan for m, they're pretty good for doing little jobs for nothing if they're doing a big job.

I have one of those. ABS air bags. It would be fantastic if you could also turn things on as well, which multiecuscan does. It is convenient though.
