I own a 1994 MPV. For the first time ever, when driving along, suddenly the "Anti-Lock Braking System" light came on, and stays on. What does this mean? I can find nothing about it in the useless owner's manual

Please help a.s.a.p.

thanks
richard

Turn your key to the on posistion, and wait to see if the "ABS" light starts to flash. If not, There should be a gray single pin connector on the driver side fenderwall. Unhook that and jump the grey/white side to a ground momentarily when it is grounded then the ground broken the light should start flashing. either way, these are the codes--

(2,3,4,)-Hydraulic unit

(6)-Ring gear speed sensor

(7,8,)-Hydraulic unit

(9.10)-Ring gear speed sensor

(11)-Stoplight switch

(13,14,15)-Control unit

There are flow charts for all of these. This is just a place to start.
Very Happy

OU812 - I take it that after 93 model, some things changed on the MPV... or does this apply to the earlier models as well? You are such a wealth of info there friend, it would be a real boon if you had a simple digicam to share some photos with us all... not pressing, just hopin - one day...

I take it you have the full workshop manual?

Kiwi, Just checked my '91 manual. It's the same codes for that also, just a different connector on the front. The '91 has a 3 pin blue connector.
On that one, if you hold the connector so the horizontal pin is down you ground the pin on the left. Very Happy Got a manual for both, problem is, they tell you what to do on some things, and not on others. Like, they will tell you what to ground for this, but not the engine or the hold codes.

I don't know Go figure!

The numbers in (), are they the number of flashes of the ABS indicator on the dash console?


Right now, ours is flashing when the engine is running. I believe it turns on and then flashes 3 times.

check and make sure (when it comes on) that it is not a "long flash" which would be considered as a 10 followed by three flashes 3- which would make it a 13 it should repeat the same as it would with the cpu. But "yes" it is the ABS light that flashes. let me know which it is, 3 or 13 and I will check the flow charts for you.
