got any ideas the garage said the abs is not talking to the ecu but its all
chinese to me i not that clued up on cars and grateful for any information
stef, stef, break those sentences down man..............my oxygen sensor
came on just reading them.
With so many connectors and cables in a system, 100% manual tracking can be
almost impossible. This said you would not expect straight run, hidden
cables to be the problem.
Your man will be looking for a loose or corroding connector somewhere. As it
seems ABS/Traction related, the wiring behind each wheel is the starting
place. There are connectors at these locations so a disassembly and clean
with electrical contact spray might cure the problem.
