ABS light comes on when its raining (only)
this ABS light coming on problem has occurred only in the last three weeks and it has been raing out when it comes on...
My hunch is that rain water is shorting some relay out at one of the wheels...
the car is fine and the lights off other than this situation with the rain.
any insights on what may be the root of this evil ? Or is it to the contrary, and that evil is not playing a role in this matter ?
My ABS was on/off for some time before it failed..
completely. Had it tested twice using bmw hardware and they claimed the main control module had died. Moisture/weather and driving conditions all seemed to play a role before it failed completely. But I think it was more random then anything else.
But you could have a short somewhere considering you're exp. your problem in high humidity/rain. Have you checked all four corners?
Hit anything on the road lately? cones at the autoX?
I have parts off a 99 if you need
Not sure what year you have. I have pump and control unit off Project99 if you need them.
hmmm, how many miles on the parts?
I have a 1999 (10/98 build) 2.8L with the ASC system.
I would probably need both those parts. what would you like for them, and can you guess the total weight?
I found your frankn coupe page.
You commented on the ASC system and suggested the Delete kit. Is that more for track coupes? I don't really MISS the ASC system at all, never used it really. ABS is always nice to have though.
so these parts have about 36k on them?
Re: hmmm, how many miles on the parts?
Less than 40K total miles. email me.
would this relay failure not spit out a code?
the dealer ran the codes, they claim the main control unit. perhaps a relay could block signal to the main unit and then inturn spit out a code saying the main control unit is dead?
Re:THANKS GUYS... i"ll check out the relay under
the steering column sometime soon. Actually the lights been off now for over a week or so... but then again we haven't had any heavy rain since the time I posted this message originally... supposably there's a strom coming threw tomorrow. So when the rains come to their heaviest downpour I'll go out for a test ride to validate the rain as being the instigator.
