  1. Hi guys, I'm looking for a bit of friendly advice on some problems I'm having with my new Focus. I bought an 08 plate 1.8 TDCi a couple of weeks ago, and I've really enjoyed having the car (and the MPG - I'm coming from a 2l Petrol!); but recently the ESP light came on - and has stayed on. Quick trip back to the garage where I bought the car and the diagnosis showed codes u1900 + c1288. The fix for which is apparently a shiny new ABS unit (failure in the pressure sensor unit) - and me £1500 lighter. Now, putting to one side the discussions I'm having with the garage (car was purchased 6 weeks prior to the fault) My question is this: I've managed to get a hold of a second hand ABS Unit, code 3M512M110JA This came from a 57-plate 1.8 Petrol: will this part no. be a suitable replacement for my unit? I've had a look and it looks like a battery-out job to replace the unit (can't even see enough of the existing unit to see what part number is in there) - I have the Sony head unit (the car is Titanium spec) - will I need a code from the dealer? Look forward to your responses, James
