:@ bad weekend followed by bad start to the week.
So, over the weekend,I took a drive to our local asda, after around 2 miles, the ABS light came on and stayed on. Checked the DTC Codes:
U0415 - Invalid Data Received From Anti-Lock Brake System Control Module (my suspicions where a duff sensor or one needed cleaning)
P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction (ties in with the above, http://www.obd-codes.com/p0500)
C1145 - Wheel speed sensor RF input circuit failure (ties in with the sensor issue)
B1317 - Battery Voltage High
U1900 - CAN communication Bus Failure
Had a wander round Asda, came back and on heading back home, the ABS light went away...
Thinking that it might just be a sensor, I got in the car this morning hoping that all would be well. Got in, drove away and just as I am up to speed on the motorway the error comes back:
car is in manual mode, 5th gear, and with no fluctuation of power to my right foot, the revs surge, then drop, the ABS and Brake lights flash, then the car goes back to normal. Then a minute later, it does the same thing again, then recovers again.
Third time unlucky - whole car just dies!! no electrics, the only exception is a nut job flashing immobiliser light like I just used the wrong key to try and start the car. Everything else is dead (expect the 12v outlet!) the screens go, indicators, everything. Pulled up on the side of the motorway, disconnected the battery, reconnected after a minute or so (rush hour on the side of the motorway trying to fix your bus - NOT much fun!)
Anyway, got her started. got to the nearest petrol station and after topping up, checked the error codes, on top of the above (hadn't cleared it since yesterday) I now have:
B1318 - Battery Voltage Low
B2286 - +5V Reference Fault? or SIM Card Failure? or MODE switch sticking
So... This looks fun!
