Car has just failed its mot due to the ABS dash light not coming on at all!!
I've searched lots of threads, forums, and googled my weekend away trying to find an answer.
Did the gauge test and tried illuminating all the LEDs (test 3) and even The ABS led doesnt come on. Any idea what wrong?
Ive had the PCB out and cleaned it without success. I'm convinced the led is blown could there be anythig else causing this.
Just want to know before I get bit with a very expensive repair!!!!!

Thanks for the reply and I've seen this company.
However, if it's just the led that's blown I can get that fixed for less than £10
Not sure if the instrument cluster is broken or something else, hence me posting.

I might give this company a call in the morning
Cheers

is it only the ABS?

 

Although you had it out to clean it, did you check for a piece of black electric tape over the front of the bulb? its unlikely to be there, but its so sneaky it can easily fit in there and be overlooked!

Yeah looks like it's just the abs. Would there be any others that are likely to go with it?

Didn't see any tape and I'm 99% sure the light used to come on when starting the car (like it should)

Sound like the led. If ur any good with solder just change the led and see if it fixes it. If you have a diagnostic tool as well check if you can communicate with the abs module.

Thanks for the responses guys. Really appreciate it. Car is in at the garage today just for a diagnostic (and a little bit of work) so they're going to rest each led and let me know.

Fingers crossed!!!

Not looking good guys :(
PCB is now with my local friendly repair man.
LED seem to show a current when he tested it - fook!!!!
I'll up date when I get a definite answer :(

Looks like I might be having beans on toast for the rest of the month

Oh, on a good note, the abs is working just not the light.
Diagnostics showed nothing and communicated with the module so that's good news I guess

Yeah, I still think that's the problem but why would the guys test meter show it working (having a current anyway)
He's gonna do a proper test later and get them to light up individually.
Hopefully and all my fingers and toes are crossed that the led has gone
