No ABS check light (even though ABS is working!)

27 March 2009 - 02:37 PM

Has anybody had any issues with the ABS on their Fiesta - I have a really wierd problem with the ABS check light on our 02 plate Fiesta. The ABS check light does not come on when you turn on the ignition and I would not really be that bothered but I have been told the car will fail it's MOT because of this. The strange bit is that the ABS seems to be working ok.

Things I have done so far :-

- Checked all ABS fuses and these are OK.
- Fault codes checked on engine ECU and ABS system - no ABS or ECU fault codes detected.
- Had the instrument cluster replaced with a new unit (also ran the test mode on the dash that turns on all the warning lights and the ABS light does come on!)

I am now starting to think that something strange must be going on with either the ABS unit or maybe the ECU even though they are not reporting any problems! I am starting to think that this is going to get expensive, the MOT is due next month so any tips or info much appreciated!!
