Recently I had this ABS light pop on my dashbaord while driving at 80kms at Shahrah-e-Faisal, gave me scare when I wasn't able to decelerate my car quick enough to avoid collision with the new white cultus driving ahead of my car. Thats something I will remember for a while. Parked the car at a nearby spot and turned the car off, restarted it after taking a few deep breaths and the ABS light came on during ignition as it normally would and went away after the initial boot-up test.
The ABS light came back on when I was driving back home from work (the light didn't come up immediately after starting the car, it came up after about 10-15mins) and I could feel the ABS not working. Took the car to my mechanic, upon his inspection he said all the connections were in place and he needs to get the car scanned to find which sensor has gone bad, which I might get done today.
But before getting it scanned, I have noted a few things which I wanted to share here;
1. Before all this started (this was yesterday) I noticed my right back tyre had low air volume, so I got it back upto 30. And after a drive of about 10-15kms the ABS check light came on (this was the first instance).
2. Today in the morning again I noticed the same tyre had low air volume so I got back to 30 but from a different pump this time, after which the check light didn't come back through my drive of about 20kms and seemingly the ABS was working fine as well.
So what I am guessing here is that light comes on (and subsequently the ABS stops working) when the tyre air volume gets low? Or maybe its some malfunction and I should get it scanned asap.Similar Threads:
