Abs Light On

Recommended Posts

I have a 1998 Avensis 2.0 GLS. Recently the ABS light came on and stayed on. Took it to be diagnosed but no fault codes were present and all of the wheel sensors gave the correct readings. I have had the pump/ecu unit replaced with a second hand one which worked on it's old vehicle but still the light refuses to go out. Is there anything obvious which is being overlooked? Me and my mechanic are out of ideas!

TRy checking the 5A Ign fuse behind coin box dash panel near steering wheel. if its blown and blows again it looks like an electrical problem.

I tracked the same fault on my 1998 Avensis 1.8 to a blown 5A IGN fuse located in dash fusebox behind coinbox. No other circuits were affected apart from ABS light constantly on and unable to communicate with systems. Once replaced, ABS light functioning ok. No problems since.

i had exactly the same problem and nobody knew what it was. After thinking about it, i decided to chek the fuses beside the steering wheel. I found a fuse had gone and after replacing it the light was gone.

Hope this helps....

What a thread.

I have had the cooling fans not working and then (when I out a new bulb in) the ABS light on.

:help:

Looked at this and lo and behold the fuse IN 5A in the coinbox fuse box was blown.

:thumbsup:

Swapped it out and bingo!! BOTH faults fixed.

:toast:

Thanks for saving me hours of testing and fiddling around. I am delighted.

I had exactly these symptoms and 3 garages coiuld get no diagnostic readings. Elsewhere in this forum, there was a note which said check fuse 26 behind the storage box below and right of the steering wheel. I did and the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and yes the light worked as it should, thereby saving the £1200 odd pounds that Toyota would have charged to replace the entire ABS system. John Robinson

Many thanks. Local Toyota specialist stumped, but I've just checked mine with same abs/cooling fan fault, and the fuse has blown. Too late to get a new fuse today, but confident will be fixed tomorrow!

Many thanks for the advice.
