Default ABS module

I have a 2002 Kia Sedona and the problem is the ABS and foot brake lights are always on. There is a continuous beeping sound while you drive. It is not a problem with the brake fluid. I was told that the ABS module had to be replaced but it is really expensive, around $1300. Might be there's another solution?

Default Sedona ABS problem

I have a 2004 2.9Crdi SE auto. About 18 months ago the ABS light came on every time I did 70mph for more than a few minutes. The main dealer replaced the n/s/f sensor and speed sensor. Didn't work. Replaced ABS unit/pump. Didn't work. Eventually (they said) found hairline crack in ABS ring on drive shaft. Fitted new drive shaft which cured light problem but left me with the ABS cutting in too early (10-20mph). Another ABS unit fitted better but not quite right but light still out. Tested ABS on slippery surface. Worked fine. Strange that KIA no nothing about this cutting in early problem but several motoring magazines (inc Auto Express) do. Decided live with it because brakes work fine even when it occasionally cuts in early and I didn't want the dealer making it worse or bugger up my tracking again! . Guess what. Did 70mph last week. You've got it the ruddy ABS light came on again. At least when its on the ABS wont misbehave. Stopping and restarting puts the light out so should be ok for MOT test.Now warranty is out it can stay like it,but its bloody annoying. Anybody got any ideas.? Regards John.

Natrist, sounds to me like you have two separate faults. My guess is the brake warning light and warning chime you have are associated with the parking brake - probably the switch under the handbrake lever. The abs will need proper diagnostics using the appropriate reader. Only thing I'd check ahead of that are connections to all four sensors and maybe give every sensor head and reluctor ring a clean with a soft brush and brake cleaner.
Good luck.

Just Behind The Front Break Disc Guard On End Of Drive Shaft You Will See What Looks Like A Cog With Teeth On It That Is The Abs Sensor Pick Make Sure There Are No Teeth Missing If There Is Then Replace The Cogged Ring You Can Buy Them From Kia For Aroung £15. You Have To Remove The Front Disc And Hub .

It Solved The Same Problem You Have On Your Car


Hope This Helps
