After having sorted out the handbrake issues, I'm still having trouble passing the annual inspection.

The car has failed the inspection for the ABS light not coming on on turning the ignition on, ie during the self test period.

I've looked at KGIS and have gone through the ABS troubleshooting guide self-diagnosis procedure.

I have followed the 'if Hi/Scan pro is not available' part of the procedure and used a jumper cable to ground between pins i and r of the diagnostics connector.

On turning the ignition on in anticipation of seeing a fault code series displayed there was no flashing of the ABS light at all.

The checking functionality part of the diagnostics asks to verify if the ABS light comes on and then extinguishes, and if not then go to detail inspection, but I'm not sure where to look for the detailed inspection!

Could this mean simply that the ABS light has blown, or is there something here that I am missing.

I cannot remember if the ABS light was functioning before I did the work on the handbrake (which included replacing drums etc) and neither can the inspecting garage. If there was a fault with the ABS system (one of the sensor rings had a gouge worn around it from the handbrake actuating arm contacting it) I'm assuming the ABS warning light would come on and a fault code would be visible through carrying out the self diagnosis??

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks in advance.

Dave

Try changing the lamp it is not hard to do 2 screws and some clips all around the dash and it pulls out it could be just a bulb or bad connection. good luck you did the jumper and the light did not blink i hope it is that simple for you the ecm checks the light when you turn the key after that it's up to the abs to make it blink .

I've checked the bulb and that is working (I swapped it around with a couple of other bulbs to check and it's fine).

I've ordered a couple of sensor rings to replace the ones on the rear drums (the only ones I've disturbed) and as said before one of them has some radial damage on.

Thanks for all the help so far.

It's a bit of a puzzle as I can't work out why the light isn't coming on at all, even in self test when the ignition is turned on!

Will let you know how I get on.

Regards
Dave
