Much of the ABS troubleshooting work consists of con-
firming continuity of the wiring. The ABS parts are assem-
bled and adjusted by the manufacturer, so there is no need
to disassemble or repair them. Replace the ABS hydraulic
The basic troubleshooting procedures are listed below.
Carry out pre-diagnosis inspections as a preliminary in-
Determine the fault using the self-diagnosis function.
Check wiring and connections from the ABS hydraulic unit
connector to the suspected faulty ABS part, using a digital
Visually inspect the wiring for signs of burning or fraying.
If any wiring is poor, replace the damaged wiring.
Pull each connector [A] apart and inspect it for corrosion,
dirt and damage.
If the connector is corroded or dirty, clean it carefully. If it
is damaged, replace it.
Check the wiring for continuity.
Use the wiring diagram to find the ends of the lead which
is suspected of being a problem.
Connect the digital meter between the ends of the leads.
If the digital meter does not read about 0 Ω, the lead is
defective. Replace the main harness [B] if necessary.
Narrow down suspicious parts and close in on the faulty
ABS part by repeating the continuity tests.
If no abnormality is found in the wiring or connectors, the
ABS parts are the next likely suspects. Check each part
one by one.
If an abnormality is found, replace the affected ABS part.
