ABS Light and loud ticking sound

Hey

A while ago the ABS light come on in me ED. Also when it comes on u can hear a loud tickin (wit window open) from the frnt right wheel. But sometimes the light never comes on and there is no ticking sound.

Any ideas on what this could be? I have taken the wheel off and checked all the lil magnets on the disc. None seem to be loose and i took the sensor out n gave it a clean and didn't make a difference.

Also how do i check the circuit with the under dash connector??? What do i connect to what lol.

Thanks
Matt

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

Just had a thought there should be a relay I guess under the bonnet (i think under the radiator reserve tank) for the ABS, maybe it needs replacing, and if it was not latching properly and going on and off, would sound like a tick and would sound like the front right wheel as well, and should cause the ABS light to come on as well.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

Does the sound get faster with speed, or just a constant tick regardless of speed.

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

It goes faster wit speed. That is why i checked the magnets behind the lil abs disc. they all seemed glued on still.

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

hey BunD,

Nah it not a wheel bearing, I checked them when I had the wheel off to check the sensor and the magnets.

And there wasn't any damage to the sensor as if it was rubbing on the little ABS disc thing (whatever they r called).

It has me beat. I am thinkin of gettin DBA slotted n Xdriled rotors soon neways so hope that will fix it. Anyone else have ne ideas

Also how could i TOTALLY deactivate the ABS I hate it.
I can drive and brake heaps better witht the abs not working. I want to put a switch in so i can turn it back on in the wet. That is the only time i have found it any good.

Thanks
Matt

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

I think it would be unwise to switch it off mate, in my EF the ABS saved my life a few times as well as very expensie panel beater bills. And most of the close moment's weren't in the wet! It could be my wild driving style but I heavily rely on the ABS to save me from myself. I an actually steer with the brake pedal mashed to the firewall around corners and i better shut up ... but I'd advise you to keep your ABS on :)

EF Futura, XR6 spec head, lowered, T5 conversion, 2.5" catback, AU XR8 snorkle w/ K&N

There is a war inside my head, if I take a day off I'll die!

This cat, is cat, a cat, good cat, way cat, to cat, keep cat, a cat, idiot cat, busy cat, for cat, 20 cat, seconds cat! Now read it all without the word cat!

Re: ABS Light and loud ticking sound

hey zbenga,

Yeah some ppl do drive better wit ABS but i reckon i drive better witout it. I done a advanced driving course and they could turn the abs on n off and i actually done better than wit it on. Dunno why but yeah.

Also I reckon the ABS in your EF would be better designed than in my ED. In my car it lets go for like 1 sec n i hate it,

Neways thanks for ya opinion

If you want to disable it just unplug one or more of the sensors. OR put a switch inline with the fuse.
