I am hoping for some advice.
I have been searching online but just end up chasing my tail.
I recently bought a 1994 2.0i Granada Scorpio
When starting the engine, the abs light comes on, and then goes out. When you drive away there is a slight vibration and the light comes on.
I began searching online for help.
I read somewhere that there is a three pin triangular shaped test socket next to the battery that if the two bottom pins were shorted with a paper clip and the ignition turned on, the light would blink codes.
This dis not work, I don't know what that socket is for, and hope I have not now damaged some electronics.
I started to look for a pre 1996 odb1 scanner, can't find any apart from innova 3145 bought from America that will not have the correct cables to connect to my car, and I can't find anywhere else to get a scanner, or the correct leads.
Going nowhere I jacked up the rear on axle stands, started the engine and put the automatic transmission into drive and depressed the accelerator.
The abs light did not come on, so I assumed the rear wheel speed sensors and anything to do with the gearbox (if anything) is ok.
I looked at the two front abs sensors, both looked old so I bought 2x new and had them fitted, but the problem is still there.
I should add that before this, although the cruise control light would illuminate, it would not work.
Since the new sensors have been fitted, or maybe since I shorted those pins on the connector next to the battery the cruise control light does not come on anymore.
I read that I can reset the abs by disconnecting the battery for at least 10 minutes, did that, no change.
I may now at last be on my way to resolving this.
I found another connector under the bonnet near the master cylinder, shorted the pins, only to be greeted by a plethora of fault codes.
They are, in order of light flashing: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.42.44, and 63!
This is confusing me as I read that my abs would be teves mkiv which can be reset by disconnecting the battery.
Newer Scorpios so I read had teves mk20 which has to be reset with a code scanner tool.
Those surely cannot be all the faults currently present with my abs mkiv after a reset.
Do I actually have a mk20 module that needs resetting?
I pulled it from behind the glove box, it is stamped 92GB-2C013-CB
Can anyone help with what module I have, and if it is a mk20 how I can reset it, or where to buy what I need.
Although you can see I have found out a few things, knowing nothing about Granada ABS before this, I still can't fix the thing.
All advice accepted gratefully.
