  1. I have a 2006 Ford Ka which has an ABS light on and the speedo does not work. My scanner (Snapon Verdict) wont communicate with the ABS system. Is this the how a faulty ABS ECU presents itself?

  2. Hello John

    Thanks for the enquiry,

    Yeah, if you’re getting no comms via the diagnostic port then just check to make sure you can still communicate with the other modules i.e. Engine ECU and BSI module. If you can communicate with other modules then this rules out the diagnostic port and your scanner being the fault. Then you need to confirm you’ve got voltage going TO the ABS pump and that all the fuses/relays for the ABS are Okay. Also a wiring continuity check for the ABS module to make sure there are no breaks in the wire which could cause loss of signal.

    If all checks out okay then you’ve got a definite ABS module fault on your hands.. it’s a very common fault and we’re able to fully remanufacture these now with a Lifetime warranty. For pricing, please call us on 0208 853 5000.
