first post on here, so answers gratefully received.
I have a Honda Accord 2006, ABS sensor line was ruined by flapping tyre in a blowout on the motorway (freeway).
I ordered a new sensor (non-Honda) and fitted it after a lot of fighting to get the old one out, and the ABS, VSA and Warning lights went out. I took it in for it's MOT test (UK roadworthiness test for those abroad), and the ABS light came back on as I went.
Initially, I figured that this almost certainly meant one of the following:
- Grit/rust on the sensor ring from after the new installation.
- Sensor isn't in place properly.
- Damage to the sensor in some way.
Instead of the MOT, I had the garage review the whole ABS system, and they tell me no problem with the sensor ring, sensor is in, and the issue is probably behind the wiring harness.
I think they haven't so much as taken the sensor out, much less looked at the sensor ring etc., and that I either need another new sensor, or the sensor hole needs further cleaning.
What do people think? I'm torn between spending another evening taking a look at it, and just taking it direct to an electrician. I'm limited on time, but equally, keen to fix it myself if I can.
