Question about 1996 Cadillac Eldorado
My mechanic said the 'pins are all rusted and frozen, in the abs unit located in the engine compartment, frivers side in the very front...down deep.Was he referring to theabs pump assembly?
There is a branch of the engine wiring harness that splits off and plugs in to that pump assembly. the pins on that are rusted. they are thick (maybe 20 gauge stiff wires? - the thing looks like a giant video game controller with a screw on it)
you may be able use a wire brush f that is in fact the why your abs light is on. but rust is just the symptom.. if you can get that working, make sure you weather proof the seal so it doesn't happen again
but the way life works, you are probably going to end up going to a junk yard and stealing (buying?) that end off of another eldo. if you can, call a few junk yards and make sure the one you take is from a 96. i don't believe that that abs module connection changed but caddys are horrible and the company likes to change the wire colors between model years for some parts. then you can splice them together and with a little trial and error you should be able to get it going. (some of the wires within some of the cables are the same colors.. i think i ran in to it twice between the 4 or 5 larger cables that mostly make up the snake)
oh and if thats the route you take, make sure you keep the cable as close to the same length as possible. it has a very awkward bend in it that JUST keeps it from getting chewed up by the smaller radiator fan. hope the wire brush works :)
oh wow just realized you posted this about 4 months ago. hope you didn't need abs this winter :)
