Code 2200 - ABS Module Malfunction

The ABS, ESP/BAS, TCS, and BRAKE lights all come on when the car starts to move. Took the car in to have the code checked, and the guy came back with code 2200 - said the ABS Module is malfunctioning (brake pads, rotors, etc. all in great working order) - could be a loose wire, it may not be grounded properly, or the module is just bad. But, the guy said he had no way of testing for the former two and could only replace the whole module. This is a pricey part to replace. Is there any way for me to see if it's one of the relatively simple fixes myself or is this one of those 'for professional hands only' problems?

The cpu moniters all the systems you mentioned so any one of the sensors can be faulty and put the light on. In my reference book on codes OBD-11 P2 the code quoted refers to nitrogen oxide sensor bank 1 circuit malfunction causes wiring NOx sensor or heated oxygen sensor 3 bank1. Wiring short to positive---short to ground ---ECM unless the ECM controls the abs etc I would be seeking a second opinion as to the problem
My reference is Auto data diagnostic trouble codes Engine management systems--2012

The code is C2200, I've got the same problem. At one time it actually went out on its own, this time I clear with OBD II reader, came back on next day. So I think is some sensor not reading properly, just got to figure out which.

SOURCE: My abs, brake, esp/bas, and esp/tcs lights all came on at once. Every time I start the car they are off and about thirty seconds into motion they all come on. Brakes seem to be functioning fine. It

Most likely ou have speed sensor that Is not giving the correct info. At startup the abs does a self check and since the light stays off until you drive it there is no issue with the systems integrity. The light comes on after you start to move because the system is not seeing the info it should be seeing. Your best course of action is to have the abs system scanned for trouble codes. This will help narrow the possibilities. Once you have the codes post them here.

I have a 2000 Mercedes E430 base sedan. Last week I replaced the brake light switch because it was out and it solved the problem to the point that I can now put my car into gear and drive it, however, as...


Brake light switch problem may cause the ESP / BAS lights to illuminate.

Common symptoms of a bad
Mercedes brake light switch.
  • Car stuck in Park.
  • ABS ESP ETS lights come on.
  • Can not move the shifter from Park to Drive.
  • Brakes Defective Warning on Instrument Cluster
  • Car won't shift gears. Stuck in 2nd gear, limp mode.
  • Brake lights don't work. (Brake light switch can still be defective even if the brake lights work. Checking the brake light operation is not a good test.)
  • ESP, BAS, ABS lights turn on. Car won't shift properly. Stuck in gear.


TEST: To test your new brake light switch: Turn you car off to reset the ABS light. apply the parking brake. and start the car in neutral or park without using the brake. if the problem is the brake light switch... the light will only come on when you press the brake pedal.

If you replaced the brake light switch and the light is still on you should check a few other things such as:

  • Fuses and Relays
  • ABS pump
  • ABS wheel speed sensor
  • Brake Fluid Level
  • Get an advanced scanner to read trouble codes.


NOTE: ** You may need a MBZ scan tool to reset the error code which was stored in the ECU because of the bad brake light switch.

Alarm deactivates but car wont start,orange key on dash


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)
