Question about 1998 Mazda 626

1 Answer

ABS light Mazda Familia

The ABS light won't go off. The garage has replaced the Wheel Speed Sensor, but the light still stays on most of the time. The mechanic said it was something to do with a pump unit which has let water in and shorted it out. Is this supposed to be a sealed unit? They told me it will be $600 for a new pump. Any ideas/comments?

    I was just told the abs pump motor is shorted and the part is $998 plus over $250 labor. the car is only 3 years old (Mazda 3 Hatchback) and is used very little. seems outrageous

Hey
Check the brake light bulbs as they can make the ABS light come on if burned out.

My 2003 mazda protege abs and brakes light stays on. why .i havs the scanner plug in and it keep deteting that there is a error in the systom and it dosnt give me any reading. thanks


Most likely a wheel speed sensor or the wiring that connects to it. Check all four wheels to see if there is a wire connector that has a wire missing or broken.

ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS


It could be a number of things including the ABS fuses, ABS pump, a bad wheel speed sensor or broken/missing teeth that the sensors use to calculate wheel speed. You would need to take it somewhere and get the DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) with a scan tool to proceed any further.

My Cousin has a 2003 Ford Ranger his ABS light stays on and the Garage wont pass the MOT till it is fixed. they sent the whole unit up to Glasgow to be looked at but there machine couldnt read it. he has...


ABS light,most of the time, indicates a bad wheel speed sensor.
If you don't have an American OBD2 connected code reader or scan tool.
unplug one wheel speed sensor at a time,put a volt meter on the two wires,
set meter to HZ, and see if you get a decent output ,when turning the wheel
Compare, to what most likely will be 1 or 3 other good ones.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.


If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

ABS, Traction control and handbrake light is on. Car was running on 3 cylinders previous to the lights coming on. 1999 Mazda SP20 Familia (323)


I have a Mazda Capella (626) 1998 and had similar problem other than it was running on 4 cylinders and the hand brake light was not on and the ANSWER was a speed sensor which is to do with ABS system needed replacing. You can determine which one is broken by putting volt meter over each of them.
