Abs Diagnostics

Recommended Posts

2006 400h. the abs light came on...is there a way to get diagnostic info about the defective component without specialized tools (that dealers have)? e.g., in acura one can get info by shorting two pins in a service connector; the abs light flashes and provides a 2-digit code.

thanks

Just curious, have you had a brake job done recently where you or the mechanic tried to bleed the brakes? You can't bleed the brakes on the hybrid the same way you can with a conventional vehicle.

no, no work done on brakes. the car has only 36K miles.

the strange thing is that the light came on when the car was stand-still as was stopped at a traffic light.
