ABS doubt

Question : THE light of my six-year old Perdana V6 goes off and on. Is it safe to drive when the light is on ?

My electrical mechanic says he can switch off the light by disconnecting the ABS wire.

The Proton workshop can replace the ABS at a price of between RM5,000 and RM6,000.

Shall I follow the mechanic's advice or replace the car with a new ABS ?

Can the ABS be repaired? And where please ?

Answer : Firstly, you need to find out whether the ABS controller is at fault or is it just the indicator or any other component.

This can only be done by using test equipment and you may find that the fault is only with a wheel sensor or even a cable harness.

My suggestion is to take the car to a Proton service centre that has the proper test equipment and check it out.

ABS systems are what is called a closed loop system and if there is no hydraulic leakage, the brakes would still work even though the ABS does not, unless there is a valve problem.

The best is still to get it properly checked.
