Hi All, After approx 2 wks of the ABS light and siren coming on intermittently, I had the brakes bled. It is still happening and the mech. has said that I may need the ABS cylinder replaced at approx $3000. Does this sound right? Has anyone had any exp with this? cheers Anne.

First check that the sensors are clean from mud etc. Also possible damage to cabling to the sensors caused by trailing sticks etc. Also any loose connections.
My ABS warning light came on as a result of a damaged cable where it is supported on to the rear axle housing. The mechanic could also be right!

I had a wire pull out of my cruiser abs sensor and had a constant light on on the dash.After repairing it, I drove for about a km before it reset it self and light went off.

Go to the large pink fuse, in the large fuse use box under the bonnet and check it out.

Cheers Steve.

Been there, done that - loose wire from driving over tree trunk with lots of branches sticking out - too lazy "THAT" time. 15 minutes tracing wires to all 4 wheels and "yes" it was the last wheel one I checked - rejoined "bush mechanic" style and system reset itself shortly afterwards. COST - about 15cents worth of electrical joiners and tape + 15minutes of my own time.

Yeah - "OH WHAT A FEELING " is spot on
Cheers

A loose wheel bearing can cause the sensor to be away from the trigger wheel in the hub. Eric

Don't you hate that?? My 100 series does not have a siren but my ABS light has been coming on intermittently for a couple of years but seems more frequent of late. Is a bit ask to replace the ABS cylinder in the HOPE that it might be fixed. I pulled my sensors out and checked the wires. Sensors are big magnets it seems and the were pretty grubby. I worked away at them cleaning and buffing until Jen thought about wearing them as bling they were so shiney. Put em back and drove off - light went off and I was chuffed - for a day - and then they came on agaiin. Will go to Mr Toyota one day.

Hi Andrew, do you know how to turn off the noise, as I've been told the brakes are ok. Anne.

Hi Anne

Ours has never made a noise when the ABS light comes on so I assume that it might be a new 'innovation'. Ours is a 2001 model.

(PS John R - Jen is such a stunner that even the genuine bling looks cheap on her so I can't buy her anything......)
