i have posted about this before but new information has arrised.

firstly the ABS and brake warning lights come on but not all the time . when they do come on if i stop the pajero turn it off , pump the pedal till the pedal goes hard then turn the key to the on position , the lights are on then accumilator will pump for a few seconds then pump again the lights will go out. now when i drive off they will stay off till i use the brakes a bit hard . also they will come on straight away if i make the pajero use the ABS.
this all just started out of the blue . any help? by the way it is a 2002 pajero 3.5 petrol

i had similar problems with my cruiser ABS light coming on,i cleaned the front abs sensors(were covered in crap) the rear ones are in the dff housing,they were clean and hey presto no more light.i do a fair bit of off roading in it then it sits till the next adventure,so the rust is quick to build up.it worked for me and it might for you.cheers Paul

I had a similar issue in a Prado. Turned out I had air in the brakelines - when the dealer bled the lines the problem went away.

Come any closer and I'll rip your throat out!

most new abs systems have nitrogen cannister to boost pressure. (but not in brakelines ) maybe theres a leak

I had a 2002 Disco which had a lot of problems with the ABS light had it reset by a Landrover dealer several times. Was told by them they could track the problem with a computer to the area near the fault then they would have to search by hand with a tester to find the exact wire with the problem at $96 per hour. I"m the Happy owner of a 1991 petrol Patrol now Bugger technology stick to basics.
