ABS kicks in at very low speed turning right
« on: March 22, 2018, 09:33:42 PM »
Happens when I turn to the right and have foot brake applied, ABS kicks in even though the car isnt skidding/loosing traction. Havent had chance to look at the ABS rings yet, but has anyone had this issue before?

if you mean the ABS modulates / peddal judder then yes , had it on an elantra before ,not a carlton though,
even a small split/crack to an abs reluctor ring causes it and it won't always throw up a warning light

If the above post contains spelling mistakes / grammatical errors / poor use of the quote function / a very weak retort, or is generally shyte; it's because I'm feked on a cocktail of drugs,homebrew and carb cleaner.sorry

the ABS "ring" is the back of the hub at the front though om omega/senny/carlton,so worth checking the wheel bearing for play or remove the disc and check / clean the teeth and sensors
may be worth checking the rear reluctor rings too (on the drive shafts near the diff ) 
is it not putting the abs light on ?

Nope no warning light on. I must check that works actually, otherwise that could cause issues.

Had it on the ramp at work today, rear rings look ok. Fronts I can only just make out so will have a look when I get chance.

Cheers Dave.

well hopefully just a bit of rusty mess on one of the front teeth then,
a working abs dash light is important too (ecu needs a signal from that)
ecu under passenger seat.
check someone has not removed the abs bulb in dash (common) abs surge relay in box n/s suspension turret plus 2 abs relays live in the cover above the abs pump

ABS light iluminates as it should. Will get the hubs off over the summer and have a look. Not in a massive rush. Hoping it lives through another MOT what with all these new emissions rules coming out!

New rules won't effect your carlton emission wise
c20ne engine is still the same in 19th edition appendix
200 ppm hydrocarbon , 0.3 % Co

2oSE engine is not in so non cat test  8)

I had this happen on my GSI, the only thing I found was a siezed brake pad, after freeing everything off all was well. Can't explain why it would bring the ABS in a low speed though. Cheers, Craig
