Hey guys

Last night on when I started my car I noticed that the ABS warning light came on and it flahses 15 times then stays on after that.

Any ideas?

I think it may have something to do with the car not idling properly as both problems have pretty much came at the same point. When I start it when its cold it barley turns over as if the battery is partly flat, and when it does finally start it will not hold idle, it drops down that low untill it stalls. After around 5mins it is fine though, Could this be something to do with the ABS light flashing? Like diagnostics? I'm not sure, help!! please!! :?

Cheers

Yep, if you scan the puter a code comes up saying low battery warning or somthing of the like, mine was the same when I bought it, there is a pin out sequence to go thru to turn it of, I,m guessing the battery should be changed at the same time or the problem may very well pop up again

it's the low voltage code, which means the voltage to the airbag dropped and it didn't like it, search the forum on how to reset it and it'll be all good.


i had the same thing after i disconnected my airbag.
