well mine comes on alot earlier than 140km/h try 5km/h, noticed as well that when i start the car with my foot on the brake it doesnt sink so im thinking if it could be the brake booster

hm, but doesnt the check abs light refer to a fault with abs, wouldnt think itd report booster.. more likely the sensors are screwed?

same was as when doing a burnout (not like id know ;) ) it detects the front wheels not moving but the rears are... and causes the fault?

well the sensers are fine ,the mech said its either ecu or wiring and he is leaning towards the ecu as being the problem which is $3000 by itself,so i think the best option would be to take the abs fuse out.

mech said it was the accumilater which is 3g, then to kloster for config $150 plus labour to install so about 3500 .like you said voxace out with the globe.
i reckon ive got a better feel to the brakes anyways with the abs not working so all is good.
funny how it happened after i had got the car lowered. :roll:

I took the ABS (ALB) fuse out of my step mums wagon to have some fun in it, and the check ABS light was perminantly on, the brakes felt so much firmer, but after a week it started to chew the front discs away. so i returned the fuse and all was good again, and as it should be...

don't just take the fuse out.
either put a fried one in there or fry the current one.
so you have an excuse if anything happens.
