Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

Speedo and ABS dead

Post by ogden » Tue Mar 28, 2017 7:10 pm

Got the SMT back today, after 7 months off the road - finally got round to getting the timing coil pickup replaced.

So obviously now that's fixed it's got another problem. Speedo's stuck at zero, and the ABS light is stuck on. I'm guessing that means a problem with the front wheel speed sensor, so I've just had it apart. Everything looks OK - nothing stupid like having the wheel the wrong way round so the plate's on the wrong side. Continuity check on the sensor itself, measured at the connector inside the cockpit, is about 800 ohms. Connection back to the ECU (or wherever) showed about the same. But no dice.

Any thoughts?

I'll check my sensor when I get home, to see if it reads the same/close to yours.
