I have a 2001 2.0 PT cruiser coming in tomorrow that has both ABS and traction control lights on. I have done a scan with my Launch and I can see that I have a circuit fault on one sensor and no feedback on another; the other two are fine. Have swapped sensors around already and the fault doesn't change.

The thing is, I am about the 4th tech to be asked to look at this car and various cables have been 'repaired', and I just know that I going to be diving in to the unknown. It's even been to Chrysler without a cure.

I cannot find a wiring diagram anywhere for this model, Autodata has no data.

I need at the minimum to know what the pin outs are for the abs module with colour codes, or better still, a complete wiring diagram.

Can anyone help?

Robin,

I know nothing about the ABS arrangement on these and don't have any wiring diagrams or pin-outs to help you.

However, I have a feeling that these vehicles have 'active' wheel speed sensors. You mention that you have swapped the sensors around and the fault is still there.

If these are 'active' sensors, the reluctor ring will be part of the relevant wheel bearing assembly. Has this vehicle had any work done on brakes, suspension or wheel bearings recently?

Had exactly the same thing with one of them ................... we checked the sensors individually for resistance and found both offside sensor wires at fault ............

replaced them and it fixed it straight away but we couldnt find anyone that could access the CODES

Found the problem.

The previous 'repairs' have now all been ripped out. Never seen anything like it. Household flex, twisted wire joints etc. Only needed all the dodgy wiring removing and a front wheel sensor and everything was spot on.

Thanks for your help.
