My milltek was exactly the same. First time it did it I was convinced my car was imploding.
Its been re-hung now, and modified a little and it doesn't do it anymore.
Can't think of what else it could be though, sorry.
Just read your thread, lovely car mate. I have a very similar one, just minus the perfect body work haha!
I'm loving those wheels too. I have the standard boleros on mine. Maybe one day I'll upgrade. It needs a lot more work though, I've only done essential stuff over winter but now it's...
Apparently the airbag is linked somehow on some vag cars, but as you say with yours removed it wouldn't have been that anyway.
I spoke to the remanufacture company yesterday and apparently my abs controller is completely dead, they couldn't even fix it, so they're sending me a new one off the...
Well, no luck with any of the above methods. I've still got my abs fault.
Cleaned the contacts, but all looked perfectly fine anyway. Checked the 50A fuse under the dash, and that was fine. Checked it with a multimeter also, and it registered 0 Ohms, so no reason to think it's bad (it visually...
Checked the 50a fuse, it's fine. Charged the battery and still getting the fault.
I've whipped the top connector off and the contacts all look really nice and clean. Now to take the wheel off so I can access the second connector underneath which is apparently for abs pump power, so I'm hoping...
I'll give the 50a fuse a look too.
I suspect it is the module, but just want to try eliminate everything else to make sure.
I'll be on this tomorrow as weather is forecast to be nicer so I'll report back with any findings.
I've got another abs light on my car :(
Last year I lost all comms with the abs module via vcds so had it repaired and all was peachy.
I've now got an abs light (yellow abs light and red warning icon on dis)
A vcds scan tells me its "ABS valves supply voltage" code 01200.
Ive googled it...
I snapped my achilles not long after this thread and haven't been able to drive the car in months, so other than a few trips around the block by the wife it wasn't used.
Anyway, I want to sort this now. Anyone know if the above will fit? Bradderz mentioned s4 calipers as an upgrade. I can't be...
Yeah, that's why I didn't bother with the rest. I assumed he only wanted the recent code. I was pretty impressed with how recent they were. I've had them in my possession a few weeks now, so they must have pretty much rolled off the line and over to me!
The loom might have broken? As far as I know a complete circuit means no warning light. When pads go low (or a wire snaps) it brings up a warning light. Might be worth looking at the loom to see whether it's snapped. Mine were soldered together so somebody at some point decided to not bother...
This was my concern. I asked him, but he reckoned that just 10 minutes wasn't enough to dislodge much.
I want the pickup pipe cleaning, but as you say don't want to kill it trying to dislodge engine crap!
Spoke to a new mechanic a few weeks back and he suggests running some engine flush for about 100 miles prior to replacing my pick up pipe rather than just 10 minutes.
Anybody run engine flush for a significant time (100 miles)?
