ABS Fault

Post by auto206 »

Hi. I have a fault on a 2004 Peugeot 206. The ABS light comes on randomly. It can happen when stopped or driving. I did a scan and the fault is description is

ABS or ESP ECU
Intermittent fault. ABS/ASR (traction control) recirculation pump. Pump locked, CO, CC- or CC+

Would I be right in thinking the fix is to replace the ABS unit?

I'd personally disconnect the battery for 10mins, but that's my opinion

Is that to clear the code? I tried clearing it and it came right back. I also tried actuating the pump thinking it might be stuck but it seem to work everytime I actuate it.

I would disconnect the battery following the BSI procedure to clear the codes but does need 10 to 15mins which is actually longer than you think. If after reconnection it doesn't disappear then you have have something that needs to be looked into.

I gave my wife a driving lesson in the C8, she hit the brakes that hard at 10mph the ABS warning light came on. Just a yellow light, so battery off then on, all sorted.
