2005 XC70 ABS/Anti-skid light

Post by wczimmerman » Fri Mar 13, 2020 1:40 pm

So, this light comes on and off at random times, often with many days between. I finally got my iCarsoft device on the OBDII port and the attached image is the code it's throwing.

Are there some resources here I can review or tips from members on starting this troubleshooting? I cleared it for now.

Well, FCP Euro has a nice video on checking the fuse (low hanging fruit) for the ABS pump and then a blog article about the sensor in the steering wheel (clock sensor) which may be a common failure point.

I literally just posted how I solved this a few post down.
Does your ABS make a loud noise under the hood before the light comes on?

Anyways, you'll need to goto ebay or a junkyard, and get a new ABS motor, and remember, ebay is only selling an entire ABS unit so you're gonna have to live with that. The motor is a black circular piece at the top of the ABS unit, and it's rare, but the brushes in the unit tends to carbon up and become useless.

So what you're gonna do is go to an older post I'm linking with BCM-0070 error, and there will be a pdf file about how to install/uninstall the motor. And when you uninstall the motor from your car, you sure as hell want to make sure you don't take out the bearing that's being held by two pins when you remove the motor. It'll force you weld a 1/2 inch copper pipe holder into a spreader, and get a ring plier spreader if you screw it up. Because the two pins holding a bearing in place is really strong. The attachment will explain everything but that is what worked for me.
