I bought a very cheap, and fairly tidy 2.8Q at weekend, on an R reg 113k miles 6 Months MOT, cost me £500.
It needs taxing by Thursday, the backbox needs putting back on it (its in the boot), and it needs a battery which I will just get second hand, so it will probably stand me at £650-£700 once that is all sorted. the aim is something nice, but cheap to smoke about in whilst my S3 is off the road ( Inertia's S3 Upgrade Thread )
The other major issue it has which could end up costing is that it has an ABS fault, its a pain really because the brakes work fine, but there is a red exclamation mark on the DIS all the time, and the car beeps at me, it means the DIS isn't usable.
Plugged in my mates laptop and ran VAG COM (3.11) and scanning the full car, it is only able to read 'Interior sensors' which are OK. It cant read any other module on the car.
I read (via Google) that the abs module is hogging the K-line causing this. does this mean I have a faulty module or could it be just a faulty ABS sensor ?
Temporarily is there any way to shut it up and just not have ABS, perhaps pull a fuse or just disconnect the ABS module?
Any suggestions for a permanent fix?
