ABS, TC, Speedo & Auto Fault
« on: 05 April 2021, 21:10:00 »

Hi,
I seem to have a few issue's with the car (2000 Facelift 3.0 V6 Elite Saloon)
The TC & ABS lights are on and the speedo is intermittent and now the auto gearbox only works if I actually pull away in 1st, them select each gear, if I select D it feels like its trying to pull away in 2nd or 3rd

Any Ideas???

That combination is classic ABS ECU failure. The next step is to have the codes read so you can diagnose the actual fault and plan a repair. The basic OBD engine tools won't do this job; more powerful/specialist kit is needed.

The gearbox is probably playing up because it can't see the  ABS ecu :y

The ECU yes, the pump block is another matter, it's normally the ecu which fails, I will check I've still got the ecu when I get home.

That's why you need to read the codes, as it was the valve block that failed on mine....
