    I hope someone can help me please. I have a Hymer 1992 310d 555s. My ABS light has come on. I explained to my mechanic I heard a noise prior to the light coming on, he thought that it may have been the ABS pump due to the noise. He changed the pump but the light is still on. He has carried out a resistance check on the front and rear sensors, the 2 front sensors were ok but 1 of the rear sensors was high. i am told the sensors are the problem.

    The Chassis No. WDB 6024 111P 171392

    Does anyone know where I can obtain rear sensors?

    Merecedes Part Numbers.
    Left: A 000 540 1117
    Right: A 000 540 1017

    Bosch Part Numbers:

    0265 001239
    0265 001240

    I am also looking for an English Manual for my Hymer.

    Thank you

    Fault lights on dash

    I am no expert on these things but:

    You don' t say whether you have plugged a fault code reader into the vehicle.

    If it applies you really need to get someone to plug in a OBD reader to the vehicle and find out the fault code.

    It may well be something less serious than you think.

    The computer in the vehicle checks everything every time you start but may not reset the indicator light immediately after you replace something.

    You could be replacing all sorts of things before it goes out.:thumb:

    as the sensors are in an extreme environment it may be worth removing the faulty one/s and giving them a clean as they can be affected by road dirt...nothing to lose except a little time.

    it does take a short while for the warning light to clear once the fault is fixed...
    mine, Chrysler 300c car which is basically a re-bodied mercedes E class , took around five mins driving before the light went out.

    the faulty sensor wont affect braking except you wont have the anti-lock function.

    1993 year wont be OBD compliant..

    OBD didnt become mandatory until 1996 at the very earliest and that was on American vehicles.

    OBD for european diesels became mandatory in 2004

    [FONT=&quot]The control unit does not have a fault memory. The only way to diagnose is to check all of the components one by one with tester.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Diagnostics Engineer : [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]The most common cause for ABS failure is the overvoltage protection relay's dry solder joints, failed brake light switch or bad wheel speed sensors.[/FONT]
