  • Blown No. 10 (7.5A) fuse in the under-dash fuse/relay box.
  • Open in the wire between the No. 10 (7.5A) fuse and the gauge assembly.
  • Open circuit inside the fuse box.

3.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

4.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.

5.Disconnect the ABS control unit 47P connector.

6.Reconnect the battery cable.

7.Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

Does the ABS indicator come on?

NO - Go to 8.


8.Remove the gauge assembly.

9.Disconnect the gauge assembly connector B (22P).

10.Check for continuity between the gauge assembly connector B (22P) terminal No. 13 and body ground.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Repair short to body ground in the wire between the gauge assembly and the ABS control unit.n


NO - Go to 11.


11.Check for continuity between the gauge assembly connector B (22P) terminal No. 15 and body ground.

 

Is there continuity?


YES - Check for loose terminals in the gauge assembly connectors. If the connector is OK, replace the gauge assembly.n


NO - Repair open in the wire between the gauge assembly and body ground ( G502).n
