Hi, this is a variation of this old problem.
My car sits in the garage for most of the time. Its a 97XK8 convertible with 70k miles. I know these cars dont like sitting… but thats the way it is.
When I take it out, start it from cold, i always get engine light, ABS and traction fail. Always. However, I then drive it and after quite some time, say 25 miles, and usually after a stop and start, the ABS/traction comes back to life, and a little while later, the engine light goes out. Sometimes it will take a couple of days driving for this to happen. But once it does, I am Ok for any and all stop starts until I let the car get cold again. Then its back to square 1… The code it throws is for right side rear ABS sensor lead failure.
i have done the following
- Had the module solder repair some years ago, and rechecked recently. All good.
- New Battery and fully charged.
- Swapped the rear wiring harnesses left to right to see if the problem moved with it. It did not.
Any ideas please?
