I have a 2000 k1200lt for a while now the abs light has been flashing left right left right.The brakes work just fine so Ive continued to use it and just be mindful of the lack of abs.
However It disturbs me how much the valeu of the bike is affected by the abs lights being on.
I took it to my BMW dealer who scanned it and told me the abs unit had gone bad , that a new unit would be £2000 and so the bike was beyond economic repair, he refused to elaborate further.
Obviously I was unsatisfied by this so I decided to have a go myself.
Firstly I bought a hexcode 911-gs, hoping that this would at least diagnose the issue and hopefully clear the codes and turn off the light.
I connected the gs911 and was able to scan the engine codes etc so it was working and connected correctly , but when I tried to scan the abs or clear the codes or anything to do with the abs it retured."failed to read fault codes no response from controller"
Now I dont know what to do, should I consider that the whole abs control unit is bad? and search for a replacement.Or is there another course for me to take.Im unwilling to order another part and start taking the bike apart without better proof that the unit is bad.
Thanks in advance for your help
