Question 2005 ABS problem!!

Guys;

I have completed all the winter work on the 2005 LT and put the Tupperware on and was checking everything before wiping her down and getting ready for a ride on Sunday.

I stepped on the rear brake pedal and I did not hear the ABS noise. Pulled the handle and same think, no noise and the rear lights did not flash. Checked the fuses all are good.

I did the ABS flush about a month ago and it abs made the standard noise during the bleeding of the abs and rear caliper. Now no noise al all!!

Should I try to redo the flush of the abs and brakes ?

I will take the Tupperware off again and wait to hear from the experts.

Regards,
Bowdon.

Re: 2005 ABS problem!!

Check fuse f7 (4 amp) (and check with a meter or light) and if that is OK then rack the connector on the ABS (pull it loose and re-attach). You should hear the whine during the start up cycle as soon as you turn the key. If not you are missing voltage some where either a blown fuse or a loose connector. You should also see the fast flash during the initial self test and then after the short whine a slow flash should remain until the roll out test. Make sure you are getting these before doing anything else.

Thumbs up Re: 2005 ABS problem!!

John;

Glad to see you back in full forum mode!!

The fuses were OK and I started to take the Tupperware off, I noticed that the connector on the ABS was not down to the bottom and was loose. Not making the connection, so pulled it up, put it down and made sure it was connected. Turned the Key and I HAVE ABS AND LIGHTS!!

Stupid mistake, but thanks for responding as quickly as you did!!

I was worried the ABS was done!! I was trying to think how I was going to try to find one and then pay for it!!

Time to have a beer and leave it for an hour or two before I start putting things back together.

Again, glad to see your back on and hopefully riding soon.

Regards,

Bowdon

Re: 2005 ABS problem!!

It is not uncommon to pull that connector during a flush to get the damn little wrench in there. Figured that is what happened. It is good to be happy. I just have to be careful on posts and timing as Jean is shoving pain meds in me to keep me still just don't want to give somebody bad advice

Re: 2005 ABS problem!!

I hear the blue(pills) are great for pain and happy time!!

Good luck with the recovery, back on the bike in no time ( I remember when I have my knee scrapped, took 6 months to get some of the strength back to be able to even hold the bike straight!!).
I heard that a knee replacement is better then the scraping and bones!!

Regards,

Bowdon
