I have a daily 2006 1.8 Honda civic (fk2) and last week after driving in an unavoidable puddle, the Check ABS and VSA system message has appeared. I have run a diagnostic, cleared all faults and the following still remains:
' 54-1 - Relay fail; safe relay fail '
Does this mean the ABS relay in the exterior fuse box is faulty and needs replacing? Battery was replaced about 8 months ago so cant see this being the issue (as I have read low voltage can be an issue). Anyone with an FN2 or same generation civic had this issue?
Update: Had this issue for a while now and MOT is due so time to get this sorted. See the image attached below. I have tried to remove the ABS/VSA black plastic box fuse as per the diagram - this is #3 for the VSA/ABS - is this the relay? No luck with it as I removed the screw but it won't move at all - is there a way of taking this out/how do you remove this? And where can I get a replacement as I believe this is the best place (and cheapest) to start in solving the issue.
All other fuses seem fine on inspection including the interior fuse box - #4 ABS unit fuse.
All input is appreciated.
