Had the AA man use diagnostic on my car and he said there was an open circuit. Below it what they sent to my email:

Patrol found the following fault code/s:System : ABS 1 - 88K / ABS 8.0 Status :11 - Wheel-speed sensor front right. Error Message : Open circuit/short circuit. not active.suspect offside wheel sensor fault ok to drive be aware no abs normal brakes only

I purchased the sensor from eBay for less than £20 and fitted it today. Old one was rusty and stuck so had to drill it out. However the lights are both still on. I’ve been out for a drive but they still haven’t turned off. I’ve tried the obd pin 4 and 9 trick I saw online but that doesn’t seem to work either.

Could it be the other part that goes from wheel arch to abs module? I’ve seen a post about someone saying for them it happened to be the brake pedal sensor but would that not show a different fault code?

Part Number on the one I removed is 57450-SMG 8C281. Coxmotorparts said part was 57450-SMG-E01. When I check for part ending 8C281 the part that comes up is ending E01.

I've checkedand cleared them like this using the pin 43 and 9 trick...


To checkcodes


1. Short the #9and #4 pin on the DLC.


2. Turnignition switch to ON.


3. Count theflashes from the indicator light and then look up the code.


To reset


1. With theignition switch OFF


2. Short theSCS circuit to body ground (#4 and #9) pin using a paperclip


3. Press and hold thebrake pedal.


4. Turn theignition switch ON (II) while keeping the brake pedal pressed.


5. After theABS indicator goes off, release the brake.


6. After theABS indicator goes on, press and hold the brake pedal again.


7. After theABS indicator goes off, release the brake again.


8. After a fewseconds, the ABS indicator should blink twice and the DTC clear (If the ABSindicator stays on after it blinks twice, check the DTC again and have another go, because another problem may have arisen).


9. Turn theignition switch OFF.


10. Disconnectthe paperclip from the DLC.


The clearing ofthe lights on the dash only kicked in for me after a lock / unlock of the carand an engine restart (so I guess the system changes are cleared on start-up)


Hope this helps

Mine the light flashes twice then comes back on. Then flashes again and stays on. Tried it a few times and does the same.

if you were not carefull when you drilled old 1 out you might have damaged the actuator ring the sensor picks up from
only real way is to read the codes
what area are you someone might have a code reader near by

I’m in stalbans. Worse case I did damage the actuator ring, how much would that cost to fix and is it something I could do myself?

Where exactly does the ring go? Is it at the end of the sensor or does it go around it? When I drilled the old part out, I went about half way into the sensor and it stuck onto the drill bit and came out.

should be ok then
the pick up ring is on the hub it spins with the wheel and the sensor picks up the notches to judge the wheel speed

It was pretty gunky when I took the old sensor out. When I cleaned it some bits came out like a rusty paste, similar to play dough consistency.

The light does a long flash and short flash and keeps repeating like that. What would the code be for that?
That sounds like code 11 which is right front short to ground or short to power

Long flashes are tens and short ones singles so one long and one short is 11

Was that the one you replaces? If so check the connector and make sure it's not damp or the cable damaged

I did check the new part before fitting and it didn’t look damaged or damp. I did have my car washed a few hours earlier but that was before I even started replacing the cable. The wheel arch wasn’t that wet either. What are the chances the part could be faulty? If not could the part be working and somehow the light still be on but just need the codes wiped by a diagnostic? Can the abs/vsa codes be wiped?

It is likely that some debri from drilling the sensor could have stayed in when I cleaned it but there was a lot of rusty gunk already in there. I’m sure I didn’t drill into the ring. In your post there’s a mention of the brake pedal switch causing the issue which I have seen in a couple of other posts. I’m going to try changing the next as it’s the easiest and most likely cheapest. How much would it cost part and labour at a garage to change the wheel bearing?
