W201 ABS engaging when near stopped and only turning right

Post by John Vauden » Sun 02 Dec, 2018 9:42 pm

Hi folks,

Let me know your ideas on this: My ABS engages when I'm nearly stopped (car crawling less than 5kmph) and generally when my steering wheel is pointing right.

Is this likely the ABS sensor or the OVP relay or something else?

Just installed new pads and changed the brake fluid and the discs looked good.

Love your opinions?

Cheers.

Remove and clean the wheel speed sensors. Ideally also remove the discs and clean the chopper ring that is part of the front hub.

Also check the Tire Treads and make sure they have the proper Pressure.
Was it doing this BEFORE you changed the Pads ????

SO I cleaned the sensors and now its so bad the ABS disengages and the ABS light comes on.?? I was told this could also be the OVP relay?? Does that make sense to anyone? one plus is that with the ABS disengaged the drive is much more pleasurable.

has someone had the same problem? if so whats the next step?

Cheers
