2001 Accord 2.3 Type V RHD
Can anyone help with the ABS control unit location and/or ABS fault code 15: Wheel sensor (open/short to power) RR?
After an intermittent ABS warning light that always went out before I could investigate, it is now on permanently. Shorting the required connector and reading the blinks gives me ABS fault code 15: Wheel sensor (open/short to power) RR.
I'm working from the US Accord service and wiring manuals.
My first suspects were the sensor and the connector at the wheel. However, the sensor gives the same resistance as the others and the connector and its terminals are in good condition with no sign of water or dirt ingress. All the voltages and resistances on both sides of the connector at the wheels are similar to those at the RL wheel; disconnecting the RL wheel gives code 17 as expected and reconnecting removes it. I could splice the wires to by pass the connector or cut through the sleeving to check the connector but I'm wary of causing new problems.
I'm banging my head against a brick wall on finding the ABS Control Module so that I can check at that end.The US Service Manual gives the control unit location as the left-hand kick panel (where our RHD passenger's foot would be) but it's not there. I've taken off both kick panels, the centre console and the lower dash panels but can't find it' The ABS pump module and wheel sensor wires from the sensors quickly disappear into the looms so are no help. I've taken a mirror and torch to look as far under the dash as I can. Still no control unit.
As for the fault itself, my first suspect was the connector at the wheel. However, its terminals are in good condition. There is no sign of water or dirt ingress. I could splice the wires to by pass the connector or cut through the sleeving to check the connector but I'm wary of causing new problems. I'd rather check at the control unit first.
