Hi

 

What you need to do first is check for ABS malfunction codes .

 

From the codes you will then know what part of the system is being affected by the rain.

 

Most likely one of the wheel speed sensors checking for codes will let you which one .

 

Do a ABS code check then please get back to me with the code.

Hi Roy .

After replacing the sensor was the codes cleared .

You have to be careful also when you have the U0415.

I need to know which car you have model engine year and id 4wd or 2wd

it,s a 1.4 16 valve 207XXXXX57 plate , yes the code was re set after new sensor fitted and brakes bled , lights stayed out for a while, the lights came back on , abs light keeps going off and on , do you think it needs a new sensor ring , or the brakes bleeding

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Roy after seeing the warning light come back on after the repairs and reset did the U0415 and any other codes come back.

Hi Roy will not be resetting but be more like intermittent.

Recheck for codes as this looks like a bad ABS module but I need the codes if any .

Expert:  Greg replied 3 years ago.
Hi Roy n.

ABS module is on the ABS Pump.

And yes this could be your problem if the master cylinder gets replaced the system has to be bleed with the scan tool in ABS systems and bleeding brake system.
You must do this after master cylinder is replaced.
