Dear customer, have you done any diagnostics for error codes?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
there is no fault codes
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, all ABS indicators are related to an error code, but many devices do not have access to these modules.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I bought a cheap code reader and displays no codes
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, a generic code reader does not have access to the ABS system and therefore cannot detect faults related to this module on all models.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Ok so what do I need to do to fix my problems
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
what about my speedo
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, the first thing you should do is a diagnosis from a more specialised equipment, because as I said before not everyone has access to these modules, then if the problem is not corrected from a more specialised equipment, we must perform an inspection of the brake system and the wheel position sensor, that any factor that detects instability in the vehicle, can generate that this sensor is activated.

How about my speedo that also didn’t work
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, spedometers can only be reset from diangostic tools, although they usually fail due to faulty connections.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Ok everything on dash works apart from speedo fuel rpm all working fine just speedo
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, if this is the case, it is advisable to perform a reset, this problem is quite common.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
How would I do a reset please
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, fortunately, from the same diagnostic tool with the brand's software, you can have access to the different actuators of your dashboard.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 10 days ago.

Dear customer, yes, it is the most effective for the kind of problem you have, but these checks are not expensive.
