Unfortunately I don’t have the code yet

Hi thanks I have looked through your details of your vehicle and have the codes

Did the vehicle breakdown on you

or was it only abs and transmission faults that appeared

did it lose power

did the red immoblisor light start flashing in the centre of the dash

It did not breakdown as I was able to drive it home on Thursday night. It was only ABS light, “spanner” and the transmission malfunction that were displayed and nothing more.

The odometer also stopped working.

Hi thanks

ok looking more in-depth to your issue

it shows the ABS. Module hasn’t responded on the network test

Indicating the fault is internal of the ABS module

this will cause all your symptoms as they are all connected

so if all the wiring is ok then the fault is caused by a faulty abs module

Should I want them to replace the ABS module outright what do you think the bill will be? And how long do you think it would take to do so?

Looking at the details it indicates the abs module is the cause (no communicating ) which impacts a few other systems at the same time

if the vehicle is in warranty (after sales warranty) then this should be covered

as a new module and fitting would be roughly around £500 (I would need to double check the price of the module to give a exact cost )

Do you think I will be able to sell this car to get close to its highest possible valuation based on what you have seen on the details of the car?

Hi there the used car market just now depends on a few different things ie : condition ,mileage ,service history do it is hard to tell really

Hello Brian

I just want to check with you if you could help me to check if the technician actually replaced the ABS Module of my car.

They have been very difficult to speak to the Ford dealer’s garage since Tuesday. I have asked them to replace the module but they have given little or no information on what was done.

I have been informed that they will bring the car today.

Please help me ascertain that I am not taken advantage of due to my inexperience.

I hope to hear from you.



Regards

Hi there good morning to you

unfortunately I cannot clarify if they have fitted an abs module or not

but of the vehicle is returned to you and no lights are on i is would say they have resolved the issue
kindest regards in advance
