Default ABS light Eeeek..........

Hello guys, aint gonna lie joined up the forum (like many im guessing) through desperation.

My wifes 2012 1.4 GLS manual Swift had the ABS light come on. past couple of months. Didn't make any difference to the driving or braking and still doesn't. Although Im guessing the ABS under heavy breaking may be dud now. (worryingly).

Anyway Suzuki main dealer done the Diag and gave me a error code C1032 the rear right speed sensor failure. 4 weeks for the part to enter Australia? Anyway it came I paid for it and had my mechanic fit it. (main dealers extortionate)

My mech fitted but couldn't clear the code with his reader. Another Diag specialist failed at $50 too.

I was told its a software thing so that only Suzuki can clear the code?

Anyway bit the bullet with the main dealer who diagnosed the original fault and sold me the part. On the Diag again and same code and they claim they cant clear it either??

Just been told by them its most likely the ABS module at $6000 or $1750 rebuilt!!!

Im not that convinced. I don't trust them.

Why would a knackered module unit give a sensor error code?

Any ideas guys??

Cheers


Mark

Welcome to the forum.
The light is on because the control module is not getting it's signal from the wheel speed sensor. As you have a new sensor I assume it can only be failed wiring between the module and the speed sensor or the internals of the module. I'd sure like to test the interlinking wiring for continuity before condeming the control module though. I'm sorry to say I don't have any wiring diagrams for the later models. Is it worth "googling" the part number on the control module to see if you could find a used unit. Hopefully somebody will have more useful info .

Thanks Rusty. Its an easy $1750 right there. they also scare you with the $6000 figure and all of a sudden a pants down price of $1750 doesn't look too bad. marketing tactics meets psychological warfare.


Ill let the missis drive mine while I check this out.


Start the year and all that......

You need to investigate further, the module rarely fails..

Had the first tech diagnosed properly you would not have needed to spend $$ on a sensor..

same goes for the replacement mechanic..

Do these guys not know how to diagnose??

Thumbs up

I feel the same way, the sodden carte blache attitude with Diag hooks ups. they are a licence to print money.

Going to pop to a different Suzuki dealership and not mention the previous encounter.


A second opinion is a minimum I think considering.

Have read that the module/pump on the swift can be an issue. But it appears to be until 2011.

Its not easy.

Are you adverse to doing diagnostics?

Hi Mark ,

Has the spare wheel been fitted to the vehicle at some stage ?
If this is the case The ESP function has to be deactivated in ECM and the vehicle driven for 10 minutes above 40km/h.

Where are you located? I may be able to help you out if you are brisbane area.

Also abs unit is not $6000 or even $1750 to repair. You can buy a new one for around $2000 or more like $500 to repair.

Hi guys,


Have spoken with an ECU testing support company in the UK that deals with faulty ABS pumps. They said that the ABS pump on the Suzuki and many other that use this module has a built in brake pressure sensor. And that's the rub. earlier ones didn't.

However they have not had one go that gives the error code C1032 (ABS speed sensor) its usually C1028 which is the brake pressure sensor which would make sense.

Mmmm I have a diag OMBD II reader but it cannot read of cancel this.

Dr Suzuki...... Oddly enough the light came on the same day as the wife retrieved her car from JAX tyres to replace one of the tyres???? But that could be a red Herring? How would that make a difference??


I live in the Bayside of Brissy btw.

Thanks guys


Mark

Question

Okay........Dr Suzuki you have my curiosity piqued.

So,...checked the paperwork, and yes it was the tyre we had fixed.

The wife had a slow puncture on the rear right, and the garage where we bought the car at, South City Mazda placed the space saver on it claiming they didn't have right size tyre and would have to order one in.

Instead, as I know you cant drive around on a space saver for long, we took it into JAX tyres Capalaba the next day. The light came on soon after the tyre was replaced, and has been on since. The ESP light has been on since too.

So the code read right rear speed sensor and still does. I thought at the time that was very coinicidental and now you mention it may have something to do with it??

Very Odd indeed.

There is a technical service bulletin about the azh414 where after replacement of a standard wheel with the spare that the abs light illuminates and cannot be cleared until a certain procedure is adhered to, i guess a flat will cause the same thing. Guess the dealers dont have a clue.
Would you like me to try and fix it , i have the suzuki sdt scanner so i should be able to . no charge at all if i cant fix it. buti have the know how and the equipment.
