problem #1

Nov 031997


  • miles
ABS light comes on at random indicating that ABS is disabled, restarting the vehicle resets this condition for a while, dealers unable to diagnose or repair. Egr and egr solenoid failed, 3 visits to dealer did not fix problem, but rather on two occassions they deliberatly disabled the egr system to hide the problem from me. I finally repaired the problem myself by replaing the egr solenoid at my own expense.
