Hello,

Recently got myself a Peugeot Planet and and other bits to try and diagnose an ABS fault I was having.

The ABS light, handbrake light and the STOP light would all display. (Picture Attached). There is an anti pollution fault you will see too but not majorly worried about that one at the moment.



I used the software but I am very new and didn't to to hit anything I wasn't sure about.

Took some screenshots of anything I was able to find but not sure what they mean.





The car went to the garage originally the was told our front passenger side wheel bearings needed replacing, so got this done and the fault disappeared for a week or so but has now returned.

Any help would REALLY REALLY be appreciated.

Thanks,
Berch

There's a fault with the ABS ECU - it's possibly water damaged. I think it's by the nearside front roadwheel. Then again, it could be the other side, I can't remember without looking :rolleyes:

General CAN fault refers to the communication protocol used between the ECU's, BSI and the software you're plugging in. Again, it could be faulty or corrupted ECUs

The non-descript ABRASR faults are new to me.

Hello,

Thanks very much for your response.

If I were to check, would any water damage to the ABS ECU be obviously visually?

What are they like to replace? If this something I could do myself or something best done in the garage? If the garage, do you have any rough estimate of how much that kind of job would cost?

Thanks and sorry for all the questions, it's my first car and really want to get it fixed :p

Thanks,
Berch

water damage is obvious if you open up the ecu ,the circuit will be whitish in parts. ive not opened up the ecu but i did have one world of problems with my 307 after traversing the a12's many puddles/lakes a few months back.
The problem isn't finding a garage to do the work, it seems to be finding a garage who understand what they are doing.
there is a firm in rayleigh who specialise in hdi's and there many foibles, i'll dig out there number in a sec...they will insist on doing there own diagnostics though, but the price for that comes off the bill if you choose to go ahead with the work.

Hello,

Thanks for your responses, really are appreciated!

Going to look tomorrow morning if it's water damaged at all, if it does turn out to be water damaged and needs replacing can you buy an Ecu online?

Peugeot 307 ABS ECU , Brand New unit, Part No. 4542K7

I found this, am I looking at the right thing? Are they hard to remove the old one and put on a new one?

I heard new ones need programming and can be done with pp2000, is this a simple process in copying configuration details from old Ecu onto the new one and would this be possible to copy with my current fault?

Thanks again, like really thank you.

You have a network fault thats what all the U codes are it could be the ecu damaged but it could just as easily be wiring i would not jump in to buying anything just yet check the connections first

Hello,

Thanks again for the responses and help.

Got the wheel off today and attempted to look for the ABS ECU. Found something behind a little protective case/plastic type thing that was buttoned close.

Looked like the ABS pump and possible ECU somewhere around as well.





Am I looking in the right place or is this something totally different? If that's right, what should be my next step?

Thanks,
Berch
