ABS Warning light, troubleshooting, and clearing the fault

About 1,200 miles into my trip to Wisconsin and back when the yellow ABS indicator lamp comes on. It's only a yellow warning, so I finish my trip, then go to the ACA tech library for help. There it is..the Meritor Wabco ABS manual. I found the switch needed to do the blink code diagnostics in the bottom right corner of the firewall, clearly labeled, by the passenger's right foot. The diagnostic sent me to the Driver's front wheel, where I found a broken wire. Repaired the wire and used the same switch to clear the fault code and the light went out as soon as I drove the required 4 MPH.

Many thanks to those who have put the time and effort into that tech library.

Terry, I had a problem with the abs light and solved it by going to the battery compartment and in the fuse panel in the back there is a relay maybe 2 inches long and 1/2 inches square or so and it was just loose in the socket. if almost fell out in my hand and it goes to the abs system.. pull it out, squeeze the contacts some to make them fit back into the socket tighter.. haven't had a problem since and others owners did the same thing. may do it or may not. good luck.

Melorene,
Thanks for the info on how you cured your ABS light problem in the battery box panel. Just a loose relay that's good to know.

However, since there are a lot of different systems out there in the Alpine world, it would be nice to know what year? model ?size? etc. you have. This info may only apply to your year. It may apply to earlier or later coaches than yours but it's a starting point. Knowing when WRV made changes is difficult. If you always put it in the with your signature line then we all know what year and model your talking about.

On my 06 Apex none of these suggestions work and I still have my yellow ABS light on and its been on for over 3 years. I have a friend who said he knew how to fix it and so he went to the spot to fix it and nothing was there to fix. I believe we are wired differently than most.

Hey Lyle, put a piece of black electrical tape over the light like people used to do on their VCR flashing lights.
