abs fault

I have a 2007 newmar with the abs fault lite coming on on my information system. I went into diagnostics to read fault and it says MID 136 brakes on first line and SID 7 FMI 6 on second line. Anybody have any idea what this means , trying to figure out where to start. thanks Don

Hi and welcome to the forum.

ABS sensors are notorious for getting dirty and giving faults. Use our search function and you'll find a lot of discussion on how to clean them. On my rig just spraying the undercarriage with a hose did the trick but sometimes removal of the sensors is required to do the job right.

Good luck.

Hi donsolcars,
Welcome to posting on iRV2. The code means there is a short to ground. To diagnose the problem one needs to check continuity between pin 2 of the X2 (black) connector and
ground, and pin 10 of the X2 connector and ground. If continuity exists in either pin, the valve is shorted to ground. This is for the left front modulator valve.

The information on most all fault codes can be found at
