    Hi, if the Cruise Control cancellation switch is faulty would the ABS be inoperable?

    Still havent had the time to investigate further but I dont have ABS as breaking is not very good to say the least and I only fitted new EBC discs and pads 6 weeks ago. Also I get this little electrical whine whenever I press the brake.

    Hi Aquanuke
    Not sure about the ABS, I didn't spend much time with the faulty switch in place to experiment, but I believe the Cruise Control would not cancel when the brake is applied. You possibly could not set the Cruise as well. The Brake lights continued to work for some reason as this is the only switch on the pedal.


    I was trying to find a squeek when the brake pedal was applied and accidentally shoved the armiture into the switch body when I pushed it too hard. When I pulled it back out the contact inside broke away.
    When the fault appeared I knew where to go. Btw the new switch fixed the squeek, but was expensive at $90Au for a couple of pieces of plastic with 3 contacts and connectors.

    Finally got round to doing this..

    Got a used accumulator on ebay for £30. Took a couple of minutes to do the job. I pumped the pedal 30 times and got a spanner (20mm I think), theres a nut just above the thread, gave the spanner a little tap with a hammer and came straight off. The chap I bought it from even put a new O ring on.

    Warning lights have gone and brakes work fine again. I put a 2" nail in the old one and couldnt feel anything, the replacement one only went in about 1" before it hit the thing inside.. so hopefully should be plenty of life left in this one.

    Same Problem

    I have been having the same problem. ABS fault, and Traction Control Fault. I figured it needed new bads as my brakes were squeeking a little. However I just went out to drive it and it won't come out of park. I will wait for an assitant to check the brake lights. Any other suggestions????

    Make sure all of your pedal connectors are clean and firmly set. It sounds likt your sift interlock is disconnected.
