Re:Constantly flashing amber ABS light

I have a 2003 Jimny 1.3 JLX mode MT, manual transmission, 90,000 miles on the clock. The ABS light is constantly flashing amber from the time the ignition is switched on until switched off. Diagnostics indicate no DTC's. The local garage has checked that the ABS is working as are the sensors. Removing the fuse makes the light glow continuously amber, indicating a fault. The light is not meant to flash at all.
I've been told this problem is an MOT failure, which would be dreadful for me, plus it all seems to be working correctly apart from a flashing light. Please ca anyone help? Thank you

Thank you Martin. Sadly, I have the technical ability of a pebble, but have bought a OBD2 scan tool and downloaded a Suzuki app which tells me that there are no faults on the ABS/ESP to clear. Do you think that getting someone to do the manual thing that the link suggested, will give a different answer? Thank you!

I think it might as depending on the age of the vehicle it is the only way to read the abs fault

If you enter your whereabouts area wise then a member might volunteer to help you out. I am in Stoke on Trent by the way.

Rereading your initial entry it might be a electrical wiring fault as opposed to a actual ABS components fault. Does your scanner have the facility to supply Live Data? If so connect it and select that and the abs page and try a drive and see what it comes up with. Good idea to have a helper either drive it or control the reader!

Thanks for your thought. We did what you suggested, but no fault detected. I had previously booked the car back into the garage for the 3rd time, to see if they could detect a fault. They did manage to stop the flashing light, but don't know how! I think I need to get it back there quickly for an MOT before the flashing starts again. Many thanks for your help and support.

Whilst driving with the reader on did the light stay on? What did they do the 3rd time in the garage? They must have done something if they asked you for payment surely?
