440 - ABS-System defect?

Discussion in 'Volvo 440' started by Torsten Beekhuis, Jul 16, 2004.

  1. Hi !

    According to the blink-codes of the ABS-System/Controlling-unit it has
    several(8 !) failures. All of them say that there is a failure in the
    controller system (short-cuts, broken links, etc.).

    Is it possible to exchange the controller-unit only (B18U, model 1994,
    ABS by ATE), or do I have to exchange the whole unit???

    Any hints to re-check against the blink-codes?


    Best Regards, Torsten

    In a word, YES it is possible to change the controller. I think it might be in a
    similar location to that on the 480 which is in the left hand cubby hole (with
    detachable lid) just ahead of the rear lights.

    Cheers, Peter.

  3. Hi Peter Milnes !
    Mmh. My car has it un der the hood, mounted at the right side of the
    ABS-hydraulic-block. Or am I wrong?
    This is one reason for my question, if it is exchangeable (for a
    non-mechanic)?


    Best Regards, Torsten

    If it has a connector that can be unplugged then it can be changed. Make sure to
    match the type numbers though.

    Cheers, Peter.
