Abs light on r34 skyline


Recommended Posts

So other night i did few hard braking and abs light is now on and no abs. Wheels do lock up

 

i have link g4 on my 1998 r34 gtt which has usb interface but i think that only replaces the ecu as I still have consult port

 

what I am not sure is if consult os reading and accessing ecu through the old ecu

so i bought consult and tried both consultz and nissan data scan 1 and neighbours can access the ecu or any other ecu as hicas was also removed

 

so i googled ans jumped pin 4 and 8 and still no flashing on abs light indicating what the problem is

 

read the link ecu and had no error and it is locked by tuner so can't access it

 

what are my options here to read abs fault and fix it?

No. Take it to a mechanic who has a PROPER scan tool. Made by Snap-On, or any of the other $10000+ workshop grade scan tools that will connect to and read from EVERY make and model (with the appropriate licenses, of course).

Consultz and Nissdatascan etc are NOT proper scan tools. They are a valiant effort by talented amateurs.

right but where is the joy of fixing it yourself?

Link ECU replaces the main ecu as it is plug in so my question was does consult port uses the standard ecu to connect to hicas and abs etc / in another word, were you able to only access them throuugh standard ecu even though they were different ecus?

 

has anyone read abs module codes on nissan skyline and if so what software and port have you used

The joy is in getting the problem identified, because you cannot do it yourself unless you have drug money.

All CUs are on the same Consult bus. Access to the others is not mediated by the ECU.

I already told you - there is nothing out there. You need a workshop grade scan tool. This is a large handheld device that comes in a blow-mould case with a bunch of different cables that allows you to hook it up to diag ports on Nissans, Hondas, Toyos, BMWs......get the theme here? Or, you need an actual Nissan Consult tool. Same thing, just limited to Nissan only and more guaranteed to have the correct protocols and lookups for every Nissan.

There is only one diag port on your car. The Consult port.

Took it to two nissan dealer and they won't touch it as it has link ecu

thinking independent garage but haven't found reputable one

 

you can buy consult on ebay for relatively cheap price, does anyone know if there is a consult bus such as can so all ecus can be reachable via a bus lane without going through main ecu?

Yes, that is the definition of Nissan Consult. All the CUs are on the bus.

Any Snap-On, or similar scan tol, as possessed by ANY decent mechanic these days, WILL read all the CUs. I worked out what was wrong with my HICAS using a workshop grade scan tool.....20 years ago.

so I mapped the pins as per this link and my maxicom does not support it

it looks as I am out of any options, can't find any consult 1 or consult 2 reader. 

as i understand consult 3 or consult 3 plus won't support my car. about to pull my hair.

so here is my experience and update for people in similar situation 

 

https://www.autelstore.co.uk/wholesale/autel-maxicom-mk808-diagnostic-tool.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAqo3-BRDoARIsAE5vnaKsLh-sn8cKvzkdH1CrqG3mb3u-DT01nvn1Y5rBSiwnTwzv8FPTw-MaAvC_EALw_wcB

can read skyline r34 however doesn't have consult port adaptor.

 

so also bought below and confirmed it can read abs. I used the adaptor from consult to OBD and confirmed the Autel can also read the abs module.

I will map the pins using my multi meter and post back for anyone in similar situation in the future.

I saw a code saying ABS motor off, so back to basics, fuse was gone. Ouch that hearts by missing the most simple thing and going to get ecu to read it

    • Hey all, my V35's front balljoints and lower control arm bushes are shot, so will have to buy some new ones. Just want to check if these are the correct ones and if y'all have any places within AU that supply these parts, or would I be better off shipping some in from the US (z1, concept z, etc)? I'm currently in ACT.  I'm looking for sparkplugs as well but can't seem to find them locally. I found this site that sells Mevotech ball joints: https://www.kudosmotorsports.com/catalog/front-ball-joint-lower-outer-nissan-z33v35am35-p-1990.html Lower control arm: https://justjap.com/products/sterling-front-lower-control-arm-r-h-straight-fits-nissan-m35-stagea-v35-skyline-z33-350z?variant=44217571377351&currency=AUD&utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=Advanced feed&utm_content=Sterling Front Lower Control Arm R%2FH (Straight) Fits Nissan M35 Stagea%2C V35 Skyline %26 Z33 350Z&utm_campaign=gs-2022-07-20&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign&gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwps-zBhAiEiwALwsVYYAaGCq4d8TaCWYiuo62l_F9zi69FBW9ErruC5gpxu_euNqnxjPa_BoC6FcQAvD_BwE
    • Hey just wanting to know if a R34 gtr wheel hub will bolt onto a R34gt rear knuckle?  I am doing a 350z lsd conversion and I came across an issue with the rear axles fitting into the wheel hub as the spline count is different. I think the r33/4 (GTR)wheel hubs are 32 spline while the standard 3x2 rear axles are about 28,  the 350z rear axles I’m using are also 32 spline so I don’t see why it won’t fit apart from where the hubs bolt onto the knuckle  I am not 100% sure about any of this and would like some info before I go mix n match and help would be appreciated.🙏  
    • There is none when used in the radius rods. I am a strong advocate of sphericals in that location.
    • Oh damn, thats seriously cool. I have the Thrustmaster T248 which is the entry level one. Its really good but I have no basis for comparison as I've never used a better one. I'd like to change the pedals for the pressure ones (cant remember the name) and get a proper frame and seat because I just have a stand for the pedals and wheel now and I need to brace them against things so they dont move when I'm trying to pull up after a long straight! 🤣 EDIT: These ones; https://www.thrustmaster.com/products/t-lcm-pedals/
