Worst ABS Module Ever

Hello everyone. I just wanted to show a quick pic of the an ABS module I came across a couple of days ago.

This module is in the worst condition I have aver seen on a truck.

The vehicle in question is a 2001 Sterling sand spreader which is a former county or municipal truck now owned by a private company.

A DOT inspection found that the ABS light failed to prove out. In other words, the light would not come on with the key on. Fuses were good and I seemed to have power everywhere, the bulb was good, so I went under the truck for a look.

I have seen Wabco modules with cracked cases due to corrosion expansion, but have never seen one with the circuit board completely exposed. Obviously the ABS hasn't worked for awhile.

After I removed the connectors from the module to check their condition, the ABS light came on and remains lit. Two of the pins in one connector will need replacement, as they broke off the module and are stuck in the connector.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pic; it was dark under there.

Needless to say, the ABS on this truck didn't work.

DT466E No Start Diagnostic book, Improved Second Edition

The second edition of my DT466E No Start Diagnostic repair manual is available for purchase.

The No Start book is now even better with:

  • wiring diagrams of the IDM/ECM circuits 
  • updated specs 
  • some wording changes for better readability 
  • the PDF bookmarks have been improved for easier document searching.

Anyone who purchased the first edition can get the new book free by sending an email to the address included with the disc. Just put something like "no start second edition" in the email subject and I will send a zip file with the new book.

The 2nd edition can be purchased at the same sales points as before, at the same low price as before.
