2000 Jaguar XJ8 Question: ABS light, ASC and TRAC unavailable messages

 

Question

Similar to "Anonymous, Fort Washington, MD, May 24, 2010, 14:10". I have intermitent ABS warning light, ASC and TRAC warning messages - all 3 come on together. Usually OK when I start up, they come on when I hit a bump. Gradually getting worse - i.e. smaller and smaller bumps. Fully expect this to become permanent soon. The bumping aspect points to some kind of loose wire or plug, all three coming on at the same time points to some kind of common item. Maybe a loose cable harness plug or a corroded connection somewhere - any ideas?

    As expected problem became permanent for around 6 months - although car seems to handle exactly as before. Then started becoming intermittent again. Problem messages for a few days, the OK for a few days. Handling, stopping seem unaffected. Adrian

    you have to replace (rebuilt) the ABS Module. Cost $60 look for ABS rebuild modules
