      Title pretty much states it. A while back both my ABS and my ESP light would come on after I reached a speed of 18mph. After some research here I figured it was just a dirty sensor. So I cleaned the front ones and still havent got around to the rear, but I told my mechanic to scan it. He says I need a new ABS pump which I am hoping to hell he is wrong. Printout says...


      01276-ABS Hydraulic Pump(V64)
      008-Implausible Signal - Intermittent
      008-Implausible Signal - Intermittent


      So I am hoping it is just dirty or unplugged and not the ABS pump. Help

      No one replied so I was actually going to let this die, but I searched that code here and found something about the fuese on the top of the battery making a bad connection. So I pulled them and put them back in, light has been off for a few days now.

      Not sure if it was just that or if it still needs one but we will see.

      well damn i have had mine on for awhile now, at first it was like a brake light that went out, then a reverse light and I replaced it, but now all my lights are working and I still have those lights on my dash...hopefully its just a dirty sensor or a bad fuse but who knows...
