Have heard also in the event of some more serious accidents, ABS records stored in ECU are or can be accessed by Insurance companies/ accident investigators to check the cars involved did not have faulty ABS systems. I do not think removing bulbs is a good idea at all on many levels and is not a quick fix to get an MOT- Just fix the damn ABS!

Your comments directed to me are very rude. Never did i mention 50/50 and never did i says it's better not to have ABS. In fact i've told the opposite. You're not reading very carefully. But i will not revisit this topic as you have already presented your attitude well enough. Have a nice day.

Telling me I would have 'stopped better without ABS' (amongst other things), is suggesting it maybe better to not have it (as I apparently would have stopped better)!!... yea whatever anyway. Thumbs Up

Again, i'm not against ABS, just saying you can do without it, and depending on the situation it's a better/worse choice.




If Nissan thought it wasnt needed they could of saved millions on fitting it. ABS is a proven safety feature so removing it or bulbs whilst ignoring faults they maybe there is at best foolish

^^ Yes exactly.
Until you have to make a damn serious emergency stop (and your life flashes before you at that time... really its not funny)... and you make it by 3 feet, then you may then you totally appreciate that a well maintained and optimally functioning brake system(as is designed on the car) may have saved your life or someone elses... then you realise the utter importance...

It could save lives, prevent injury; as was probably intended by Nissan in all their vast wisdom, thats why they made it... not 'for fun or to waste money' as Norm says.

If anyone is having issues with ABS and has the sense to fix it rather than removing bulbs(!)- then I think you can short out pin4 on Datalink connector to earth and this will pulse the ABS light as to if there are errors and what the problem is maybe.
Check out this link (think for P11 but may possibly translate onto later variants (very useful): - http://www.npoc.co.uk/forum/p11-abs-system-diagnostic_topic48583.html
