Unhappy

I just installed a new alarm system in my car today and after I finished everything and started the car , the ABS lamp wouldn't go off anymore

While installing the alarm I did pulled out the jack from the ECM. Can this be the cause ?

How can I check what is wrong and how can I get it away ??? used

Thank you in advance.

I just realized that I actually pulled out the jack from the ABS computer not from the ECU.
Will the lamp not go off by itself ? Need a reset from the dealer ? Can it be reset ?

i think its a dealer reset, unless you have the tools to do it yourself...d/c the negative from the battery wont reset it, so dont waste ur time. ask around and see if anyone (from this forum) lives nearby you, and if they got the reset tool...good luck

You think gas is expensive? CHECK THIS OUT:

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 .......... $10.32 per gallon

Dude those are really tight rims! What did those run you for purchase and install price? If you don't mind me asking.

We live in DK , so if I tell you some sky high prices ...........
Wheels are 18" Hamman and costed like 1300$ without tires , and for the tires I paid like 800$ ... but remember we live in DK.


@llzoom_zoomll :

I think I will just do this today and see after that if this is actually the fail or something really fuxed up during install.

this may seem silly and I'm sure you've done this but check fuses and relays maybe?

First thank you all for the support.
Problem solved.
I just took off the battery for 10 minutes , set it on again and the fail is gone
So this might be a first step to do if other people have similar problems.

Then if you have electrical windows REMEMBER to take the windows all the way up before taking the battery off , else you might have to run the window up "manually" with wires directly from the battery.

Everything ok now
