98 Disco I - how to reset ABS light?
Anyway spent 2 evenings Googling about this, and found such a massive ABS-light problem reported by Land Rover Disco/RR owners, more infamous than Debbie from Dallas. What a shame! Worst is there is no good advise on how to deal with it - I gathered this is a complex problem, and you can go broke (or go crazy) if you try replacing bits by bits.
The car drives fine, but no opportunity to test to see if ABS is actually working. All I want to do is to reset the light. Some advised to jumper 2 pins on the ABS diagnostic connector to clear the code, but I was not able to find the connector in my 98 Disco I (Canadian model). Called dealer and was told one would need scantool (OBD) to reset the fault (or pay $100 to check it out) - bought one today ($130) but the OBD reader did not pulled up any fault codes (got GREEN light and no fault code).
Some suggest ignoring the light. What I worry about is not having ABS working, and I have been saved by ABS several times driving on icy mountain roads, particularly relying ABS to go downhill on icy roads.
It feels like I've reached the end of the Internet, as I can't find an easy instruction to clear the ABS light. I am looking for that one Land Rover technican who can answer this decade-old question, for all of the Disco owners.
Please, please, please...
