    Default Just Realized that my ABS...

    I was reseting my ECU chip when i saw that my two ABS fuses are missing... Its not those fuses you can buy at pepboys though, its those cube like ones.... my question is what should i do? Are they missing for a reason? Did the previous owner take them off for a reason? What difference does it make that they aren't put in? Am I gonna die fro brake faliurE! lol jk...but really what should i do? r ur guys fuses in?

    Does your car have ABS? Hyundai doesn't install the fuses for ABS if the car is not equipped with ABS. Installing the fuses will do nothing if the car doesn't have ABS.

    FYI, those are fusible links, not standard fuses. They look like these:


    And yes, they can be purchased at Pep Boys.

    If you have ABS, you will have an "ABS Control Module" on the passenger side of the engine compartment that looks like this:





    If that's not there, you don't have ABS.

    If you'd have abs, but no fuses, you'd have the ABS light on.

    I had a RL friend freak out about the same thing two weeks ago. They didn't have ABS. This was on a 03 GT sedan, I thought all GTs showed up with ABS. nope

    The big difference here was she didn't realize ABS was antilock brake system, and thought she was missing an Air bag fuse (ABS = Air Bag System for her I guess)

    I don't have ABS, therefore no ABS fuses.

    If i filled my gas tank with half Shell with V-Power, and the other half with Chevron with Techron gas...does that mean that my gas is V-TEC?

    Unless the bulb for the ABS light is burnt out or removed.

    I think it would be time to go find out who is removing fuses and bulbs that deal with safety systems in my car. Then maybe hire a private investigator to figure out why they are doing that.......

    Yea why not, we could also say "If the wire that goes to the cluster is not burnt", "if the abs module is still there", "if the car does not have a computer anymore", "If the car really exists"...

    You dont have ABS dude. If you did, your abs light would be on due to the fact of there being no fuses. I dont have ABS and there are no fuses present. Being that you are an XD2 i would think you have ABS. thats weird. Also check and see if you have an ABS module, it sits right in front of the washer fluid reservor neck. If its not there you will see 3 or 4 tapped holes where it's suppost to bolt on

    My point is, just because there is no light, doesn't mean there is no ABS. The ONLY way to know for SURE if you have ABS or not is to see if there is an ABS module or not. No ABS module = No ABS.

    Again, no light does not prove there is no ABS.

    My 03 XD GT sedan never had ABS either.

    Its just an option package.

    More GT's had ABS, but it was a pretty expensive option that included traction control and a sunroof on the XD. Dont think GLS was offered with ABS till XD2
