ABS Fault

Hi all,

Iím having an issue with our 2001 R50 Cooper Auto. The ABS and ASC lights have been on ever since we brought it after the seller hit a pot hole. The brakes work fine but MOT time is coming up soon so we need to get the fault rectified.

I have connected to the module using INPA and it returns a fault saying ĎInternal Processer Failureí. I canít remember the fault code off the top of my head (I can find it if necessary). Reading around there seems to be all different fixes for the fault, including replacing the module. The P/N on the circuit board side of the module is 6 758 803; but these seem to be very few and far between for replacement to be an option. Very occasionally the lights actually go out for approx. 10 miles or so it is intermittent.

Any ideas what the fault is likely to be?

common abs module failure on gen 1 all you need to do is find a mini breaking same year and spec car, ie mini one 2002 find likewise, when its replaced it will self check and switch off lights, also before changing it check the multi-plug to it for corrosion

Thanks for the response. Can you confirm if the part numbers need to match up exactly? Trying to find one with the same part numbers is proving to be quite a challenge.

Are their any other known fixes we can try first?

would check got power going to it check fuses, any abs module from a 2002 same spec car will fit, ie if its a cooper s get one from a cooper s or just a cooper same again, or mini one find a 2002 mini module and fit it,
