ABS sensor

Post by douglas851 » Thu Sep 10, 2009 9:09 pm


The rear abs sensor has gone open ciruit inside the sensor, so I need a new one.

Citroen quote £200 :shock:

Does anyone know a supply of cheaper ones?

Thanks, Douglas

Hey Douglas,

I just sent you a message on the BX club forum.
I've got one for you, we'll just need to sort out what the shipping cost will be.
I'll try to find out what the shipping costs are to get it over to your house!

Xantia-ones fit also. Are much more cheaper. But you have to sold the wires together.

Learn something new everyday, even if it is from a long time ago.

I did not know I could sub the Xantia units doing that. That is going to save a few headaches for trying to locate the "right one".

I found with the Xantia one that the cable had to be spliced together, which was ok when the car was at idle and not moving but at above 10mph the dashlight would come on.

Probalby a sign of how good my wiring is, but this would get it through an MOT :lol:

I currently have a good contact with an instrumentation and sensor company that might be able to assist us with getting replacement ABS leads made up, will keep you all posted.
