How do I get blink codes from Wabco ABS?

The WABCO Enhanced Easy-Stop Trailer ABS ECU detects any electrical fault in the trailer ABS. Each of the faults has a code. When a fault occurs, the ECU stores the code for that fault in its memory. The code (blink code) can be obtained using the Ignition Power Activation method (described below).

What are ABS codes?

The ABS light (usually yellow, amber or orange) should come on briefly every time you start your car as part of a system check. If the light stays on, that means something isn’t working and the system has been shut down. With ABS, sensors mounted at each wheel monitor the speed at which the wheels are turning.

What are ABS blink codes?

The WABCO Electronic Control Unit (ECU) uses a pattern of light flashes called a blink code to identify specific problems, or faults, in the ABS. The warning lamp flashes a blink code for each fault that the ECU stores in its memory, enabling a technician to repair faults and erase them from ECU memory.

What causes a trailer ABS light to come on?

During startup, when the auxiliary circuit is first powered, the ABS runs a self-check. The ABS status light comes on for 3 to 5 seconds, and you might hear the air valves “chuffing”. If the ABS status light fails to light up, blinks, or comes on and stays on, an ABS fault is indicated.
