I did the diagnostics and I got code 52: abnormal motor or motor relay

I tried switching out the two abs fuses inside the car but that didn't help

What next?

As far as I have read the start code is 11. Would really appreciate any clarity on this!

Thanks a lot! The light was on but I cleared it doing the steps on the previous page. Obviously I know this didn't fix it but at least they are cleared. Thanks again! So abnormal valve relay huh? How do I fix that?

Probably needs to be replaced. If you're in warranty I'd bring it down to subaru and have them look into it. Don't mention anything other than my abs light came on.

There is a procedure in the 04 STI manual to check the circuit. I'll have to get back to you on it when I get home.

After doing ALOT of research it would seem the 08+ subies only way to retrieve abs codes is with the high priced scan tool? Or does this mythical black connector truly reside in my vehicle somewhere. If anyone knows the whereabouts PLEASE help me out...THANKS

Default fuprpect?

I have tried to check/clear my codes half a dozen times and every time I get the one long and one short (1.1) which should be; no codes...all is right, right?
No... 3 seconds after engine start up I get the ABS light?
I have brought the car into the dealer and they could not get their computer to connect to my car??? They said I have the first car that the factory Subaru computer could not read... They then handed my keys back and apologized for not being able to read or reset the ABS light. Although they did not charge me, I still do not have ABS and I am staring into the light all the time.
Please help with my 04 STI

it's normal for the abs light to come on during start up. it's if it doesn't go away that's a problem. if you've reset it and you get the 11 start code that should mean no code and your in the clear. check the lateral g sensor under your e-brake console area. it's black and attached to a bracket with two 10mm or 12mm bolt secured to the chassis. also one of my wires at my abs compressor (passenger side inside the engine bay) broke for some reason.. check that. That's where the ECU is for the ABS. you should get about 2.5 +/- 0.2V at the g sensor on your STI.

If the subaru select monitor couldn't connect to your ECU that's pretty weird... do you have an accessport or ECU mods?

I installed a hydraulic e brake and the bracket that holds the sensors was shifted 90 degrees. I mounted it correctly and all is clear!

Question

At any rate, this plug does not look like the drawings of the plug shown in various pics in this thread. It also is attached to the dash, not free-floating, and it's nowhere near the green diag-plugs (relatively speaking). It's probably 1.5" long and .5" tall.

It is the only plug with two wires taped to it that I can find.

Does anyone know if this is the elusive ABS diag-plug + pins for an '05 STi? Further, if this is it... which terminal in the grey plug do you put a wire into?... there appears to be no actual terminal in the lower-right pin-hole in this grey plug.
Does anyone ever cleared that out? Looks like it is the right connector, but 6pin is empty!



Luckily I found ABS DTC #25 using this diagnostic procedure...

1) apply parking brake

3) dial to either 'differential locked' or 'differential free'
4) Hold accelerator pedal depressed fully.
NOTE - hold the accelerator pedal down until reading of DTC is completed
5) set the dccd dial from lock to free and back for 10 times

Read the blinks from the light.

Long blink (1.2 sec) means ten's place.
Short blink (.2 sec) means one's place

1 long + 4 short = 14

Yes and Yes. However, the bitch is easy to destroy trying to get it out.

If it's not coming out easily, the safest thing to do is to grab the arm/wing the bolt goes through and grab it with a pair of vice-grips. Then use it to twist the sensor back and forth to break the sensor free from the hole in the backing plate it's stuck into. If you just try to pull the sensor our immediately or try to knock it out from the other side, you're going to destroy the sensor. Don't ask how I know.

I'm not sure if I'm mentally challenged but erasing the code just isn't working for me. Can someone detail the steps to clear the codes before I break my back going under the dash over and over

I have pulled the code for left rear sensor, I finally got it out and it was completely encrusted in brake dust, so I cleaned it and wanted to check if that fixed it, i'm assuming even if the sensor is broken I would be able to clear the code and it would pop back up once the car starts rolling.

Thanks nasioc members

Retrieving:

1. Turn Off car
2. Locate small black connector within the same harness area of the green test connectors for flashing
3. remove black electrical tape hiding the connector pins (there are two of them)
4. use one of those pins and connect them into pin 6 of the black connector. If you're looking at the connector the clip should be on top. it's the lower right pin
5. turn ignition to On position and retrieve the codes.

Mine was 11 - 27 (newest stored - drivers side rear sensor) - 23 (oldest stored - drivers side front sensor)

Clearing:

1. Ignition Off
2. Connection test pin into pin 6 of the connector (stay under the dash)
3. While still under there turn the key to the On position of your ignition (2 clicks)
4. Fully remove pin and reconnect repeatedly. I did mine 5 times within 12 second period of time. As soon as you remove it put it back in.
5. Check by making sure the test pin is in pin 6 of the connector and turning the ignition to the On position. If you see "11" (1 long blip and 1 short blip) repeatedly one after the next then you successfully cleared your system. If you still see your codes that were pulled earlier then you need to try again. Just turn the ignition off and try again.

Hope this helps.
Here you go. Posted a page back
