Default Code C1217 of ABS...

I was able to clear the other codes in relation to the ABS, and Traction Control light on... and C1217 remains on. Could anyone please tell me what to do from this point...as to trouble shoot. I already paid $45.00 to have it scan. I hope is the only amount to spend.

Thank you guys.

Can you please check that code in Techinfo and post the description text here so we don't all have to look it up for you?

That depends on where the relay is. The Pump itself is part of the PMV assembly under your airbox. If the relay is internal, you'll have to replace that. If it'* somewhere else in the car, you may be able to replace it alone. We'll need someone with a FSM for your year to confirm the location.

I'm sorry Will,

where is the airbox?

Replace the PMV Pump or the Relay inside the PMV Pump, if the relay is in the PMV pump-what'* PMV?

Where is your PMV PUMP Relay located?

What'* FSM?

thanks

The airbox is the thing your air filter is in just behind your headlight under the hood. Big black pipe goes from that to your throttle body mounted to the supercharger.

The PMV is the pressure modulator valve assembly. Under the airbox, and has a small brake fluid reservior, a round pump body, and a manifold with brake lines. It'* expensive. We don't know if your failed relay is inside the PMV or elsewhere in the car. If it'* in the PMV, you'll have to either replace the PMV or live without ABS.

My PMV pump relay may be in a different location than yours, because my year uses a totally different style of ABS than yours. FSM is FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL.

Will I got it,

Fuse in the fuse Center rear top of engine. 40amp fuse blown. Luckly there was a spare with the same amperage.

ABS TRACTION lights off!!!!

Thank you so much for your help... seems like today was my day. I fixed two problems.
The second problem was the idler pulley. Succesfully replaced with the help of sonoma_zr2 and the rest of the gang.
