ABS Relay Sticking - Can I Repair relay, rather than buy a new one?
Posted 25 February 2008 - 12:24 PM
It has occured just twice in 4-5 months, and a quick tap with a screwdriver stops it immediately.
Rather than buy a new relay ($$ is tight) is my relay repairable? I'm thinking that if it is just a simple mechanical problem, such as worn contacts, or something crudded-up, there may be a simple fix, especially since the relay is not totally bad.
What do you think of fixing the relay?
I know, the best thing to do is to buy a new relay. But $$ is tight, so it would be helpful to postone that outlay for awhile.
Thanks, oh gurus!

you could try diassembling it and cleaning the contacts though. they are rather simple in design and function, though i've never taken one apart.

If not a used one will work.
