HI,

I have Hyundai i20 Feb 2010 model asta. And its now out of the warranty period. While buying the vehicle i was excited with all the flashy features of the cars of which one was the ABS system which is becoming quite problematic now

So the ABS sign has been showing on my dashboard since quiet sometime, because of which the break paddle gets jammed sometimes when i am in low speed, below 20kmps. i recently visited the hyundai service centre which i am always reluctant to do as the costs suggested by them are exorbitant, which was the case now as well. so the technician applied the GSCAN tried to get rid of the ABS sign which reappeared as soon as i left the service centre. The technician told me there is a problem in both the braking parts in the rare wheel and even the ABS motor is showing some problem

The solution provided
Change One braking part in the rare wheel and see if the errors go - Costing me some Rs 6000
If the error persists change the other braking part of the rare wheel and the motor with a total cost of Rs 42000 which is ridiculous costs.

Need some help in figuring this out and a way of managing this issue. Can the ABS system be deactivated and the car can be used as a non abs car. Or any other suggestion will be more than welcome

I have read a lot of problems regarding the I20 abs problem on this forum and many other forums will be great to find a solution which is not a killing on the pocket

Thanks in advance

Cheers
Sunny

Sunny, my name is Jim. My son had a 2018 Elantra. Early one morning, on his way to work, he began braking for a red light. Road conditions were very dry. As he got near the light, his ABS engaged, releasing his brakes and he could not stop.
There was another car going through the green light, and my son's car hit that vehicle. He told the cops, but they just blew him off. He explained to me exactly what he experienced, and it was classic ABS engaging.
I know Hyundai has problems with liquid, water mostly, but even condensation, getting into the ABS electronics due to a sealing problem.
While many of the symptoms are engine compartment fires, premature ABS engagement on dry roads, especially at lower speeds, can cause serious or even fatal accidents.
I am seeking anyone who has experienced premature ABS system engaging in dry conditions, especially when trying to brake the car at lower speeds.
