The Teves MK70 (ATE) ABS unit is fitted to the Citroen C2 & C3 models and has been known to suffer with similar design flaws as the earlier Teves MK60 ATE ABS pump which as many unfortunate customers have experienced, were a nightmare. Both units have internally built pressure sensors with a low maximum pressure rating and have identical common failures.
Common Teves MK70 ATE ABS Pump Problems:
There are many problems that have been identified with the Teves MK70 ATE, and below are just a selection of the most common ones we have found when repairing them at our workshop:
- Brake Pressure Sensor
- ESP / ASR / TCS / DCS (Traction) Light On
- ABS Light On
- No Communication Fault
- Wheel Speed Sensor Faults
By investigating the vehicle diagnostics with an appropriate scan tool, the fault code is recorded relating to the wheel speed sensor. If the fault still exists after replacing the offending sensor, then the ABS module would then be scrutinised further. Another fault that could occur is the inability to communicate with the ABS system, and we are also aware that water ingress can cause / contribute to these failures, however, both can be tested thoroughly with our in house testing facilities.
