The Teves MK70 (ATE) ABS unit is fitted to many of the Ford models which include the C Max, Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Ka and Transit. It has been diagnosed with almost as many issues and design flaws as the earlier Teves MK60 ATE ABS pump. Any customers that are familiar with the issues experienced with the Teves MK60 will know how much of a nightmare they were. Both units have pressure sensors integrated internally within the unit with a low maximum pressure rating, and have suffered identical common failures.
Common Teves MK70 ATE ABS Pump Failures
We have received many many Teves MK70 ATE ABS pumps at our workshop and have compiled a list of the most common faults that are assosciated with this unit:
- Brake Pressure Sensor (C1288)
- ESP / ASR / TCS / DCS (Traction) Light On
- ABS Light On
- No Communication Fault
- Wheel Speed Sensor Faults
Faults are normally investigated by carrying out the vehicle diagnostics and recording the fault code relating to the wheel speed sensor. If after replacing the faulty sensor, the issue still exists, then the ABS unit would be scrutinised further. We are also aware that occasionally water ingress can cause / contribute to these failures, and that another fault that can also occur is the inability to communicate with the ABS unit at all, however, both of these faults can be tested thoroughly with our in house testing facilities.
