Re: ABS problems Q4

As I remember it differs between versions, main fuse on mine was under the hood on the firewall, near the coolant reservoir, just stuck on there. I think there should be some photos in the other thread but in case you don't find it let me know and maybe I'll dig out some more photos. I know it can ...

Re: Hydraulic pressure, value too low

Be aware of this, it may be difficult to make.

But it definitely is something worth checking, as that would restrict flow.

Re: Hydraulic pressure, value too low

Your signature contains 2 Q4's :) Is the other one running? If so, you can put the tester on that and see the pressure level.

From memory the 4WD system goes up to app. 100 bar when fully functional.

All the values should be in the manual, which I assume you have downloaded?

Re: Hydraulic pressure, value too low

I don't have more details, can only refer to all the other threads and the manuals. But it seems strange that the pressure dropped after replacing the sensor. If you haven't done it, I suggest to clean the plugs to the viscomatic box. Even though it has become quiet on this site, some people might c...

Re: Hydraulic pressure, value too low

Also, does the light come on immediately when starting the engine, when driving and going above a certain speed or...?

If you erase the error code when driving, does the light come on again?

All of this can indicate where the problem lies.

Re: Hydraulic pressure, value too low

I don't have other suggestions. Otherwise you have to go through the trouble shooting in the user manual and take it step by step.

There are more threads about the 4WD here, where different things have been tried.

Re: 164 Celebrity Race

I found this amongst the 164 manuals I got hold of recently (see other thread). It is in Swedish, but it at least describes what the intention was with the race series - publicity.

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

Not much has happened, but I still drive the Q4 around the building some times. Still runs and sounds fine!

Hopefully this fall/winter will give time to get started on some engine work...

At least it got a good wash to get rid of the dust and did so in good company 8)
