I am looking at a 2003 Audi Quattro Avant 3.0 with 144k. Asking $2,300. I had noticed the ABS and Traction Control Light on. I asked for a scan and this what they came back. Code 00290, 00287, and 01435. Both rear speed sensor and the ABS module. I was wonder it the speed sensors being bad/dirty/wire issue could flag a false ABS module as being bad. Should I run away or try to fix it? Thanks
Tell them to fix it then call you . Surely you have been coming to this site enough to now know that an old used European vehicle can be very expensive to repair . There are thousands of used vehicles on the market that don’t start out needing repairs.
Is the car worth $4600 to you? 'Cause even if you fix this yourself you’ll have another $2300 in this car trying to fix it. Audi parts are not cheap.
Or can you live with it broken? If so, you don’t need to ask us this question.
Audi = A VW with lock washers.
