1991 Jaguar XJS V12 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 48,000 miles
Everytime I step on the brake pedal, the ABS pump will come on, if I keep holding the brake pedal, after about 5 seconds the brake light will come on, then after another 4 seconds the ABS light will come on also. After I remove my foot from the pedal, the pump wil keep running, and about 6 seconds later - the ABS light will turn off (pump still running), then about 5 seconds later the Brake light will turn off (pump still running), then about 6 seconds later the pump sounds like it is working against pressure and it will stop running. Everything is happy untill I get to the next stop sign, then the whole story starts over again. If I need to wait at a stop light (holding the brake) - the pump just keeps running (I don't think thats good for the pump).
I'm pretty sure that I need to replace the accumulator. Looks easy enough, just unscrew the old one and screw the new one in?
There is a BIG warning on top of the old one, "Do Not Remove. High Pressure Brake Fluid"
Well, I'm pretty sure that if I pump the brake a few times - there isn't much pressure left in there. Anybody replaced one before?
have the same problem?
