View Full Version : Brake QUESTION.....please....

12-17-2001, 05:43 PM
Just bought a 1989 Nissan 240sx coupe. I don't know whether or not it's ABS or not. Anyone? I know it's got disk brakes on all 4. If that helps. Anyone?

Thank you

you could try locking up the brakes and seeing if they pulse or not http://www.freshalloy.com/
I think 240's with ABS had a sensor coming off the rear diff..... although I'm not even sure if 89's had ABS at all anyways.
Another thought could be to check the fuse box and see if there's a fuse for ABS?
LoL.. you can tell I'm stretchin it (i have no clue about the '89's). Just offering some ideas.

If equiped w/ABS, there will be an actuator located next to the firewall on the passenger side (large block w/brake lines running to it).
Also there would be a light in the instrument panel below the fuel guage. (far right- says ANTI LOCK)

the only reason I am asking is because I don't have the car here with me, and that when I am looking for calipers on the net, only front calipers show up for non ABS, and all four calipers show up for ABS models. So, the only thing that I am able to remember is that I know for sure there's disc on all four!!!

They ALL have 4 wheel discs.

I didn't mean calipers, instead, I was talking about rotors......

So you want to know if ABS vs. non-ABS rotors are different?
