I’m gonna do a very short demonstration of Autel MaxiCOM MK808 OBD2 diagnostic tool working on a Audi Q5 to reset ABS traction warning light. There was an issue that the Audi Q5 got a traction control light here.
So after connecting the car with Autel MK808 scanner by OBD, I’m gonna start now.
Diagnostics >> Audi >> System selection >> Control unit >> Brakes 1 >> Trouble codes
There are 2 fault codes: 00290 and 00473. I knew that’s not problems with ABS sensor. What I did is putting a new ABS sensor in, but it still got the warning light and trouble codes. So I will click on the button to clear all trouble codes.
Clear DTC >> Yes >> Yes >> OK
It tells “No fault codes detected”, but the warning light is still there. That is because it’s causing the back out of ABS system on the tool itself, once I’m out of the ABS system, it will turn the lights off.
Now I will exit, as you seen, the warning light has gone.
Autel MK808 OBD2 Scanner is a fantastic tool in fact, covers all of the system diagnosis. So this is how to reset ABS traction warning light for a Audi Q5.
