Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 08:45 PM about the 1996 Infiniti G20

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Infiniti G20 (manual trans). The ABS light has been coming on when I start it up, killing the radio...ABS light goes out and radio back on when coasting...only to light up (radio out again) when I accelerate. This has only happened on cold mornings and stopped when the car has warmed up. Now the ABS light is coming on when I use the power windows, Heat, Radio (whether it's warmed up or not) preceded by the car stalling or trying to stall. Can I just pull the ABS relay, or is my car possessed by demons? Thank you!

yes the demon is the dodgy connection between the battery cable and the chassis ground....this point has a bolt...undo the bolt..wirebrush the chassis...wirebrush the lug bolt them together to assure a solid 300 or more cold cranking amps....get a NEW battery as five years old is a grandpa for the new tin/antimony alloy ones that have no lead in them anymore~
