(Ford Probe) Checked ABS error codes now car wont start!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Sorry for this being a Ford Probe and not a mazda - But I think there pretty much the same? Feel free to delete if I'm wrong. Im going bonkers and any help is greatly appreciated:

Hey guys,
pulling my hair out. Everything was running fine apart from the ABS light was on. Followed the advice for getting the ABS error codes and now the car wont start. The engine turns over but nothing electronic seems to happen. Checked the battery - thats fine. A few other points:

- We reset the ECU whilst getting the codes (Disconnected the negative terminal of the battery and held down the brake pedal for 5 minutes.) 
- We've checked all the fuses and they are all fine.
- I'm pretty sure we shorted the right boxes - TBS and GND - but is it possible we bridged the wrong ones. Would this cause serious damage, and how could we find out if this is what we've done?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated as I'm not even sure where to start here. The immobiliser acts normal - Slow blinking until the key fob is pressed, then a solid blink and then its out.

Thanks.

I can only suggest check over every fuse.  Edit:  I would try and narrow down whether it's spark or fuel.  Plug removed and place near the engine and look for spark. Or starting fluid.  So you can decide the course of action determining why one of those is missing.
