Default ABS fuse 1999 ME7

Hi, anyone know which fuse disables the ABS on a 1999 ME7 V70. If I pull the one that it says is the ABS, it doesn't start and if I pull the big 50 amp one in the big fuse box, the motor still runs. Got a sensor fault but need the car today really.. Thanks

You can unplug the multiconnector and the smaller power connector that goes to the ABS module below the ABS pump.

The big connector has a slide cover which you swing back and then you can unplug.

Everything else including brakes will still work, but you will get an ABS light on the dash and ABS will not cut in if you skid.

When you reconnect and go for a short drive the ABS light will go off after a self test.

PS
You can still drive with an ABS sensor fault. But no ABS if you skid.

Just to be 100% sure, test your brakes before you head off!

Hi, yes, I was considering that... but thought the main power fuse would have stopped it. It has been triggering the pump even when just driving along, but some days it doesn't do it at all. Wheels off and a good check over this weekend.
Thank you!!
