Gentlemen,

I am very new to this platform. My mom drives a 2010 model Toyota Corolla and as of today, mileage is less than 10,000km. Meaning it is hardly ever used.

The abs light came on and I took it to a foremost toyota dealer, where it was diagnosed that the actuator is bad. I got a bill of over N400k to fix this, the actuator being quoted as N390k+. Really scary sums. What other checks can I do,or ways can I solve this problem, or can someone please give me a thread where I can check the cost of this stuff, and maybe import it.

It was bought in 2011, and just missed out on the warranty cover.

Actuator died at 10,000km? That's hard to belive, geta a second opinion, re-scan in a smaller shop and have them unclip the the sockets of the abs actuator to look for signs of corrosion on the copper contacts, let them check relays and fuses related to abs. When
Don I'm sure they will test actuator with their scanner and see if it pumps, if that fails then you can consider getting a new one but I doubt it would be so expensive. Ill check prices of new and tokumbor and get back to you.

Even the SBC on the Mercedes doesn't cost that much. Did he scan the ABS? Did you see the code and the result?

Ikenna351: Hi all,

Anyone who knows Philip Ken a car dealer at Ikeja (Kenmogee autos) should avoid dealing with him. He is a scammer. He has just been recently arrested for scamming people indisguise of selling cars to them! I am personally one of the people he scammed. I will upload his pictures later to save others from falling into his trap. More Update coming soon about his matter in court!!I realised there is a need for us to have a thread where we can say it very loud. Hence, the creation of this room.

In this room, we can derail as much as we want, discuss off topics, etc.

But please, no derogatory words, sales, adverts, spams or posting. Other than these, fire on!

*Note that this room is not for posting our normal car issues and seeking solutions for them. We have the entire section, outside this room, for that.
