Well the brake (ABS?) sensors are located on each wheels brake assembly, the ECU for the ABS is (I think) located on the ABS pump under the bonnet.

Itís all a VERY complex system and I for one (as an ex mechanic) would be VERY wary of interfering with it!

Why are you asking the question, do you have a warning light??

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I have a problem with the gearbox saying gears unavailable,and I have been told to check the brake sensors.

Check them for what? would be the question I would be asking.

The trouble these days is that things are SO complicated itís a nightmare trying to track down whatís wrong because everything interacts with everything else UNTIL some random thing interferes.

I appreciate thatís not a lot of help in your current situation. I suspect your only realistic option is to bite the bullet, find a Fiat dealership or transmission specialist with the equipment, and more importantly the knowledge, to accurately diagnose your issue and then rectify it Of course thatís not going to be cheap is it? The ďacceptedĒ routine these days seems to be keep replacing things until the problem is fixed, which considering everything is computer controlled hardly instils confidence in the manufacturers actually understanding what they have manufactured and sold.

I am afraid the only thing I can offer is my heartfelt good wishes and hopes that you get it all sorted soon.
