2000 Buick Century. Consumer states problems with ABS control module braking system the consumer stated a recall was issued for the 1999 model for the exact problem. On October 23,2007, the ABS light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to a local mechanic and a trouble code of C1218 appeared.

The ABS sensor light stays on. Consumer is concerned that the ABS will fail. The dealer states the sensor needs a new module. The ABS sensor light was intermittent. The mechanic found a bad ground wire which was repaired. There was a pulsation when the brakes were applied and the front rotors were out of round.

ABS problems: When making an emergency stop at 15 mph brake pedal went down but the vehicle just didn't stop, causing vehicle to crash into back of a work truck. It had just started drizzling when this happened. This caused $1,202 dollars worth of damage. Vehicle was taken to the dealership. Dealer was not able to determine what caused this problem.
