ABS light

hey all, got a puncture this evening on the way to work. nipped out at break and put the old spacesaver on. why oh why do they supply cars with them!!!! on the way back from work after about a mile the ABS warning light came on. now this hasn't come on before so i am hoping it has something to do with the space saver. after i got back to the house i turned the car off then turned it back on again- no ABS light!!! anyone any ideas??

cheers al

Re: ABS light

It`s probably down to the space saver being a different size tyre and so spinning at a different speed to the rest..................the ABS will pick this up and put the warning light on

Re: ABS light

Yes, a similar thing happened to me when the rear brakes froze on, different wheel speeds make the ABS think somethings wrong, but it corrects itself when everything goes back to normal.
