HELP!!!! Abs & traction control light staying on - STILL!!!
I am new to this so please stay with me!
I have just purchased a 53 plate 156 sportswagon (1.9 JTD). When driving the car back I noticed that the ABS and Traction Control light was on and I couldn't switch them off. I called the garage and they advised this is a common issue with this car but it will reset itself after a few rides (I did a google surch and there were posts to back this up). As I got home the battery light came on and the steering got heavy. I discoved one of the belts came off and was told by the roadside assistance this is what caused the ABS & Traction Control to stay on, and when the belt was back on the lights went out.
The following day I started the car and the lights were out, but after a short trip they were back on. This happened again today so I took it to Kwik Fit to do a diognostics but the machine was not picking up the breaking system. The guy (a friend) said it was picking up the diesel but not the breaking system. I do have a break light out but I dont think it's that, could anyone help with this as my wife is kicking me at the moment for buying her a faulty car!!
Thank you in advance.
