Handbrake & ABS light on, no speedo! no KMS Clock!

Speedo & Kms clock has stopeed working. This happened that same time that both the ABS & handbrake light come on.

On some occasions in the morning when the car is cold, they seem to be working fine. but then the speedo suddenly drops to zero and the light come back on.

A mechanic friend of mine, reckons it could be the sensors in the wheels, and they have become clogged up with brake dust. we tried blowing them with a pressure blower, but only worked for about 5 seconds and then failed.

Could this be an electrical/computer problem?

any help or info would be appreciated

It is one of the sensors... you must get your car connected to the examiner and check which one is causing problems.

Then you have more options.
It can be clogged
Sensor can be bust
The ABS ring on the bearing can fall apart
