GT warning lights on!!

Hi All,

My better half runs a diesel GT, recently the warning lights have started coming on for the VDC syetem and ASR system, they come on every time she uses it now.

Is this a main dealer fix?

Is there anything I can look at/

Any advice please?

Take it to an indie specialist. If you're lucky you might have one close. I travel about 40 miles to get to mine but its worth it. Someone with more technical knowledge on here might be able to point you in the direction of what to do yourself. Personally I let the garage deal with all things like this.

Wouldn't take it to a dealer unless you want to be ripped off considerably.

had any freezing weather your way on? this one often associated with handbrake getting stuck, causes a speed sensor difference between front and rear wheels and sends the car loopy.

you probably have a broken wire or sensor somewhere along the line if not. a trip to the diagnostic should tell you what is what!

Agreed with taking it to a decent specialist as the main dealer will charge you at least 40 just to plug it in and they still may not even give you the right information.
