Stumbled upon this place

Had a 02 147 2ltr lusso fer a while now,luv the car from a driving point of view,engine note,sound system,road holding etc,sure your all the same.
Had the cam belt go well under spec last month,and cost me 1500,all valves bent,recon head and all pistons re ground etc,so engine is like new.But now I am getting abs/traction faults showing up at no particular intervals,may run for a week or so without 1,then at times I drive a few miles it starts again.Am sure it just a sensor,but help with where to start looking would be appreciated.

Re: Stumbled upon this place

Welcome and sorry to hear of your woes....what mileage did the belt go? "Spec" now is 36k/3yrs

The light sounds like an ABS sensor may be on the way out as you suggest, I think this may be a dealer test only

Whereabouts in Derbyshire are you?

Re: Stumbled upon this place

Belt went at 45k which hacks me off as would of had it done next service anyway as matter of course,but reading posts on other global sites,anything from 38k up seems a too regular occurance.

Welcome to AO.

That's real bad luck about the cam belt, hope it won't put you off any.
