Nct............."failed"



They didn't noticed the ABS light wasn't coming on with the ignition, and that was the biggest worry for me...

Failed on:
1 tyre
brake pipe fouled
handbrake needs adjusting.

I thought I might get away with the ABS light thing, when the tester came out and asked me where the engine was, and how to get at it.. And, YES, he did come back again to ask me where the battery is located..

At least you know what to sort out now. Just be warned during the retest they can fail you for the ABS light not working.

You drove to Dublin for a NCT test?
What was wrong with the place in Carlow?

Pat. I was in Dub in the morning, went to see Gerry. He was meant to have a look, but was pushed for time.
Just put it into CW last night..

Can't see how they'd fail ABS light second time round. They won't be looking for it, as it wasn't on the fail sheet..?
