a while ago now my abs light came on fora day or so then just went away......same thing has happend today however so far its not gone out

looking back i have now realised that on both occasions i had the car up on a jack and today also had the wheels off

could this be the cause?
or should i worry (get the wallet out) yet again? :confused:

The most common faults are speed sensors unplugged and dirty connections on the ECU. Under the rear seats are the 2 connectors for the rear speed sensors, unplug clean and refit. Under the bonnet by the front struts are the front connectors, again unplug clean and refit Pull the pin from the main wiring loom plug which plugs into the abs pump (also contains the ECU) 9 times from ten a squirt of wd40 onto the pump terminals and refit the plug will cure it.

Any more than that will unfortunately result in a trip to the indy/ dealer, as a ODB reader / PC is required to communicate with the abs ECU. If the fault is cured then a 100 yard drive will put the light out ;)

When the light is on, the ABS system is off and you will lock up the tyres if you brake too hard..
