Hi there - Thank you.. Ok with this issue - have you had any tests done / made any physical checks or anything at all?
Plus - has anything been done at the car, any work or anything , prior to the ABS light coming on ?
i got the car a week ago and the abs light was on and the garage said they had sorted it so for a week the abs light was offf then on monday when i went to work the abs was on but wen i came home it wasnt then today it didnt come on till i was on my way back home
Ok I understand.. Such issues can be caused by simple poor connections to the road wheel sensors... or, dirt in the gap between the sensor end and the reluctor / pick up rings... Also, if you have a worn wheel bearing that can cause it... as that causes an erratic gap...causing the light to come on.. Or of course, a faulty sensor....
What needs to be done really is have a plug in diagnostic test done - that is avery quick way to ID which sensor / circuit is playing up and putting the light on - then a visual check is made in that area to determine the cause - as above.
Too - the control module for that system - the ABS Ecu, will have logged fault codes - which will show where the fault is - so a fault code test can be done as above as another way to ID the cause..
As you have only just bought the car, this diagnostic / and repair work should be done FOC for you.
Is that all ok for you , or can I help you anymore at all while we are in Live Chat?
thankyou for that advice ill get my son in law to bring his machine over so then we will no the fault
