Hi..there apologies for the delay...do you still require any help with this?
If so what faults codes did they say exactly was stored or what sensor even?
Ok..firstly it has to be sure thatthe correct tyres/pressures are on the front..considering the abs system which those system in regards ***** ***** lights run through by mointioring via the speed sensors on all wheels..any differance in rotaional speed picked up against the back axle might throw that off and bring those lights on..which "could" be the reason for them picking up on both front sensors at the same time maybe..which is indeed quite unusual to be honest unless there a fault in the abs control unit...so as precaution certainly ensure the tyres are correct and match all round aswell as pressures..have they tried clearing the codes and then retest..the check engine light could well be another fault altogether
Hi..sorry for the delay..
In a sense its fine to drive as it stands..but not for any grreat distance to be honest..no suspension issues wouldnt likely cause that..id say it either more a possible engine management related fault/abs control module or steering angle sensor..but like i say its hard to say for sure without proper diagnoses/fault codes....but yes certainly check the tyres out ensure they are the same size all round.looking at the tyres size on the side wall and ensure the pressures are correct all round best done on cold tyres..so if you have one of these small electric tyre inflaters with a guage - that work off your 12v cig lighter socket then you can check them..
Lighting system? cant be... the codes you have givin are related to the ECM / Glow plug ,heater circuit malfunction...
C1201 - malfunction in the engine control system is detected - and thus the operations of VSC and TRC are prohibited hence those warnings..to me that sounds like a communication fail possible in the wiring harness or unfortunatly the ecm itself is at fault.not cheap to repair!,HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (ECM - SKID CONTROL ECU) .they would have to check both areas the harness for issues..if the later ecm is at fault then there places online ,ecu/ecm repairs..bba reman and such like who maybe able to repair it or test it..but need to be sent off..
P0380 -Is a Glowplugs fault , heater circuit a malfunction. either the plugs themselves/wiring to control relay...they need to test the glowplugs in turn to see if one of them are faulty..
I feel from what your saying in regards ***** ***** to take all 4 wheels off to investigate doesnt sound like they are able to fully deal with the problem..they have the codes there but they are looking in all the wrong places..maybe might be time to seek someone else with a better understanding to deal with the problem..
Best to actually visit or enquire with the site - depending on the nature of the issue if the ecm is at fault can vary widely on price..whether it be repaired or other wise... http://www.ecutesting.com/ecu_testing__exchange___repair.html ....but as it stands it would seem you would require a better tech to trace the harness/main connectors on these harnesses for corrosion to the ecm or equipment - diagnostic tech to actually get any further forward..the dealer would likely be a last resort id say but it might well be your only avenue in regards ***** ***** like surfacing like you have..but the costing will likely be that somewhat higher...... Doing a bit of digging on that C code -- i note you mention the pads are indeed low..but on the odd occasion this could flag up this code ."so bear that in mind" due to the caliper pistons having to increase there travel due to the pads being worn,this in turn causing the brake fluid level to drop and thus could be brake fluid level warning switch sends the approp riate signal to the skid control ECU..how worn they are yours? if nearing the metal backing then it could well be time for them to be replaced..
