Well, my problem is becoming a right mysterious saga!!
I haven't had an opportunity to go any further, as the car has been in use.
However, when I started it yesterday the taco kept going!
In addition, contrary to me believing that the engine had previously been running normally, it must have been running in 'limp mode' as this time it was off 'like a rocket'. Can only assume that the faster 'cold' tick-over & subsequent easy drive away misled me. Thought 'limp mode' would have been more evident.
So cleared the fault codes & seemed ok, though haven't had a long run since.
I must add that after start-up the ABS light still pops on & then off again, as before. But, is it correct that the basic hand-held fault code reader doesn't pick up faults on the ABS system?
Also, with regard to the rpm reading on the code reader 'live data', is it true that it can be picked up from the CAM sensor? Mine has two.
Well, that's the situation at the moment, but, any explanation please?
What could have caused the problem TEMPORARILY, so that I can check it out to hopefully avoid it reoccurring??
