Hi there thanks

ok the esp and engine management light are connected due to the torque v demand calculation however the abs light shouldn’t come on when limp home mode is intiated

commonky it’s an abs sensor issue on the ranger but firstly we need to retrieve the fault codes from the pcm and abs module before going any further as it’s imperative to correctly diagnosing the issue

I can assist you going forward with this once we have the relavent codes

kindest regards ***** *****
