Hi folks,

The dashboard light for my ABS stays on when I start the engine and move off. Occasionally it doesn't do this and I think it's sorted itself, then it starts doing it again.

Could there be a loose wire or water getting into the system somewhere? Or something more significant?

Any ideas welcome, especially stuff I can check myself.

Many thanks in advance,
J

Haven't heard of water ingress, but I guess it could be a loose wire, or a faulty sensor. Or, if lucky, a dirty sensor.

I'm afraid that's about the limit of my knowledge, but taking wheels off, finding the sensors and checking their physical condition would be my starting point.

Hi - tnx for the reply I think checking the sensors is probably a good idea, esp after a mucky old winter with lots of salt and cr^p on the roads. So my next question - can anyone pinpoint the sensors for me to investigate or is this a job for a garage mechanic..?
