    ABS/TC light

    After intermittent problems with the TC/ABS lights they have now come on permanently. I guess it will have to be a Vxl job but can the tech2 tell which part of the system is causing the fault.
    I thought it might be the wiring to the sensors but they seem ok .

    Finally the MOT is due the end of this month, would the TC/ABS lights being on consitute a fail in the MOT , I think I know the answer but confirmation would be great

    I got exactly the same problem mate, mine started just after I spun off a roundabout and clunked the curb with my front left wheel. My speedo also dips or just stops working altogether. Keep me posted if you get to tech 2 before I do!!!

    This threads over 3 years old now, the orgional posters probably can't even remember what any of it looks like. It was also in the wrong forum as I know the cars being talked about are MK4's
