    Abs Brake problem no not usual hub thingy

    Hi

    Im at the end of the line here i really dont know what to do, the unleaded thats in the car is soon going to be used to set fire to the car im that p*ssed off with it please help me someone
    its a Astra 2.2 Sri and well its had what i thought was a common fault, dodgy speedo, abs,tc lights on, and stalling so i look on here and make my mind up its a hub, anyway take it to vauxhall (like a fool) and they tell me "oh needs a osf abs wiring loom, £7.95, i think great, drive out of the forecourt lights come back on, take it straight back, oh needs a nsf abs wiring loom" we'll order one in, ok i think not too bad another £7.95 and it seems ok anyway, strange thing about this fault is (this is gonna sound really stupid) if its really hot or really cold the abs/tc lights come on and it drives like a bag o' shi*e

    christ i will be here all night i will try and cut it short!

    2 X ABS WIRING LOOM N/S & O/S FRONT
    1 X HUB (FRONT N/S)
    1 X ABS CONTROL UNIT

    and still the same fault! but only when its really cold or hot????????

    sorry about the really long post but im desperate here

    thanks for the reply, i did try cleaning the sensors in the past, but that didnt work, i checked the connections and i have been told that the only wheel sensor that it needed was the nsf which i replaced by vx when i say it drives badly, its like when pulling to traffic lights it stalls? and seems to hesitate and not pull like it normally does other thing thats really funny about it is when its really cold or hot it happens???????? any other time its fine???? keep any suggestions coming tho thanks!

    cant really see how a problem with the abs system would make the car stall

    Possibly too obvious, but you haven't per chance got different sized wheels front and rear have you? This could cause the TC to do strange things like cut power.

    well this gets better! thanks for all your help, it does have same wheels and tyres all round, as for it stalling, im guessing its some kind of function of the traction control cutting throttle? but not sure its been to vauxhall and surprise surprise they are scratching their heads about it? they phoned up technical help and they quoted the fault codes that are on the car and they must have cross referenced it and found 1 yes, one other car with the same problem a left handed astra from belgium! and get this to fix it they changed the coil pack?


    the faults are

    engine torque request malfunction
    and the other code is for the front passenger side abs sensor.... already replaced????????? im really at a loss to understand how a coil pack can affect the speedo?


    cheers for all help tho, im off now to vx again to have the coilpack changed


    cant see it making much difference mind ?????
