    Red face TC & ABS lights on also my speedo's mental

    Any one had these lights come on, they were on a while ago so changed my disks and pads all round as they needed doing anyway and this cured it but now their back on. Tracation control still works and so does ABS, disconected the battery for 24 hrs no joy. Also my speedo is of it's head driving along and it sometimes acts like a rev counter the needle twitches from the speed i'm doing to 0 like this a few times then calms down for a bit could be a completely seperate issue but just after any ideas before Vaux get there hands on my £35.....cheers

    Don't know what car you drive but sounds like speedo wire on the passenger side front wheel. Tend to work loose if I remember correctly.
    TC & ABS light on was on Glens car the AFM was screwed.

    BTW this should be in tech section as thats where most of our technical bods hang out.

    Speedo is a function of the ABS system. Usually run by the left rear ABS sensor.

    If it's a problem with the car, then it's a technical question - and moved accordingly.

    Sounds like the passenger front hub is fubared - there be the speedo sensor and ABS sensor in there. Have a check of the connectors first, to make sure they are not fusted up.

    But it do sound like you need a new hub tho, try on ebay or give www.autovaux.com a call
