    problems again

    hi all, sorry if this is in the wrong section. i just wondered if any of u guys could shed any light....
    after spending 1200 notes on sorting the various problems out with vauxhall, today the traction control and the abs light have come on and are staying on. plus if i press the pedal hard, it judders like hell. its booked in on monday for diagnostics but if its gonna cost me an arm and a leg im gonna get shut cos im fed up now!
    any thoughts would be much appreciated. cheers

    Am taking a guess that its the brake pedal that judders? if so could be warped discs.
