    ABs & TC Light strangeness

    Today my tc and abs light came on quite randomly while stopped at a set of lights - got to work turned engine off then back on again and it had cleared, drove home from work at lunch no problems, on way back at a different set of lights the abs and tc light came on again. Got to work, cleared fine.

    Started up at work and the lights where on, also I could not turn on air con, air recirc or heated screen - nor was my blower working - turned engine off and back on again, fine again.

    Just plugged the old laptop in and no stored error codes - I know afm comes with tc and eml but ive not had that combination yet, any suggestions?

    I had this happen only once. Thought a fuse had gone, checked all the fuses, all were ok, restarted the engine and everything worked. No problems since. I was having coolant issues at the time this happened (pipe came off the morning earlier), not sure if it was related to this...

    also if you have an after market dump valve that can cause the TC/ABS fault light to come one.

    More to the point is the fact that it messes with the fans/ac etc. How can an AFM cause that?

    Q. "Why did my wing mirror fall off?"
    A. "Its your AFM mate." (Wouldn't surprise me TBH). lol
