    Astra coupe 1.8 g abs & tc lights on?

    Hi I have an intermittent problem with abs and tc lights staying on.I often turn ignition on and off a couple of times and the lights go off only to re light after a short while, any suggestions? sometimes the speedo will also move whist car is stationary when lights are on.Both abs and tc seem to be working.

    Welcome Chris

    With the 2 lights on together it's likely to be a faulty ABS sensor

    Dodgy ABS sensor, bad news is it's built into the hub assembly & not a seperate item.

    Have it checked on a Tech2 (or similar code reader). This should tell you which sensor is suspect.
    My moneys is on front passenger sensor.

    It is most likely an sensor fualt as both TC and ABS systems are linked in one unit. Best to get it scaned to find out which sensor it is and replace it. Then job done.
