    Do the pedal test to see if any fault codes have been logged.

    well ive done the pedal test and nothing has com up atall, just instant flashing which indicates theres no trace of a code so i guess maybe a plug just isnt plugged in right, or theres dirt on the abs sensor?? although isnt the triangle t.c warning light just for the t.c and esp? lol i`ll take the wheel off and have a check over the sensors maybe something will expose itself

    If an ABS sensor was malfunctioning would it not give ABS failure also..

    It would have to be a ABS sensor giving the wrong speed because if i am not mistaken all the TC is doing is measuring if the front wheels spin at the same speed and reduce throttle if the difference gets to big.

    But if the ABS unit (TC and ABS is the same unit afaik) were to receive this kind of wrong data it would surely also give some sort of error would it not ?

    interesting m8, i would have thought there would be a code if there was a real problem, im yet to check the connections as ive been assembling my step daughters new wardrobe but will do asap, however mr clutch caused this problem, so i`ll be calling them tomorow too. im happy to say though the clutch is top notch now! so next is the miltek then the remap, poss @ courtenays

    If i am not mistaken the blink codes are strictly ECU only so i dont think you will ever be able to blink out ABS/TC/Airbag/etc errors out with the accelerator brake ignition trick.
