    bizzare......advice?

    today i have noticed something strange. when i turn my engine on, my traction control light, and abs light stay on, but when i turn the engine off and on again they go out.

    what could the cause of this be?

    it is worth pointing out that on my n/s/f brake wear wire i have twisted the ends together (long story lol) to put the brake pad warning light out on the mfd.


    help appreciated!

    You may have disturbed the connection to the ABS sensor.

    ABS and TC are done by the same ECU and sensors. My moneys on a faulty wheel sensor though
