    TC & ABS warning but no pedal test results??

    I have a zlet coupe turbo and the TC & abs light came on while driving home tonight, it stayed on for the whole journey but the car drove fine and was boosting ok etc, I have done the pedal test but the spanner light was just flashing, quite fast with no breaks/pauses!

    Anyone had this before, or knows what the problems could be?

    I had this a couple of times on my old car and its usually the sensor in the hubs that have gone or are going which requires a whole new hub. However I have found my current car does this once in a while but when the car is switched of and restarted the lights stay off, and I think the cause for this is when one wheel (on mine passenger side) spins while the other as perfect traction.

    mine does this sometimes, i turn the engine on, and the lights stay on, but if i turn the engine off and on again then they stay off! very strange, i'm gonne try and find the cause quick because i'm into my last month of warrenty with the car!

    mine happens usually if im on country roads and I have to move close to the verge to let vehicles coming towards you pass and the passenger wheel gets covered in mud and then when I go to accelerate the wheel spins up abit

    mines from stationary, is it a big job to replace the hub, and more importantly is it expensive?

    I've only done front hubs and they are usually £70-90 iirc, its not a major job in itself its quite simple but you can suffer from seized bolts that can be an arse to get out. I would think a garage would probably charge 2-3 hours for the job tho

    If its under warranty get them to diagnose it and fix it, cos as said its not a hard job just a pain in the arse.
