    Angry abs warning light.

    Hi,my abs warning light has come on while driving today,when i turned engine off and back on abs warning light stays on and speedo needle jumps up and down with a beeping noise.
    i was wondering if anybody has tips on what to check for quickly before i put car into garage next week,my car is a astra sportshatch 1.6 sxi on a 58 plate and has only done 10000 miles,any help would be welcome.

    either a faulty front near side hub (check the wiring connector first tho - unplug, clean with wd40 and refit)

    OR

    your battery is starting to die

    Obviously may be a simple earthing or wiring fault similar to the above but id still think its one of the above

    Speedo takes its drive from NSF ABS electrical plug so for both to be causing a fault leads me to suspect its this

    failing that, take it back to the dealer as its obviously still under warranty

    get them to hook the diagnostics machine (tech2) up to it and take it from there
