    Do you have any other warning lights? ABS maybe?

    Yes i do have abs light, also the charge light and fault light (car/spanner light) would come on intermittently at low revs and the speedo would stop working and then start again but now i have no charge or faul lights comming on but speedo will not work and abs light is on permanantly

    Could anyone explain this in a bit more detail please? Took my coupe for a drive this morning and all the above mentioned lights came on as well as speedo not working. Starting to get hacked off with this car cause I spend more time fixing it than driving it

    Sorry mods, just realised this is the Mk5 section

    Vauxhall use the nearside hub's ABS signal to measure the speed of the car

    Thanks for the reply Lee. Is that exclusive to Mk5's or does the Mk4 coupe use the same system?
