    Coupe turbo problems (the snow has killed it)

    So heres how my mornings gone, came out of work after my 12 hour night shift to find my coupe windows were frozen solid so i couldnt open the doors, after half an hour spraying the door with de-icer and some less than gentle persuation i got in. After i started the car and pulled away the abs and traction control lights have came on and stayed on all the way home, car seems to run fine havent been able to try properly due to the bad weather mind but was just wondering what it could be? been having some idling probelms lately that seem to point to the afm, could that cause these lights? any ideas are always much appreciated.

    The ABS sensors can get wet and then freeze up which will throw the lights on that you mention.

    Try a light coat of vaseline on the door rubbers/seals and this may help prevent the doors becoming quite as stuck again in the next freeze
