Intermittent ABS/DSC Fault

Post by dhobbs » Tue Nov 07, 2017 8:00 pm

I had DSC, ABS and handbrake all in yellow and it was the pump. Had the fault codes as mentioned above.
I had mine repaired at Munich Legends in Sussex. Was easy for me to leave the car with them whilst I was away.

Motor in boot now! Bilstein b12 kit now fitted.

Codes are the surefire way but typically:

1) DSC + ABS = ABS pump.
2) DSC + handbrake (in yellow) = pressure sensor
3) DSC + ABS + handbrake (in red) = wheel speed sensor.
4) DSC + ABS + handbrake (in yellow) + tyre pressure = wheel speed sensor.
5) DSC + ABS + handbrake (in yellow) = steering angle sensor fault / ABS pump.
6) DSC permanently on = steering angle sensor calibration issue / yaw sensor / lat accel sensor.

There are other combinations of faulty sensors which can cause similar lights but the above are the common ones.
Thanks for the info - Very useful - Cheers!
