Brake/Traction warning lights issue.

Wasn't planning on doing it, Mike, just referencing the earlier post by Monkeydonkeyratmagic. MoT due in a couple of weeks, so it needs fixing pronto.

I'd be round to your place poste haste if you weren't almost 200 miles away.

Pop up, jump on train to Manchester/Liverpool, see some sights and come back to a fixed car..

While a fixed car sounds wonderful I'm confused by the idea that there's interesting things to do in Manchester or Liverpool... :oops: :rofl:

Normally if you get the tyre pressure warning light on it relates to a wheel speed sensor so am a bit surprised at the ABS unit fault. Not sure why the tyre pressure warning system wouldn’t work with an ABS fault.
That's the exact combination I had. The tyre pressure one was confusing.

Mine was caused by doing track rods. Recalibrating the steering angle sensor at your suggestion finally cleared all my lights

I also had this combination of warning lights. It turned out to be the front left speed sensor, which took about 30 minutes to replace. All the warning lights then cleared after a short test drive.
3.0i E85 Sterling Grey, 108's, xenons, professional hi-fi with dsp & nav, power mirrors. Now with DLV backbox & roof motor relocation, M3 Sports Seats with heat & power, cruise and hope to add other mods in near future...... :)

Thanks all. Will take it somewhere to get the codes read and take it from there.

If all else fails, the Mrs and I have promised ourselves a few days away in the z sometime soon. Maybe we'll plan it to drive past Mike - I could do with the keys sorting out as well!
