Hi All my zed seems to have a problem from, some of the dashboard warning lights come from time to time. Is there a device out there that I can use to find out the cause as to why these lights are coming on, and if need be to reset them. Thanks very much

The handbrake light is red, ABS light is amber, DSC light is amber, runflat indicator is amber . I have checked all the tyre pressures both the rear tyre pressures were a little low so I inflated them, the front ones were ok. I have gone through the rest process for inflating the tyres a number of times. Anyone got any ideas.

You had your steering wheel off recently or had new front suspension parts or tracking?

No nothing like that has been done. I had a new starter motor fitted about a year ago other than that no work has been done on the car for years.

Check your battery. I had all sorts of lights flashing on and off. Turned out battery was on its way out.

That's more than likely a wheel speed sensor. You need to read codes to find out which one if it's not obvious from a visual inspection.

This guide will show you everything you need to know...

I have had it checked out by a friend using adelphi software. It says "right rear wheel speed sensor; accident recognition" is this much of a job to change this sensor
