enter image description here

it is an intermittend fault, somtimes she'll start up and they;ll be there.

Sometimes not..

i can drive a mile or 2 and it'll be fine, then randomly come on..

ABS sensor?

The wabco unit behind the dash is dry.

They should always come on when you first start up. The middle one is a warning that the handbrake is on, you are low on brake fluid or you don't have sufficient pressure in the system. They will all stay on until you have sufficient pressure but after that, ABS goes out when you reach 5 mph and the TC one comes on if there is a TC fault or TC is working (but then it just flickers on). If they are randomly coming on, and giving you ABS fault or Traction failure on the dash, then the most likely cause is a sensor not quite fully home. The one fault where hitting things with a hammer actually does do some good......

I know Richard's hammer comment was in jest, but I found that it was better to remove the sensor and cage, de-grease the hole, and get some emery paper down the hole (wrap the paper round the cage, insert, and twist the cage), before greasing the cage and pushing the sensor into place. PO had banged one of mine and damaged the sensor tip, which then meant it cdn't self-gap, and it definitely won't if it's so tight it needs a hammer blow to move.

What does nanocom say? Wabco ecu discards the errors each turn off of the ignition, hence you get a new life each time you go for a drive

If you can get them out. My experience is that the rears may come out if you are lucky, the fronts won't without resorting to drilling them out.

I put some expandable pliers on the top - they "just" wiggle out with a twisting motion ? Maybe I was lucky, but I've had to cut several bolts off this vehicle (since it lived by the sea at one point ) but these sensors came out ok - just a whole load of dirt holding them in, the sensor is stainless, although the hub rusts a bit. I suppose it partly depends if the sensor boot is still intact

Fuel consumption is frightening on this thing!

Needs a full tune up..

Saving to get a nano and quite a few parts to freshen her up..
