    Sounds like your ABS wheel sensor is damaged and not picking up the signal from hub ring, but I would have thaught the ABS light would come on unless that is faulty too, try taking the wheel off and giving the sensor and pick up ring on the hub a clean, good luck fella.

    thanks for the reply ive tried that lol but going to buy a new sensor tomorrow also forgot to say since changing the tie rod the steering wheel is well out its nealy a quarter of a turn out would that make a difference o and i pulled the fuse on the abs system the abs light stays on and it chimes with a warning simbal apprers on the lcd so the warning is working so im starting to get very confused
