    ABS Discovery

    My ABS light has been randomly coming on and off for a few days, sometimes ABS will kick in at around 5mph and judder and vibrate through the pedal. It once did this when braking from 40mph which badly affected braking performance, I had to release pedal and reapply the brake for it to function properly.

    I had a quick peek today and found this.... Surely that's not right? Shouldn't there be a 2 pin plug going into the female plug and not just wires (which are split).

    Thanks.. Would the plug need to be soldered on, there is spade type connectors on the end of the wires at the moment :/

    Thanks for reply. What a PITA. Maybe there is enough slack wire to cut them where they've broken and put the plug on there? Can anybody get me a part number for the plug I need (male) please?

    Thanks
    Sam
