Two problems, can anyone shed any light please?
I have a 1.9tdi 130 sport, the brake pad warning light came on (fronts only as rears dont have the sensors) so replaced the pads. As youd expect the warning light on the DIS went off, after a jurney of 15 or so miles the light came back on. After whipping the wheels off again the pads are fine anf the sensors are conected.
So I disconected both and reconected, still the same warning light. Now I have the sensor disconected (open circuit) this should turn the light off as the system is open circuit, the lamp should only come on when the circuit is closed, ie, the pad wears and the contacts touch the disc. I have the lamp on no matter what I do????
Secondly, I have a rattle, it has got progressivley worse over the last few months, I have had the front wheels off, checked all bushes everything I can think of. Today I took the car to Kwik fit (would never normally) they put the car on the shaker pad and found nothing.
The rattle occurs when impacting potholes ect. It's not suspention related and going over bumps such as speed bumps and the susspention in either in compression or extention, no noise. It's a metalic noise and sounds as if something is realy loose. Please someone shed some light on this it's doing my head in.
