    ABS coming in at low speeds...

    Hi all,

    I've got the common 'ABS coming in at low speeds as i'm about to stop'

    VCDS hasn't picked up any DTC's as in no sensor failure.

    But is there a way VCDS can detect which sensor it is that is activating the ABS?

    Doing front suspension next week, so could change the reluctor rings then if its the front ones that are causing the problems.

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Usually its a broken ring, or a not-quite-fitted-properly ABS sensor.

    Ive seen a few rear rings break, but no fronts yet.
