    ABS light on

    Hi.

    I have the warning light saying there is a problem with my ABS. I have checked my fluid level and this is ok.

    Would anyone have an idea on what to check next?

    cheers

    When i had this warning i thought it was going to be the ABS control module, but it ended up being the steering angle sensor (260 part to replace and 30 mins to fit).

    Basically i needed to go to a garage with a VAG reader to let me know what fault codes had been recorded. Good luck

    Need a vag-com to plug in mate, that'll tel you firstly if you can access the ABS Control module (if not it will need remanufacuring at approx 100) if you can get it it'll throw up some fault codes to check, usually a wheel speed sensor or something.

    Oh and don't go doing any heavy braking as you won't have ABS if the light is on, it's a visual alert to tell you something is worng and so the ABS cannot function properly.
