advice needed re:ABS / ESP intermittent warning lights
advice please guys... from reading the forum i've found it's a regular problem.
tonight my ABS and ESP amber caution lights illuminated and remained on. i got home, had a read of the manual and forum etc and without jacking up the car and removing the wheels, i went to check the car for obvious leaks, damaged wires. i couldn't find anything obvious.
i started the car up and found the ESP light had gone off. i then went for a short drive and the ABS went off too.
i thought everything was good again, then they re-appeared for some minutes, then went off again.
11 days ago i had to replace the rear pads, so i'm wondering if i've disturbed a sensor or not?..if i had, i would have thought i'd seen problems before now?
what do you think as a first step?.. clean sensors/sensor plugs?..vagcom? (which i don't have so it'll cost me ££'s)...or is it a sign of something more serious? (ABS module).
i'm not sure what step to take next, so any help would be appreciated...thanks
