    Vag com??? I dont know why it has done it, it was fine before i changed the discs n pads! I have heard about a simmilar prob with vauxhall vecta`s, something to do with winding the caliper piston back too fast???? Any ideas!? I`m getting desperate now!!!!:(

    Vag com is a bit of software that reads the fault codes, there is a stick on local members with vag com.

    I imagine it would be the ABS sensor, may have disconnectd cables by accident?

    Im sure i didnt disturb the ABS wires, could it be something to do with putting pattern discs on? Maybe the ABS pickup sensor is out of alignment now it has new discs??? Any more ideas!????

    While trying to replace the last brake (rear pass side) I cut my hand open and had to go to casualty. So I havnt been able to replace that disc and pads. Could that cause the ABS warning light to come on, seeing as it has 3 new lots of brakes and one old????? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:sos:
