    Hi All,

    I am slowly getting my avant back on the road, while driving sometimes the abs and a triangle warning light come on together. When I restart the car it turns off, any idea what this could be?

    There is a sticky at the top of this forum with LOTS of useful information in it! You would find the link in there, and loads more besides.

    Oddly it's not working tonight..... email me at quattrojames@gmail.com and I'll send it to you.

    Hi All

    I replaced the brake pedal switch, the thrust sensor, abs wheel sensor and had the ecu module rebuilt. Still fault light not going out, any ideas?

    Please tell me you've it scanned for faults before you replaced any of the parts above. If not you've wasted a lot of money and got absolutely nowhere.

    It could be any number of faults that throw up those dash lights and a scan would have directed you to the part that's causing the problem
