    My ABS light has been randomly coming on and off for a few days, sometimes ABS will kick in at around 5mph and judder and vibrate through the pedal. It once did this when braking from 40mph which badly affected braking performance, I had to release pedal and reapply the brake for it to function properly.

    I had a quick peek today and found this.... Surely that's not right? Shouldn't there be a 2 pin plug going into the female plug and not just wires (which are split).

    no you can repin a new plug
    but looks like the wires are broke so you will need repair wires aswell or that part of the loom if they sell it

    Thanks for reply. What a PITA. Maybe there is enough slack wire to cut them where they've broken and put the plug on there? Can anybody get me a part number for the plug I need (male) please?

    Thanks
    Sam
