    Does anyone know where the speed sensors are that control the ESP and ABS? My warning lights keep coming on

    Have you ever taken the discs off your car?

    The actual sensors are behind the slotted disc on the very front of the hub very easy to see if the brake disc is off the car, they are also in a position that gets caked in brake dust and **** so might be worth giving them a good clean.

    it could also be the lateral sensors in the car, my esp/abs lights kept coming on and it ended up being the sensor in the steering column, not cheap either, £90 + fitting :(
