    Hey guys, i got a strange problem with the abs, my abs light decided to come on 2 weeks ago, now yesterday i decided to put my car through a car wash and for some strange reason the light went out, it stayed like this for about 3 hours, then the abs light came on again, then went off and the abs kicked in while i was braking very slowly. Just wondering whats causing the problem and is it easy to fix? as i got my mot coming up soon, thanks

    Sounds like a failing sensor. Best thing to do, is get the codes read to find out which one(s) causing the problem.

    Definitely sounds like a sensor problem to me as well especially as the warning light went out after they got soaked in the car wash
