    I have the infamous three lights on my dash - traction control, abs, and yellow handbrake light. my brother has the INPA and all the other coding software but the car doesnt connect with any of it. I replaced the battery which now has a healthy reading of 12.5v and bought a android bluetooth scanner and downloaded the torque app for my phone - this will connect to the car as far as showing revs, coolant temp, throttle position etc but doesnt not show me any fault codes. ALL fuses are fine, even swapped some over for new ones just in case but this didnt help. The car also doesnt have the round connector in the bay, just the one under the dash

    I am at a complete loss, ive had the car for 3 weeks nearly and the lights have been on since day5. as ridiculous as it sounds i feel like smashing the car up with a wheelie bin. Any help is greatly appreciated

    thanks

    Wheel speed/abs sensor has had it, take it to a garage, they will diagnose it and replace

    ive done everything by the book.. ALL fuses checked, tried it with ignition on and with engine started, with door open and door shut, thrown salt over my shoulder, used different laptops and different cables, even got chris who supplies the software to do a remote session with the car and he couldnt get it to work.
