    Hello everyone, this is my first post, and i'm really hoping someone can give me some help. Yesterday when i started my car to drive to work the ASC warning light came on, and wont go off even if i press the switch for it. A friend who has an AUTOLOGIC diagnostic machine plugged it in to my car and at first it showed a fault with the Throttle Actuator. We tried to erase the code but the light stayed on, and it now reads fault code 146, unknown code. I've looked through some other posts on the forum for people with similar problems, and i saw that sometimes its just a bad connection with the lead that goes into the actuator, so i took the lead out, cleaned the terminals, clicked it back in securely but unfortunately the light remains on. Can someone shed some light on this fault code 146? I'd really appeciate your advice on this guys, thanks!

    Do you have traction control?

    It does have traction control, but it's not working since the light came on.

    Then it will be a wheel speed sensor problem. It is connected to the throttle actuator for traction control

    Thanks for that Neal, i'll explore that further when i get a chance. I've had some wheel bearing noise get progressively worse over the last 6 weeks or so, i wonder if this could be related somehow, or probably just a coincidence.
