    This is strange one - the car is in good health, but hadn't moved for 3 days. After the first really cold night of winter, a neighbour alerted me that the lights were on.

    Can anyone help. Both the ABS and ASC lights remain lit on the dash. Connected INPA up and had the errors as shown on this photo: I cleared the error codes and drove the car and instantly the lights on dash returned meaning I have a genuine fault. Is this likely to be the ABS/ASC pump and motor...
