    Without fault codes it's a difficult one. It's probably a abs wheel sensor but you needs to get the codes read to find out exactly.

    As the big man said, but as its an 04 plate try taking the ABS plug off, giving it a clean and pop it back on. Chances are nothing will change but its free to try. I had the same as you and cleaning the ABS plug solved it but I had other symptoms as well.

    I've just started getting this problem too. I have a vector c 1.9cdti 05 plate.

    In feb, the abs and TC lights kept coming on and eventually battery went dead. Was the alternator that had to be replaced.

    All problems were sorted. But those 2 lights are now coming on again, once in a while, mainly when manoeuvring sharply in bays, parking spots etc.

    Got the alternator and battery checked and they are still fine.


    Any suggestions? How do I check the ABS plug? I don't even know where it is? Can a novice do it?

    Thanks

    Yours falls outside the faulty ABS plug mate and turning the wheel wont affect the plug. Another possibility could be the CIM as it houses the steering angle sensors. With both CIM and ABS plug faults you might also find all your dials drop. The CIM isn't a DIY job really as it involves Tech 2 support.

    If you still want to put your mind at rest re the ABS plug then all you need to do is pull out the catch on the end of the plug and lift it up but as said odds on it wont be that.
