    Jim Dickson tyres can do this (may charge you though)
    They had to do this after replacing some parts on my car for me

    However how long has it been on for?
    It should reset after 20 or so miles

    If the lights have been on for some time then clearly a fault has occured and needs to be investigated, then repaired

    The usual causes are driving over variable road surfaces (such as ice), disconnecting the hub carriers (such as for front shock absorber replacement), and so on

    Could be the plug on the abs module try cleaning it. Or its faulty. But be careful when removing the plug you can easily break the wires.

    If the abs/tc light is on permanently then there is a fault buddy and no amount of resetting will put it off.

    Chances are it'll be a dodgy connection at the wheel. If you take the wheel off you'll see that attached to the chassis leg is a round connector. The pins in there are prone to corrosion so that's a place to start. After that i'd be looking at getting the codes read as you can't really guess which wheel the fault is coming from or it may even be a faulty abs unit but this is rare.

    If the fault is fixed then the light should go off in a matter of metres not miles
