    my speedo dosnt read correctly, the higher the speed the more out it goes

    60mph will actually be 70 on the clocks 30 will be around 35-40

    my abs light and t/c light is on as i need to replace the hub

    where does the speedo get its signal from? ive checked opcom and the tyre size is correct

    Bear in mind it is normal for speedo to over-read, and when compared to GPS an over-read of 5% is common, and in any case speedos are designed to over-read, rather than under-read, for obvious reasons.

    my car is supposed to be on 215/50/17 & has been on 225/50 since I bought it like that , this means the speedo is out by 1 mph when compared to sat nav , when comapred to my vectra B which had the correct size tyres & was 2-3 mph out .

    mines is a fair bit out though, i do understand that speedos aren't 100% correct that's how you get your Barry boys doing 130mph in their mums panda
