    Quite common when a cars been on rollers of any kind, more common on rolling roads, I've not heard of it happening on a brake tester before.

    Basically the system detects the front wheels rotating and not the rear and disables the system automatically as a safety precaution. It should reset after a couple of miles driving, if it doesn't then try pulling the battery off for half hour or so. If it's still on after that, then the garage has stuffed a sensor or something doing their inspection.

    What Ian said, the ABS system gets confused because the front(or Rears) are turning but the rears are not, and throws a wobbly.

    Sorted now I think...
    Jacked car up to check connection on inner wing.
    Noticed a blue wire broken going into the connector ( car loom side, not sensor side ).
    Soldered it up quickly for now, will add a little extra wire in when I wip wheel off to change the drop link...
