Most likely a faulty sensor Bob.

they get covered in road crud and it can get into the connectors and corrode them.

Best to start there mate take a look see

Thanks for reply polar,i took the rear drums off earlier looks like the wheel cylinders have been weeping.Pulled back the dust covers they were full of brake fluid,abs rings were clogged with dust as well.I will replace the cylinders and shoes and give the rest a good clean up,hopefully that will sort the problem.Cheers Bob

Still having problems with brakes,replaced rear shoes and cylinders pressure bled system,all warning lights still on.Brakes a bit spongy,when engine running the brake pedal slowly sinks to floor when pressed.
Thanks in advance for any help.Bob

Could anyone advise me on the bleeding sequence for this model please.I have started with rear r/h first,but there is another sequence in the manual that starts with front L/h first.
Cheers Bob
