Help please??

Iíve recently had these 3 lights appear which come on after a mile or so of driving. They are the flat tyre, ABS and traction control symbol. Any ideas for the cause

Evening buddy,

I'm pretty sure that all 3 would link to the abs sensor as the tyre pressure uses the abs sensor to check the wheel rotations etc.

I'd get it plugged into a vcds near you and check the fault.

Cheers

I had this when I first got my Leon when it was 5 years old. It was the rear left ABS sensor. I replaced it and it came up again a few months later. Rinse and repeat for a year and I had to replace both rear hubs as the ABS sensor ring was corroded.

With the hubs replaced, I haven't had the lights show up since.

I'm not sure about all readers but I used Carista and it told me which corner was at fault and it also let me reset it. I also have a basic, cheap VAG reader but I can't remember if it told me where the fault was, I think it did but can't say 100%.

Iíve tried a obd reader plugged in whilst in fault but doesnít even show a fault on it even though itís on the dash. Iíll have to order a Carista one then and give it a go

Carista should do it as that's what I use all the time now for mine and I managed to reset it when it came up in the past.

Thinking back, that was why I got it and ditched the generic code reader.

Ordered Carista late last night through amazon. Plugged in today and came up with right rear. Funnily enough I had a new tyre put on that wheel due to puncture just before this all started so could be loose plug if he knocked it
