    I had exactly this problem after a flat battery. The cure was a long run (circa 60 miles). I tried to clean the wheel sensors but they were well and truly stuck and I didn't want to risk shearing them off. My theory was they were ok when I parked up, why should they become dirty being parked in the garage?

    I also had the added complication of the brake fluid warning light as well even though there was plenty of fluid in the reservoir.

    Give it a good run Pete and see how it goes.

    Cheers Dave

    I had this same problem, I took to my indie mechanic who attached the code reader. It turned out to be a faulty ABS sensor on one wheel and thankfully not the ABS pump.

    Important to note that you may not have ABS or DSC at the moment, until its fixed.
