Abs / traction control fault


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon

So for 6 months my traction control light has been on my dash. With the mot coming up i decided to get new sensors. After fitting them the Abs light has come on and won't disappear.

I put the old sensors back in and the lights still stay on (abs and traction control light). 

Any ideas at what it might be, or how to clear the lights... 

I've used my DTC to clear codes and there isn't any codes remaining.

Forgot to mention, Its ford focus MK2 tdci

I am wondering if you are using a cheap generic fault code reader that does not read all modules on a Ford (eg. it reads the engine fault codes but not abs fault codes). Or the fault code reader is good but the software isn't good enough.

Have you taken it for a drive? Disconnect battery maybe? (Should clear any fault codes until they come back) Are you sure the sensors are seated correctly and the plug connections aren't corroded? 

Did you have the codes read, did it point to a specific wheel?
