Exclamation Warning lights!

Hi all,

I am a new Audi forum user and hope you guys can help. I bought my 4.2l one month ago and it's broken already! Once I have been driving for about 20-30 miles, the ABS/traction control and hand break lights all come on. I have changed the ABS sensor and ABS wiring loom, but the lights still come on. Can anyone shed any light on this.....?.sorry for the pun!

Thanks

Andy

Which ABS sensor did you change? There are more than one that could be causing this issue.

Hi,
I changed the near side sensor, which I was told was where the speed/ABS would pick up signal from. This sensor picks signal from the rotor at the end of the cv joint, but don't think it is a damaged rotor, as it only happens when the car has been running for a while.
Cheers.
