Intermittent ABS warning

Post by Flying Dutchman » Wed Oct 01, 2014 5:10 pm

Need some help with intermittent ABS warning. It often starts with rattling pedal when braking, (mostly after driving several kilometers) then the ABS warning lights up.
The brakes doesn't feel any different and works just as good as before. Doesnt happen everytime I'm driving..

Grateful for help solving this problem!

Suggest using the diagnostic box and then posting up the results if you do not understand.

If only ABS light goes on it sounds like electrical problem. If you break gently and you feel ABS working on the pedal anyway, clean calipers and hub. Check connections in the ABS plugs in the trunk.
