Vw golf mk4 abs warning light on


If your ABS runs thru clean upon initial starting of the car and only turns on when the car has been put into motion,
You have a vibration occuring near the wheel speed sensors that is tripping the ABS system up.
Is there any howling noise while driving down the road ( like the howl the tires on a truck would make , but more subdued), and it goes away when you are driving down the road and turn one way or the other?

If the fans come on then the signal sent is 'HOT' which means the injectors run lean reducing the available power
