When cold, remove plug of the temperature sensor usually found at the top of the radiator (but may be on thermostat area)
Check sensor with a meter - should be normally open (non conducting)
If faulty, fit a replacement. (undo cap of coolant system, then retighten, undo and replace sensor quickly to avoid too much coolant loss, then top up system.) You can drain the system, but sometimes causes airlocks and more problems.

ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been an overvoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.
If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle.

I had the brake light switch replaced by a local dealer. Cost was $140 and it fixed the problem. Have driven the car for two weeks since and no lights and all systems normal.

The brakes will feel fine until u need the ABS, when the light is on the ABS is disabled. You need to have the ABS system tested for trouble codes, if the light is on there will be a code or codes.

The problem is in the loom in the steering wheel, it requires removal of the airbag and a new wheel loom to be fitted. The loom costs about £15.00 I think.
