Question about Jaguar XJ8
My car started having an intermitant fault where the abs light came on & also written warning on instrument panel stating No ASC & also Traction control not working. This was apparent in the handling whilst driving. This seems to be constantly this way now. Is there a simple reason for this (ABS sensor or something?) and is it something that I can fix myself? Any info would be greatly appreciated. The car isn't the same. I love her too much & want her back how she used to & should be. Thanks Shaun
Sounds like a abs sensor has gone down or a common problem is the link leads on the front going open circuit it would be helpfull if you get someone to get the fault codes from the abs module, you can check the link leads and the sensors using a ohmmeter i think the sensor resistance should be about 1100 ohms.

SOURCE: mk1 A4 ABS warning light
I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.

Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike

Known as the Three Amigos, it can suggest several things.
1) Faulty ABS Sensor
2) Faulty Shuttlevalve switch/sensor
3) Wheel bearing faulty.
