    same thing with my wifes vt,came from no where all a sudden but the air bag warning light is always on but the engine light will come on but as soon as i take my foot off the accelerator it goes away then comes back on every few minutes.

    Default Dash warning lights

    I have a 2001 vx clubby and I have been having a similar problem, the engine, abs, trac off, airbag and oil lights stay on when i turn on the ignition and some times they come on after I have been driving for awhile. When the lights stay on the climate control doesn't work, the fuel guage shows full, the temp guage shows cold, the power light doesn't work and the gear change lights on dash dont move among other lights. Some days they switch on and off at random and some days they dont come on at all. Does anyone have a soloution for me.

    Hi guys sorry to hash up an old thread but I have just joined and was going to ask about the exact problem posted here, when I did a search and found this thread. Can anyone tell me what an abs module cost to fix? Will I need a new one and will I have to get a mechanic to install it??

    The problem with my wifes car is the engine, abs, traction control, and air bag warning lights come on all together at times and for the first time yesterday a sound came on along with all the lights. Any help with my questions greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks

    There are always plenty of modules on ebay. It is very easy to fit yourself, only the electrical part needs to be replaced, not the whole unit with all the pipes connected to it.
    Here is a sample of what's on ebay:VT, VX, V6 ABS MODULE W/TRAC CONTRL C/O REPAIR SERVICE - eBay, Other, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 08-May-10 10:14:38 AEST)

    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
