    Default ABS light on dash Brakes seems fine

    When I start the car no problems, starts smooth no lights come on in dash, as soon as I start moving the ABS light comes on and stays on.
    Can anyone help me witha starting point.
    All fuses are good, when I take the fuse out for the ABS the ABS light comes on and stays on, however when fuse is replaced the light stays off until I start moving and then on it comes again.
    Fault in Front ABS Hubs????
    Any help would be appreciated

    I had a similar fault some time back, read this, it could be the common problem experienced with earlier models.

    Once you have moved off and the light comes on, what happens if you stop, turn engine off and restart, does the light then stay off? That's what happened to mine and it was a faulty ABS sensor.

    Thx I will chack the front abs lines for damage, and source the retaining clip.
    Where exactly does the retaining clip fit, being a revised item, I would have to fit it?? eg drill anything?

    Our VX did the same tonight, drives, brakes and starts fine and also the battery light stays on.
    Will search other posts to find the cause to correct.

    swap the relays around guys, before spending any money, and as for the battery light im guessing the alternator aint charging the battery properly, and again probally just the voltage regulator more than anything. Then again the battery could be stuffed. alternator should charge at 14.4 plus.
