    ABS / Engine light issue (Monaro VX 6 speed) 5.7 litre

    I understand this could be caused by the ABS sensor/relay karking it, but in my case its intermittent. Temp guage also goes off as does aircon. Could it just be a loose connection somewhere? Or could battery disconnect / reconnect cause a reset and fix it?
