    VT Wagon
    Good afternoon everyone,

    I have many issues with my VTII wagon, however there is a new fault that has me worried.

    During start up,
    'Error' appears on odometer

    the following lights on the dash illuminate;
    ABS OFF
    Check power-train
    Oil Pressure
    TRAC OFF

    CRUISE light fail to illuminate when commanded. Cruise control continues to function and ACTIVE light continues to function when prompted.

    Cooling fans activate

    Temperature gauge needle fails (still points towards C)



    Whilst driving, the symptoms are the same but without the oil pressure light illuminating.
    ABS OFF light is often the first to illuminate, Followed by TRAC OFF & Check power-train.

    Often, whilst driving the warning lights extinguish though the cooling fan stays on. However the warnings come and go as the driving continues


    For reference;
    Oil levels are good.
    Thermostat has been replaced in the last year
    engine is V6, running primarily on petrol.
    439,951km.

    Pretty good chance your ABS module is stuffed, a common fault. Unplug the module and see if any of the warning lights turn off, the ABS light will still stay on though.
