ABS and Traction Control lights illuminated

#1 by PorkPie , Mon Feb 11, 2019 11:49 pm

All of a sudden, my ABS and both traction control lights have lit up on the dashboard. Plugged my code reader in, and no engine management or trouble codes.
What does it mean?

I remember this happening to me on my previous L200, check fuse 12 under the bonnet. (check 'em all in case I've not remembered the number correctly).

On mine, it turned out a connector had melted under the passenger seat carpet which then blew that fuse and threw the lights up. Easy fix if that's what's caused it...

@PorkPie didn't you say your carpet was about as moist as a river?


Anything is possible, all you need is imagination or own a bank!

I did!
Haven't yet had a chance to check the fuses, but the carpet is definitely wet.

why dont you pull the carpet and look under it?


If it's not broken yet, you're not trying hard enough.
