Mkiv Abs Light On Instrument Cluster

3883 Views 12 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jcdub
Last week I put new top mount in my TDI. A few days later the ABS light came on the dash. Upon a bit of inspection the drivers side sensor plug looked like it was disturbed so I opened it and there was dirt in there so I cleaned it (there was dirt and moisture in there) and pulgged back in.
But the light is still on and ABS off. Is the sensor plug knackered or do I need to get it reset with vag-com?
Passenger side looks grand.

Also I have done polybushes on wishbones before but I am trying to put MKIV ones in and there are a fucker to get in, will any garage press them in, or I live about 25 mins from Martin Tracey so I might go over there. (who also has vag-com)
They are powerflex.
Any help appreciated.

Will the "leaving the battery disconnected over night and resetting the ECU" trick reset an airbag fault?

How do you go about resetting it? just go for a drive giving it various different conditions and let it learn all over again?
I knew it was too good to be true! plus i dont have a month!

Can you do this with a VAG COM?
What we talking about here trevor? ball park figure - do i need software aswell?

Also wheres a good place to buy them? Ebay?
Legendary trevor cheers for that.
