Hi i have just bought a polo, and has this fault: the abs &hand break light is on al the time and there is beeping also all the time, the abs itself is not working, i went to a garage and to read the faults, and there was no fault code. please help
Can anyone help. The ABS warning light and fault message has appeared but today I was driving as usual, applied the brakes and there was a sudden grinding noise from the engine bay and the brake pedal felt hard then grindy, it felt like I had a load of cogs grinding together under my pedal. Then all was ok again. The pads seem fine. If they were gone I'd hear them scraping all the time. Also lost brake power when it happened. Is my abs pump, or whatever it is, broke? Feel that I should not drive the car till its sorted. Its done 132k miles but does have a S.H. Just my luck really as I am trying to sell it!!
Got an 04 2.0 TDI and was out yesterday lunchtime and had to brake heavily, although not so much that I felt the judder of the ABS working. Parked the car went shopping returned to made my way to the office without any problems. But when I started up later that day after work the ABS and brake warning lights flashed up ans stayed on all the way home. This happened before over a year ago after some heavy braking , but cleared after restarting the car the next day. Also had a similar thing happen with my previous Mrk4 Golf TDI, again clearing itself after restarting. But this morning I still had the warning lights on, although brakes appear to be fine and I only got it services 3 weeks ago. Anyone else had this happen after heavy braking? Any ideas short of heading to a stealer! :/ Thanks
