Hi There,

Got a difficult one for you guys!

ASR light comes on and goes off when driving intermitently.
also when driving what feels like the asr/abs comes on mainly the O/S/F wheel but has come on the rear as well making the car dangerous to drive.

Please help as I've bought his troublesome motor for my mothers birthday on the 19th Nov. can't give it to her yet for obvious reasons and would like her to see her next birthday to!!!:confused:

Any pointers would be helpful.
Regards,
Stuart.

One other thing to check is all the tyres are the same/correct size for the car i have had this a few times as the tyre diameter is either slightly different to the rest it makes the car is wheel spinning and cuts the asr in

Thanks,
I've just bought a new set of tyres for it because allthough the same size are odd and shot anyway. sounds like thats the first thing to try. I'll let you know.
Regards,
Stuart.
