Leave the Battery of for 30min's this will clear the fault's ...

As it may be a "one off fault" wait an see if it reoccurs i it dose

You will need the fault codes read to determine the exact cause of the problem ...

tried that and no good . Sorry its the abs esp and anti skid lights that are on . When i keep the brake peddle depressed and start engine the lights stay off until i release the peddle . The abs is not working now when i brake all locks up. I think it must be the abs pump thats gone. Ty gcl and sam for advice

Probably something cheaper than the pump,itl only take a speed sensor or brake switch to put the lights on and shut the system down.
