    It has to be and we had one the same last week,, you still have normal brakes without the ABS,,,,, those 3 faults leave nothing else but the front wheel sensor probably nearside

    I think it will be a slow journey if the box locks up, just take it easy and do not thrash it, thats all you can do, you can coast down the hills

    If its very dark, should you not go for a full oil/filter change rather than just diluting your current oil?
