WHENYOU START THE MOTOR ABS LIGHT COMES ON AFTER 3SEC.
Now mate I know you drive a cortina and they dont have many electronics in them like abs but obviously you have better things to do. there is a history of abs,steering bag lights etc coming on apparently ford can reset these but they charge a couple hundred to do this so I am told.
beg your pardon? who rang the bell and let every cantankerous idiot in the door? i'm sorry that i misread your first message and understood as it comes on and then goes out after a few seconds but there's no need to get rude and arrogant about it. if you dont want someone's opinion then dont post a message asking for it.
what has my driving a cortina which "dont have many electronics" got to do with it? i would have thought 17 years as a mechanic and 12 as an automotive engineer would have qualified me to answer a question without getting my head ripped off. and yeah i do have better things to do.
i hope someone does charge you a couple hundred bucks to reset it, u deserve it
