ABS/PSM Faulty Lights

Recommended Posts

I have a 99 C4, and this weekend I went for a drive and my ABS light went on along with PSM/off. I did not do any hard braking or anything like that, It just went on during the drive. After pulling over and re-starting the car, the light's went off.

This is the second time this happened this month, eventhough the lights go off after re-starting, I wanted to know if anybody experienced this, or has an idea of what might be causing this.

I am experiencing it on a 2001 turbo. I saw your other post on Rennlist and the reference to MAF problems. Mine started for about a week than the CEL came on and it was a failed MAF (I oiled the K&N, not suppose to do this in a turbo i guess). However, after replacing the MAF, I still get periodic ABS with PSM lights. I had read in another post that a tangled wheel sensor might be breaking the connection periodically and causing the fault. I have also read that chips (ECU upgrades) may be causing the problem as well, I have a cargraphic chip.

Still looking for the answer myself.
