Default 307 2.0 HDI 2003 - ABS & ESP Lights + Brakes not working correctly.

Hello,

I know there are many posts on this site (& others) relating to the meaning of ABS & ESP lights coming up. I understand in the majority that this is because of the Left Side Rear ABS sensor gap.
I have had both rear sensor off, cleaned the rust off from behind the sensor and ensured a gap of approximatley 2mm.

However this has not worked for me I am still getting the lights, pretty much constantly now, as soon as I start my car.

The other issue is that sometime I will press the brakes and they feel kind of loose & cluncky.

Please note: my brake condtions are all like new so the problem is not discs/pads.

Any help would be appreciated!!

Chris

Have you checked the brake light switch?
A duff brake light switch will bring up the same error..... been there myself

It could be a faulty sensor, not just a case of cleaning. Someone with Planet would be able to confirm this for you.

Hi there, thanks for responding.

I have located the brake switch (behind glove box). It is connected properly. But how would I know if the switch is at fault?

Any idea how I would find someone with Planet? Would I have to take it to a garage?

Chris.

If its at fault, the brake lights won't work.... or wont work all the time - mine started becoming intermittent, and then off more than on, all within a day.

There is a link on the forum to a list of Planet owners. You need to update your profile so we all know where you are, and someone may be able to help.

Also if you do a search on the forum, there is a very simple solution to checking which abs sensor might be at fault by using only multimeter. I posted it just few days ago.

Hi again,
There are no problems with my brake light, in terms of it working, it comes on without fail when the brake is pressed and goes off again when depressed.

I have put a shout out on the thread you provided, to see if I can find someone with Planet near me. Fingers crossed.

Chris.

@jmkent...

Brake light works ok everytime when pressed. So does that rule out a problem with the switch?

I have asked if anyone lives newar wigan with Planet on the forum. Hopefully I will get some joy.

Thanks,
Chris

Mine was easy to tell it was playing up, so if it works every time, points more likely towards a duff sensor on one wheel.

There are a couple up around the Manchester area, so might get a reply.

Hopefully! Tjat would be good.

I have read that the NSR sensor is the most likely cause. Will the Planet system identify the exact sensor at fault?
