Default New abs sensors

I had the abs/esp errors so forum member BiGK very kindly scanned my car for me (a true gent') it showed that my n/s front and o/s rear sensors were faulty. I have just replaced both today. I am still getting the error so my question is, do I need to get the faults cleared or should replacing the sensors stop the error? I'm now thinking it could be the abs ring(s). Thanks again for any advice.

did you try the BSI reset and battery check?

Could you txt me your email address so I can send over all the files?

Had a look on servicebox, there is a wire that goes up to the fuel spout... but unsure what it plugs into.

that wire is most likely for the fuel cap sensor

Yes I think you are right. BiGK is referring to my other issue of "fuel filler flap not locked" I might try another solenoid release motor for this. I'm just trying to sort my abs issue out first.

there is always a slight possibility that the rear sensors have been plugged in to the wrong socket, giving a false error message, light normally goes out even if you just plug a good sensor in BUT dont turn a wheel

As above replacing a sensor should fix the issue without any code clearing as the car does a self test every time it starts so if it sees no fault it works simple as that.

sometimes the rings are the true issue though

I didn't have an error when I got the car but short while after and I've only replaced one sensor as per Peugeot planet, would planet not say both rears at fault if they were plugged into to wrong ones? O/s rear was plugged into the left hand connector as you look down on the fuel tank from inside the car.

Yeh I'm thinking it could be the ring(s). Think it needs scanning again. The sensors didn't look that old, which was a worrying sign.

planet would only say nsr faulty but if that was actually plugged into osr it would lead you down a false path, easy enough to check with planet, just unplug one and read fault

Ah right I see. So I need it scanning again. Thanks for you're input.
