Default asc/abs warning light on dash.

Recently I had been having the asc/abs warning light flash up in bright orange - annoying in daytime and unbearable at night! - anyway I heard some horror stories about hydraulic brake failure etc with all associated costs and began to worry.

I had the missus check the brake lights etc as I had heard/read on here that a blown bulb can cause the warning to illuminate. Another common reason was a dirty or malfunctioning wheel sensor. However neither of these seemed to be causing the issue so it was off to get the codes read at the mechanics workshop.

As the apprentice parked my Paj up on the hoist I thought I noticed only the top lcd brake light working but that couldn't be because her indoors had checked them right?......WRONG , turns out she didn't realize the 2 big plastic corner lamps served a function .

15 minutes and $140 later I left red faced .

If your Pajero is flashing up the asc/abs warning lamp then you might want to save yourself the embarrassment and check all bulbs before heading to the workshop , I wish I did

Maybe time to trade her in?

I hope this report helps you save a few bucks on diesel henceforth by understanding that the main ingredient, by volume, in premium diesel is in fact marketing bullshit.
