Service light and Traction Control light on.... Help please!

Hi guys, as above, driving my new 182 back from the dealers, steady speed on the motorway about 65mph, then after half an hour or so, the SERVICE and TRACTION CONTROL lights appear....

MPG was 41 so thats fine, pulled over, turned the engine off and back on, the lights went out...

Any ideas what this could indicate?

Many thanks :)

My 182 does this occasional, and the ABS light comes on. After turning off and back on, all lights go out. What could the problem be?

If it is the abs light as well it's a loose sensor. This could be the same for the problem you're having Matthew. I'm sure someone with more knowledge than me will know.

Cant be arsed TBH, its a right treck where I got it from, of and Arctic ;)

Hasnt come back on yet so maybe because its been sat for a few weeks maybe??

Nice one, didn't take long to get bored of the GTI then! If you end up needing to take it in I can recommend a good garage over my way. Always cheap and seems to knows his s**t...

Cheers mate! Golf was so boring lol

My old one did it, but te ABS came on aswell when I was on the brake pedal for 5 mins in traffic, then went off.

Ahhh the joys of being back in a Clio lol

Done abit of reading up and Sounds like a steering angle sensor fault, the wheel has been re-trimmed recently as it's like new! Anyone know if this is a cheap fix?

hey fella. i had the exact same fault, those 2 lights come o usually on te mtorway, turned out to be brake pedal sensor, have a look in the guides section, it took me a coupe of goes before it stopped coming on ut its been over a year since ive last seen those ligts.

could be an abs fault check ur driveshafts to see if ur cv gator clip hasnt come off and gone over ur abs ring :dapprove: have had one at work that ended up being an abs unit as it was an internal fault in the abs unit :eek: but check the basics and if nothing comes up worth booking in to renault and get them put it on the fault reader

i had the abs light, service light and traction control light on just recently pop up twice, when i got the car diagnosed it came up with a fault behind the brake pedal, its a sensor i cant remember the name, i havent replaced and sorted the problem yet but i believe the sensor to be around 30 quid and easy to sort, hope this helps.

Mine does it too but birchdown told me it maybe just something simple like the sensor behind the break pedal or somethin needs adjusting.

I can plug it in for you if you like. Only a small charge ;) Not too far away. I work manchester way also.

i had the traction light, service light and abs light come on, and it was all down to a brake pedal sensor which cost around £11. job doen, very easy to do,
