Renault Megane Copue 1.6 Year 2000 ABS Light keeps coming on
Hi first time posting here but I got a Renault Megane Coupe 1.6 year 2000 about a month ago.
Its a great going car but since I got it the ABS light and SERV light comes on the dash every so often.
Its not all the time but I checked the usual areas to see if something was wrong that was making it come on.
I found that the ABS reluctor ring on the driver side was broken so I ordered the part and changed it on Saturday past. The light then came on again that night after the ring was changed but went off after awhile like it normally does.
I checked the car again and found that the reluctor ring on the passenger side was fine with no cracks etc. but the CV boot had a tear in it and was pouring grease all over the wheel, ABS sensor etc.
I cleaned up the mess and got a new CV boot which I fitted onto the passenger side last night.
Today the light has came back on and I am completely lost on why or what to do. I can't find any relevant information to the Megane Coupe Year 2000 about ABS problems.
I have seen some threads saying to reset the ABS on the dash but this option is not available in my car that I know off.
The sensors seem in good condition and all the grease that had spilled from the CV Boot on the passenger side has been cleaned off them.
The ABS light and SERV light are not coming on frequently but I did see a thread that described the light coming on for awhile after the work is done as it adjusts to the changes??
I would appreciate any help or information that anyone has about this type of Megane.
Would the best option now be too leave it into a garage or is there possibly a simpler method (and less expensive issue) that could resolve this.
The only thing left for me to change is the sensors but I cant find any links to buying the specific ones I need for my make of Renault and year. Also the sensors do not appear to be damaged or in any way affected.
Again any help or tips would be great.
