Another, possibly related, issue on the car is that when indicating right, the indicator works at double speed under braking. Could these two problems be related?

Thank in advance!
If the brakes are working ok is an ABS error an MOT failure? Don't see why it should be ... ? Or are the two systems not independent, so when one is fubarred the whole thing is?
