Ok my ABS is broke,
Now my dash looks like a christmas tree with ABS, braking, stop and service lights all lit and the speedo has stopped working.

Now I have found out that the ABS controlls the speedo but is the speedo not working an indication of the extent of the damage.
e.g if it was say one sensor broken would the speedo still work.
Will dirty sensors stop it working or is it likely to be something more expensive. Im thinking cloged sensors as the brakes are new and have done 600 miles but there has been intermittant signs (abs light staying on untill you drive off, coming on with no braking at all etc) of it failing that have become worse and now it has finally told me.

Its in the garage on tuesday under a 500 warranty but I would prefer to know before hand if its going to be major.
Currently in sleepdeprived's garage:
megane 1.6 16v
