Re: Renault Clio 2 - ABS + SERV Lights On*FIXED*

I have this same problem with our 51 plate clio 1.2 8 valve (larger headlamp model).
In addition to the ABS problem the speedo is reading 15 to 20mph faster than it should. I have checked that the correct 14" tyres are fitted. I have also clarified that this Clio's speedo reads from the ABS system.

My plan on how to attack this problem is:
Check & clean all reductor rings, check & clean all sensors.

Does anyone know how many teeth the reductor rings should have, bearing in mind the speedo reads from the system?

My suspician is that a reductor ring somewhere could be damaged or the wrong ones have been fitted in the past, this would account for the speedo reading error. I have fitted a new / 2nd hand speedo unit and speed readings remain fast.

Any idea's you may have would be gratefully received.
