I have a T reg secenic. Since i bought it, it has had a constant ABS light on the dashboard. I had spotted a broken/cut cable behind off-side wheel, and hoped that it would be that. I have since reconnected the wire, but it is still on.

I have also noticed a 'squelchy' sound with a slight hiss coming from the brake pedal after braking, and was wondering if that could have anything to do with it?

any suggestions welcome!!

many thanks!

that hissing noise is your servo, . small hole in the vacum rubber causes that. it shouldent interfear with abs , i had that hissing noise in my phase 3 espace for a long time and was not an issue.

I had a v reg clio that had the same problem. I think you may need a new abs sensor on one of the wheels. The light only comes on when there is a issue with the abs system. As soon as I replaced mine it went off! You may need to take it for a diagnostic test to find out which sensor. :cool:

A new front sensor for that age Scenic is going to cost around £65 for a new one you can check all the ABS sensors by disconecting them and using a multimeter check the individual sensor resitances at the connectors IIRC 0.95 Ohms each

you need to get the ABS ecu read. find out what the error is first, then get it wiped/reset, that should re-enable the ABS.
it has to be reset or it wont re-enable by itself.

there is a ABS interconnecting loom that runs across the subframe along the steering rack. this can fail sometimes, if the subframe has been incorrctly refitted.(trapped wires etc)

i had a similar fault after some clowns at a local garage repaired the car after an accident. i was getting a error of O/S/F wheel doing 655mph whilst stationary.
the connecting loom was damaged short/open circuit???

Correct the problem if it's a sensor and the light will go out and the ABS will work again has happened to me on my Scenic
