    Default ABS FAULT - ERS EBS FFS not working

    So tomorrow will be my 4th visit to my mechanic in 6 days to try and solve my cars plagued stuffups, clutch replaced = clutch fluid more on my garage floor than servicing my clutch, they washed my engine bay with caustic degreaser and left it on my paint work, wrongly diagnosed a rocker gasket leak (engine oil) for clutch fluid . And now my ABS fault is showing on the screen and the EBS traction control light is constantly on ........why me lord??????

    Is it time to look for a new mechanic? Not too difficult to find Pug-friendly garages in Brisbane...

    Does the problem (temporarily) disappear if you turn the ignition off and back on again? I don't know what parts 206s share with 307s, but in the 307 (and 407 I think) these symptoms can be caused by a faulty brake switch (sometimes just a bad connection to switch). If the car has Cruise Control you should find that is disabled as well.

    A mechanic familiar with modern Pugs will quickly be able to tell if that is the problem...

    Cheers
