    It could be you have damaged the ABS sensor....you need a star diagnosis test really to establish what it could be.

    i am going to check the sensor again today as i only checked it in the dark last night
    i don't really want to plug it into star as my local mb dealer just can't give me a price to plug it in they said it can go up to £150 to plug it in depends how long it takes
    in my opinion that is a stupid amount of money to spend to plug a car into a computer

    Plenty of independens have Star diagnosis no need to go to a dealer if you dont want to.

    I had a star done at Andy Gale Mercs an INDY and the bill with VAT was just short of £50
    I had a similar problem with lights on dash saying brakes etc where not working after a big bill it turned out to be the small battery under the air filter under bonnett it about the size of a motorbike battery that charges the aux functions once that was changed all lights out they are around £70-£80 from merc dealer easy fit if yours has one check when last re newed and save money i learnt after £2k in bills????
