Re: Possible ABS Fault?

If the A.B.S light does not come on with the ignition, that's a mot fail.

I would suggest someone has been tampering,
Because the A.B.S light staying on is a well known problem for 406's :roll:

Time to start investigating :?

Re: squeaky creaky rear suspension

I can honestly say, I don't know :(

I tried various types of spray lube, nothing worked :frown:

The good news is it's past two mot's with me & passed both, with just a snigger at the squeaking :oops:

Could be that it's dry, mine doesn't get driven in the wet if I can help it.

Re: squeaky creaky rear suspension

My coupe does the same :frown:

It's all the rear rubber bushes in the suspension arm's.

I have tried lubrication to no avail, but a full suspension overhaul is in the planning.

Just checked through my old posts,
It's terminal 4 on the near side, pop a 20amp fuse into holder 15

As I said mine was removed from another car which it had been fitted to by the after market company Towsure.
