    Could be one of the sensors acting up. Also check if all the ABS wires running out of the wheels are intact. I had a similar issue sometime back and it went away after cleaning the sensors. Our fellow member Vijay_Khasa has posted the information about cleaning them. Can't find them now!

    Hi, Pls visit FASS and get the diagonisis done. It could be dust from brake pads or similar thing on the sensors etc.

    i had similar issue (ABS unavailable) and this was due to the sensor wire bEing pinched by the weight of the passenger seat at the back... Got it insulated then there was no repeat of this issue.

    Check the battery condition as well :confused. I was getting abs failure, airbag failure along with odo blinking. Checked with TASS and found the battery was dying. Changed the battery to amaron din 55 and now no errors. :p

    Thanks to all for your inputs. I went to KHT motors, for diagnosis . They identified ABS wire chewed by mouse. Its there on the left hand side of engine bay near to the battery.

    By the way is there any permanent solution to stop rats entering into the car..? Earlier also in my old car i got the same problem.
