    Here is a low quality pic of the ABS Sensor

    TFI automatically rotated the picture by 90 degree to left

    Is the sensor cleaning a part of routine service?

    don't think it is a routine part of service

    I changed my brake pad to bosch, the ABS failure lits up for first five minute of cold start then goes off.

    Since yesterday the ABS lights up continuesly.

    Cleaned the ABS sensors as advised by Vijay, but of no resolve.

    Other than some rust there wasn't much on sensors.

    Only the ECU diagnostics can tell if something's wrong, can be a software glitch or some wiring issue.

    I Measured the internal resistance of ABS sensor which reads 360k ohm.

    It cannot be a magnetic passive sensor. but an Active hall effect sensors requires additional power line making 3 wires but Punto has only 2. What is this?
