There isnt a seperate fuse i could find. I think it must be lumped in with the lighting fuse. The dash light is on when there is a fault. It will go off when there isnt a fault.

First thing to check is for any water in the plugs on the sensors on the offside suspension arms front and rear, also check the arms are not seized. This usually causes the light to come on.

Otherwise it could be a damaged wire or one of the units is unplugged.

There is a common fault of water entering these sensors, hopefully its not that as they are 240 quid each to replace as i just found out.......... If you want to disable the unit, you just need to unplug both plugs, but the warning light will stay on.

Do the lights work ok? or do they gradually lower and shine down on front of the car?
