\015 1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on and stays on for sometime then will go off and then on again. Is there anyway to reset it or turn it off. Now unable to get a warrant of fitness until it is off. \015\012Diagnostic said right rear speed sensor. Cleaned sensors it stayed off but not long enough to get it back to workshop for the WOF.\015
Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..
