Is the scanner actually talking to the ABS system? Can live data be read from wheel speed sensors, brake switch etc?

If i remember right i had something similar on a Xsara Picasso ABS system many years ago, Lexia was reading no fault codes & the issue turned out to be a blown ABS warning lamp bulb. The warning message was coming up But there was no actual ABS warning lamp, Is the actual lamp with the picture of the skidding car illuminating?

Hi Wheeler,
Sorry for the slow reply to your good suggestions.
Yes, the ABS light comes on along with the message.
I had the car tested with a 'proper' OBD reader, still no fault codes.

I replaced the two front sensors (both were damaged) and cleaned the road dirt off the slotted rings. Close check showed up no cracks or missing segments. A couple of places the rust had pushed them a bit high (shown by shiny sections). Gentle tapping was enough to deal with that.

ABS light has gone out on its own, all now good ...

A lot of fuss about nothing really! Thanks again for the help and advice.
Ciao, Capn K ;-)
