    Hi Colin
     
    Never seen that one - are we talking C4 or C2 ? When did the light appear - immediately after fluid change / bleeding, on brake application  ??? Professional change or DiY ?
     
    Let us know, cheers, Maurice

    Is it orange or red?  I thought (can't check, car not here) the only orange one was the brake pad wear indicator.
    Anyway the ABS light that's not the green one (on C4):  I've had this come on immediately after a service because of fiddling about around the wheels that causes an ABS sensor to give up on life.  They don't last forever.  I've had 2 or 3 of them replaced in the last 14 years/70k miles.
     
    I think there is a good chance that it was not the change of brake fluid that caused it but something else done at the same time.
    Although I guess poor bleeding of the ABS pump might cause it (but would that not been one of the other brake warning lights?)
