you need to take it to someone with a code reader , what State ? Toyota can do this for you . Its most probably a pressure sensor somewere , but get the code to make it easy on yourselfVenus Bay

hey, im in nsw.

I have heard that my removing the ABS sensor and cleaning them would help.
I have tried this and there were metal shavings on the end of the sensor(im guessing from brake pads)

the light has not come on since.

Wht with the code reader do???

it will give you a fault code , then you cross refrence the code to the fault . The metal shavinfs on the senros will give create havic , sounds like you fixed it Venus Bay

i took my L/C to a toyota dealer who hooked up error code reader he pulled out the following codes 278 and 215.
Do these mean anything to you.
I still have the problem, toyota say the code is a sensor that needs to be replaced but they cannot gurantee it. At 300 bucks and not 100% sure im looking for other possiblities before changing sensor.
