A week ago there was a warning came up on the dash----Brake Failure. Then 2 seconds later it said "Fault in ABS". 

This happened twice within 10mins and nothing since.

Was this the usual Citroen electrics playing up or a genuine fault.???

I don't have an owners handbook, but I didn't think the basic 92bhp Picasso had ABS brakes.

2010 Xsara Picasso  92bhp diesel---48,000 mls.

Sounds like it was just a glitch, but my last one had an ABS fault come up if i drove through huge puddles !

That was a bog-standard LX 2002.   I think they may all have ABS....   (stands to be corrected).

 

Maybe a wheel sensor on the way out - has it happened again yet ?
