    Hi guys. I don't know if anyone can help, but annoyingly, the VSA light is permanently on, on my wife's FN2. It was intermittent initially, but now it will come on with just the ignition, without even starting the car. I can see lots of threads with the ABS light or both lights on, but I'm just...
