    This time it says RHF hub is wire broken

    Where is it most likely to be damaged or loose?

    The fact that the fault code is "broken wire" doesnt mean it actually is too, measure the sensor's resistance

    In the first instance, I'd go with Sierrafery's diagnosis, it could be an open circuit or an otherwise bad sensor or a bad/dirty connection in the plug/socket arrangement. If it is an actual broken wire then the first places to check are those where there could be a bending or flexing stress such as at either end of the free tail between the hub and the chassis. You'd have to be pretty unlucky to have a wire fail in a securely fixed cable form.

    I may get a spare sensor as if I am going to whip it all apart I may as well be ready

    Well this is interesting

    SIX lights, red one, ABS, TC, HDC, SLS, raised height all lit

    4 as I switch on and the other two after about 30 seconds of driving.

    No SLS errors, just various ABS ones

    When driving really slow, live data is around 0 - 1 - 2 km/h on the other three sensors, the right front goes 0 0 2 24 64 0 0 0 0 0 24 64 number of is rough duration as I drive along very slowly.

    24 is used for anything in mid 20s same with 64, but I have seen these two speeds on one go.

    Any more ideas please?

    I do have a spare hub just in case.
