After the tire was on, I started to drive and in a couple of mintues the bas/asr light came on and the car shutoff. After waiting a while, I restarted the car. It idled for a while and then the same thing happened. The bas/asr light came on and the engine shutoff, the car was not moving, it was still in park. Is the problem the asr sensor, if so how do I fix it?
The lights coming on is most probably the wheel speed sensor for the side that was dropped whilst changing the wheel, the sensor is fitted behind the hub. But I do not know why the engine shut off, it should go into limp mode and not completely shut off.
