    Z28 questions...

    Alright, I'm thinking of picking up another Z28, it's actually the exact same as the last one I had minus the red seat inserts.

    Now, the car has been modded, and is showing 3 warning lights.

    -One is the service engine light and I'm assuming that's from the LT's.
    -The other is a ABS light that the dealer is blaming the new sloted/drilled rotors and new brakes on.
    -The other is some kind of warning light (I forgot what he said actually) that he's blaming the shift kit on.

    The car has a clear title, never wrecked and 33K miles.

    I'm wondering can a shift kit cause a warning light? And does new breaks/rotors cause the ABS light to trip?

    The car is appx. 150 miles from me so I haven't checked it out in person yet, all info. was shared over the phone.

    The shift kit should not cause a light. I have had a shift kit on my car for over 3 years, never had a light from it.

    The ABS light probably would not come from new rotors/brakes either. It might be on because of a difference in tire heights though. Check to see what size tires are on the front and rear.

    Damn, I wish the car was closer so I could check it out. Figured it was too good to be true though, guy is only asking 8500 and has 4 different craigslists ads, all with different prices (8500) being the lowest.

    Engine lights are probably o2 sensor codes from the LT's.

    ABS light is probably a hub bearing/wheel sensor. Get a code reader and find out.

    The other light is probably the Service Vehicle Soon light, and could possibly be caused by a trans kit. It could also be tied in with the ABS code.
