    This is why I cringe at the thought of having to hand over the keys...to anyone.

    Yea i did but its really dirty by the brakes and all under there.

    Someone posted this on another board.

    this happened to my gf's Durango
    I pulled the electrical connectors on the ABS on the front brakes and cleaned them out (a lot of brake dust) and the problem went away. The paint shop might have gotten a little on the connectors.

    Check the wiring running from the L/f wheel, through the wheel opening, then up to the harness. They probably disconnected or damaged it.

    the reason why it showed no codes is an OBDII code reader can not read ABS codes they have theyre own parameters and unless you have like a TECH II(GM scantool) you wont read them...something probably got unplugged or a ground got knocked loose...take it back make em fix it

    The paint shop will probly say that the lights were on before you brought it to them. Just take it by the nearest Gm dealer and have them take a look at it.

    I called them today and told them about it. and they said "they are still on" We can take a look at it for you. Im going in the morring to pick up the front plate.

    Some have been saying it may be caused by the dust on the sensor by the rotor. And they said all we did was jump start it.

    I found out it was water in the abs fuse and blew it out. I think they still owe me 90 dollars for taking it to the dealer.

    Bitter sweet I guess. Sweet you got it figured out, bitter that you didn't get it fixed before taking it to the dealer. The shop *may* reimburse you but I would bet they'll say you should've brought it to them first....which you should've.
