    TCS BRAKE ABS light on intermittently

    3 days ago my gauge lights mentioned began to comeon while Im driving or upon start up. The light goes out if I turn the car off but comes back on later after driving. No new rear end work or mods.

    ooo. i just had this happen but i did a (not to sound like a dick) massive burnout and was on the brakes hard, which in turn sent the abs lights a blarin'. that coupled with new pads and no bleeding have really shown me just how much balls i have with no braking power!

    have you had any brake work done, because this may have triggered something. the traction control runs concurrently with the 3 channel abs so that is why its coupled together...

    hmm im stumped....

    any more info you can give??

    figured it out, it was the foglamp wire in front of the radiator. There is a connection there that can get corroded. I just cut ot and used a wire connector and BAM no more lights.
