ABS & Brake lights on

Jumped in truck at noon today, fired her up and the ABS & Brake lights are on in the cluster. Checked master cylinder-full. Truck stops perfect.

What do I do now?

If you shut the truck off and restart it does the light go away?

mine did that when i had bald back tires on and good ones up on the front.

it seems the computer did not like having the tires spinning at different speeds



I also got the truck to throw the same lights when i was on the dyno and had the cruise set at 65 for about 15min trying to make sure coolant was flowing after i took my radiator out once.

I had my tires rotated a week ago. Wonder if that set something off?

Might have. In my truck, those lights come on if I am towing on slippery surfaces (snow, sand, etc..) and i'm using the 4WD. But, mine go away if I shut the truck off and turn it back on.

sounds like a possible ABS sensor malfunction, is it possible that the sensors were bumped or hit by anything when the tires were rotated?

You might be on to something there. Duke, is your ABS acting up?

A few of our trucks had a service bulletin issues on them. Something about the abs controller under the seat getting wet. Basically what they did what cut the carpet out from around the controller so it would not hold moisture around the controller. I'm guessing this was only on the snow states.
