Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Hve you scanned it to see which codes are stored?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no I have a programmer op port and don't have scanner
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 7 months ago.

Normally when both lights are triggered it is by the ABS seeing an issue that can effect the ABS and base brake system. Without knowing which ABS codes are stored I would start at the brake fluid level reservoir. It could be low or the float could be sticking.


Thanks for letting me help you & for leaving me a ~5 STAR EXCELLENT~rating when ready. Rating results in the website paying me from the question fee you have already paid. Although I appreciate customers saying "Thank You" that alone does not result in me being compensated if you were pleased.

Thanks Chris
