At first we had a 20" on there when it first started so I put on the usual spare to see if that would fix the problem but it didnt

ok, with the smaller wheel, the abs system is seeing a different wheel speed from the others, this sets a code and the light will come on, you will ne to get the original 18 inch back on this, when the code is set on the second trip, it will go into limp mode and you will only be able to go about 20 mph,Tim
