Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

There is issues on these cars where rear ABS sensors can scrape rust build up on the hub ABS pickup ring. When it contacts, it can short the sensor out and burn out the ABS control unit.

Are all the ABS and Slip lights on when you start the car or do they only come on when you start to drive?
