Abs Light!!!

Well I replaced the ABS relay (Grey) in my car and the darn ABS light keeps coming on!. I can remember that the light keeps coming on since I had some brake work on the front done about a year ago. I understand that there are some sensors in the front for the ABS unit. Is it possible that when the mechanic was doing the front brakes that they failed to hookup the sensors correctly.?? Thanks

You might want to have the wheel sensors checked at each corner, not the sensnors on the pads, but the wheel speed sensors. If those are loose or failed they may give a reading to the indicator, also have your mechanic do a complete check of the system as to rule out any other problems.

Did you have the light reset? It's possible this is the problem. I know that in most cases, after you do any ABS work, you have toi reset the light. Should only be about $10 at the dealer.
