I had this a few months ago, turned out to be one of the 4 speed sensors....trick is, finding which one.......you need this very expensive abs diagnostics machine, so I had to bring it in to the $tealership
, paid a $125.00 diagnostic fee, they told me which one it was, offered to replace it for $350.00, I said no thanks.......ordered it for about $90.00 on-line & replaced it myself.......also when both the asc & abs lights are on, both traction control & anti-lock braking are disabled......
p.s. If you bring it in to the Dealer, be wary if they try to sell you shit that the abs control unit is bad, then we're talking $$ thousands $$.
Get a second opinion.............
