Re: ABS and brake warning lights on
I thought I would post a follow-up so people doing a search on this in the future could find some recommendations.
Well, after 12 days at the shop, with varying degrees of certainty that they were actually doing anything with my car, I finally got irritated enough that I went down there and picked it up and drove it to a dealership. On the drive I could feel that the power-assist brakes were not working (it shuts down when there is an ABS warning). The dealership fixed it in approximately 2 1/2 hours. They identified through a code that a relay under the fuse box had not been reconnected. Because it was under the fuse box, the shop never identified it. The shop had actually taken it to another dealership, and though the shop told me over the phone that the other dealership did not identify any codes, the paperwork that the shop accidentally left in my car proved otherwise... in fact, the other dealership was probably a half hour away from fixing my car (9 days before I got fed up) when the shop felt that the dealership was "ripping them off" and pulled the car out of their service department.
To add insult to injury, based on my own research online (through this forum and others) I had been telling the shop for DAYS that they needed to go back through all the relays and make sure they were well-connected.
So, in my case, ABS and brake warning lights=unconnected relay.
Thanks for your help.
