Re: brakes (abs light)
My abs light would come on periodically, and on a panic stop, allow one side of the brakes to grab while the other side wouldn't. I thought I was going nuts, because it didn't do it every time. Took it to my brake shop (I was prepared to just have them do a complete 4-wheel brake job if it meant not having the problem). I have 4-wheeel ABS, so they crawled up under the front end and snugged up bolts that hold the abs sensor in place on each front wheel. They did the same thing on the rear (only one sensor on the rear). That was in February, and i haven't had a problem since. So, maybe just snugging up the bolt that holds the abs in place, and making sure the plug is firmly seated, is what you need to do. Hope this helps.
