    Hi pjays_huletun,

    First, do you have 4-wheel anti-lock brakes or rear-wheel anti-lock brakes. Let us know and that will determine a starting point. Also, did the light start flashing immediately after the work was performed, or some time later? Does the light say "ABS" or is it the regular brake light? If you have either ABS system, a description of the system and troubleshooting (trouble code retrieval) is covered in Chapter 9, Section 16 of the Haynes manual for your vehicle (no. 24070).

    Second, go back and double-check your work. Make sure any electrical connectors in the areas near the components you dealt with are properly connected, and make sure the hydraulic system has been bled completely.

    We'll do what we can to help, but as I'm sure you can understand, it's tough to diagnose things from a remote location. But like I said, maybe we can come up with something to steer you in the right direction.

    pjays hueltun - You need to read Section 16 and 17 (starting on page 9-16) of manual #24070 to determine what system you have before you can begin. There are two types used one uses just the rear wheels and one that uses all four wheels. It does not mean you have four wheel drive.
