View Full Version : Brake size cause trac/abs system to malfunction?

I replaced my stock discs with cross drilled/slotted rotors all around and since then have run into the age-old "trac off" and "abs" lights all the frickin time. After reading the million and one posts referring to a bad hub or speed sensor, I had the hubs/sensors checked out and my mechanic said they were ok. Now I ask, is it possible that if the brakes were not exactly to oem size that it would affect this system? Any thoughts are MUCH appreciated!!

The Brake rotors shouldn't effect that at all.

Its not the rotors.

Go to a different mechanic and get another opinion.

go to a mechanic with a good scan tool they can tell you which hub it is in like 30 seconds or tell you if it is something else. (Dealers going to charge you atleast $60+ for that) the guy I take mine to charges me nothing.

Thanks guys, I went to another place and the guy didn't say "hub" but he suggested new bearings.. I'm still gonna stick w/your opinions on the SVS/Trac Off/ABS light theories though and be suggestive of hub replacement... thanks again-

the bearings/abs sensor are in the "hub" but you need to figure out which one it is.. hence why i suggested someone with a scan tool :)
