Not good, a scanner capable of triggering the abs unit is now required. Dealer unit and/or Tech11, high line Snap On units also.

Yeah...did some Googling and thats what I arrived at also...looks like a $59 job,flushing the ABS system,at Midas is gonna turn into a bigger headache than I anticipated....looks like its tow truck time tomorrow....thanks for the reply...
