PO had his mechanics chasing the ABS "problem" for several years to no avail. I had the best-of-the-best try to "fix" the ABS when it wasn't an ABS problem, "fix" the sensor, find any route to make it stop poltergeisting me to insanity. Fail, Fail, Fail.

So, we went in elbow-deep; it was either drill it out or pull it out, but out it was gonna be, by god.

My entire van world has just reached nirvana.

I'm thinking of having Christine make it into a necklace.... waaaay more durable than any ol' diamond

... this... This... THIS... THIIISSSSS!!!

Yay! I love a roasted chicken, goes great with tequila!
My danged ABS light is on too, after changing out my unit bearings with dynatrac's free spin hub kit and throwing not 1 but 2 sets of sensors on there to no avail, it's just staring at me from an otherwise darked dash, a constant reminder that if I were to ever need the big heavy beast to come to a computer assisted shuttering stop on the highway doing 75, I would have to settle for locking up the front end with my new cryogenically treated, slotted rotors as I watched the back end flip over my head. No big deal, it's just a little light....now hidden behind a small piece of black electrical tape.

Chicken and tequila it is! We'll be passing thru CO about this time Summer '15... meet up for dinner.

I couldn't tape over the little %#@*& because my inst. panel has an outer shield with an inch or so gap to get to the actual place to put tape... clever

Pm me for my address, A gift card to KFC work for me!!!!!!

No it doesn't. George W. Bush signed it into law in 2007.

It's amazing how many things get blamed on Obama when he was no where near the accident.

FOX news has demented this Nation forever.

I know, right? How does a lightbulb question get turned into an Obama issue?

Thought maybe it was the TPMS warning light. Mine has been on for 110,000 miles. Love to pull that sucker out.
