Alright, on my 2003 GTZ I had my Anti-Lock and Traction Control lights come on. I know that the traction control came on as is it related to abs, but why the ABS? I checked all four pads and routers they look fine, plenty of wear remaining, and rotors are not warped.
I can feel the difference in breaking without abs.
The manual says take to a dealer, I wanted to try the forum first.
Brake Fluid Level is also fine.
What else?

I am still being stubborn and not taking her in to the Dealer. I did check the ABS fuse, it was fine. Looking through the service manuals on this website, I thought I narrowed it down to a bad wheel speed sensor. After taking all four wheels off and cleaning off metal shards (the sensors are magnetic), and checking each one's impedance(all fell in the appropriate range) I still have the problem. While the car breaks just fine I would like to have this fixed fairly quickly, as I wouldn't mind having ABS and traction control for the winter. I would appreciate any other ideas. Thanks

I had a right rear wheel speed sensor fail, I had a shop check it on their computer for $30, they wanted $120 to fix. I chose to purchase part online and replace using the service manual on this website. Took less than 30 minutes, parts cost $27+7 shipping.
If anyone else has this problem I would be happy to guide you through it.

Write up a tutorial and I will post it on the site. Glad the service manual was useful...

my car doesnt have abs so im not 100% positive but im guessing that those lights can be read to see which one is bad kind of like o2 sensors... call up some shops and ask if they can read abs codes.

what year is your car? you can look up part numbers using the mitsubishi CAPS program... the link can be found by doing a search here on the board.

then
type it in here for wholesale prices of OEM parts
