Problem with ABS & PSM problem with new wheels

Recommended Posts


I just put a set of Carrera III wheels on my 2002 Cab. with the Same tires. I put 7mm spacers on the front yesterday with my original wheels and noticed I got a ABS and PSM failure when driving today. I put the new wheels on and got the same error today. Any ideas?

Check to see if your brake lights work.

If they do then you could also have a bad MAF.

BINGO, if I press the brakes just a little the break lights come on, if I press downfurther as to stop, the lights go off

I moved the switch in and out a couple times, seems it was stuck and could not come oput all the way, it is fine now

amazing the two things were unrelated

Thank you!
