Warning Lights on

Recommended Posts

After replacing the battery, starter, and engine ground strap, etc. which involved disconnecting the battery several times, now I have several of the warning lights on the dash that don't go off. These include the PSM warning light, the PSM Off light ( and the PSM won't turn back on by the switch), the brake fluid light, the brake wear light, the ABS light, and the battery light. I have turned off the ignition and restarted the car several times, but the lights stay on. Check the car with my Durametric and there are NO ERROR CODES for any of these. Lots of brake fluid, no worn through pad sensors, the alternator/gauge is showing almost 14 amps, etc. etc.

Any ideas on what could be causing this? I am sure that the ABS and PSM are deactivated with these lights. Could something been knocked loose? :angry:

I've seen the ABS and PSM light come on if some of the wheel sensors is giving wrong readings but weird that you get battery too. Just wondering but perhaps with the electrical changes you've made recently perhaps the computer for ABS/PSM is fried. Does the Durametric report that it can find the ABS unit?

Durametric shows no error codes for anything (other than alarm codes which are old and the Durametric cannot erase. Also, the brake wear and low fluid lights, etc. I think I am going to try to disconnect the battery again. See if that resets everything.

Same identical problems with lights and I cleaned the wheel sensors on each wheel with no change. Please post your findings as I am stumped also. The only thing I did recently was a new clutch master cylinder and bleed.

Had same problem on a C4S, turned out to be alternator..or hoping it is..waiting for it to be repaired. Found posts on here with folks with warning lights you mention, was usually battery or alternator.
