I just spent $1,290.00 to get a lot of work done to my car. New arm control, shocks, struts, alignment and a few other things. When I picked up my car from the shop the ABS light, traction light and ESP/BAS light was on. They were not on before I took it there. They told me it was fine the codes were on because they just did work to it and cleared them off. As soon as I left they returned and I ended up taking it back paying another $160.00 to have something else fixed. Then I leave and they came back on again. My tire locked up they're telling me it is my wheel bearing and hub and want another $175.00 to fix it. But I believe they caused the problem. What should I do?

Good afternoon,

The ABS is the issue. When there is a fault in the system, the light will come on and it will also disable the traction control. Once the ABS is repaired. they will all come back online.

There is a code set for the ABS and I need that code to help you.

This will not cause the other issues you have. They lied to you about working in. The light should not come on at all. There is a fault in the system. It may or may not be the result of there work but cannot be determined until I know the code.

A parts store will check it for free for you. Call them and ask them the code before they tried to clear it.
