Hello, I bought new rims and tires for the car. But later I was driving all these symbol pops up on my dash I know they are fault but I don’t know how to reset them. They are; ABS, traction, brake lights. What do I do? Never had the problem before but after we put rims and tires all three symbols pop up. Sometimes it will disappear all together then pop up again. I know they are fault codes because I run it through a machine show nothing wrong.

All the lights seem related to possibly a wheel speed sensor. Are the wheels and tires the correct size and offset? Start simple, check under the vehicle and follow the ABS sensor wires to see if something was damaged due to misplacement or miss-routing. If one of the wheel speed sensors is malfunctioning, it will cause all these lights to come on.

Pic 1 shows the connector for the rear. Pic 2 shows rear sensor location (number 3 in the pic). Pic 3 shows where the front sensor makes connection inside a plastic / rubber box under the fender. Check that as well as the sensor shown in pic 4.

I suspect something was hit and caused a poor connection.

Let me know what you find,
