I don't actually know how quick the code comes back. I took it in Monday and the codes were there. I went back Tuesday and they were there again. He didn't tell me specifically what the codes represented, just that they pointed at the ABS module. When he checked voltage and grounds at the module they were okay.
The lights come on, go off for a while and then come back. It seems like they react to the car's motion. Sometimes the brake pedal oscillates when I push it but not often. I am not a mechanic but it acts as if there's a loose or broken wire and that it's making contact sometimes then not. I've actually taken the car to three different mechanics. All them have basically said that the cause of the problem is illusive. The first mechanic cleaned all the contacts since the car is from up north. After he did that the lights were off for quite a while but now they're back.
It seems like this is a fairly common problem. All the mechanics have been quite willing to help but they end up baffled. I'm afraid to take it to the dealer since they will want to simply replace parts which would be very expensive. I can't even find any sort of diagram that I can use to trace wires myself. This whole experience has been very frustrating since I had numerous other things done on the car which have cost a good bit of money. I don't want to throw more money at symptoms; I really want to find the cause.
