trinidax Posted March 26, 2008 Report Share Posted March 26, 2008 Hello all, I am new member and can't believe the wealth of info on this website. I have a question about my 2001 deville. I just bought the car off my father-in-law. I got an incredible deal and thus far absolutly love this vehicle. Went from a Ford Escort to this vehicle-wow what a difference! My first question-- My father-in-law got a mechanic to put all new brakes on this vehicle for me when I bought it. A few days later the traction control light and abs light come on after driving for a few minutes. They seem to come on after I hit a bump or traintracks. I don't actually hear the the traction control mechanical operation happening (humming or buzzing sound typically heard when hard braking). Just the warning lights come on. I pull the codes using what I've leared of this website by tuning ignition onand pressing the info up and on/off button for three seconds. The only code that comes up is ABS: C1228, which I gather means Right rear excesssive wheel spin variation. Can anybody tell me what this means. I just bought the car and then found out from my work that I am gonna be on layoff for couple weeks. And not to metion me and my wife expecting our firstborn in few months. Hopefully I can fix this problem myself. Any help will be appreciated--Thanx P.s. When i start the car the warning lights are not on, just when I drive and hit a bump. I have cleared the codes but they still come on after driving a bit. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
