After changing the brake pads the ABS light is on. The Brake warning light is also flashing. Checked fuses, checked wire at brake and it appears to be OK. Any ideas.

This is caused by a failure in your ABS module. The ABS Module is the computer unit that maintains the ABS Sensors. Your standard brakes will still work fine, but your ABS will not. Costs around $500 to fix.

You can find rebuilt units online. Put one on mine after having this same issue and it has worked fine for over a yea now. I think it was around 250 or so for the unit. You have to take yours off and send it to them and they rebuild it and send it back. You can still drive without it on the car. Just be sure to cover it with a zip lock baggie or something to keep out moisture while its removed.
