@steelmesh I dont think I can see the teeth,but I will see if I can count it with a scope read the signal.

@bogie no worries, I am always up for being questioned. Its the only way to learn and get better.

I was out of town last few days, but now I am back. So hopefully I will get another full week of driving in. I will keep everyone updated later inthe week.

So i have been driving the car for about 2 weeks back and forth to work now and the breaking seems to be working great. Still have a light on the dash unfortunately. I have had no luck figuring out the problem. only thing I can see is that the corvette hub must have a different number of teeth, so with out reprogramming the computer it will not work. I want to do the front brakes now, but would like to figure out the traction control and ABS first.

Do the fronts, if it is a tooth count the problem might work itself out once the fronts have the same number of teeth.

The different count front to back is telling the computer one set of tires is running faster than the other and the system sees that as an error thus the light.

Silver ghost, is that a tire/wheel simulator tool that I see in the pictures?  It looks similar to the WheelFit tool.

Hi Silverghost. A friend and I are in the process of doing the same thing with my solstice, have you found a way to get abs to work/eliminate the fault? If anyone else has done this to their car and can chime in, please do. Thank you.
