Re: ABS light is on and Track-Off light is blinking
"ABS light came on and Track-off light started blinking" This happened after I replaced the rear struts (shock absorbers") It turned out to be the left rear wheel sensor ($156.75). I must have damaged it when I replaced the strut. The way to check the 'rear' sensors is to remove the back seat to gain access to each sensor plug (2 prongs). Unplug it and check for continuity. If there is no continuity then you have a bad sensor, or an unlikely break in one of the wires. I checked for a break in each wire but they were fine.

Often when a code is stored, even after fixing the original problem, the code remains in the computer. You can clear the code, if indeed the problem is fixed, by disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds. If the light reappears, then most likely the abs wiring is not fixed or there's another abs problem.
Easiest way is turn ignition switch on to run position do not start. Warning lights will light up on dash panel. There will be a orange light that comes on, if it has abs. Part of the self test diagnostics of abs system relates to this light coming on. If orange light goes on you have at least rear wheel abs. If you see wires coming out of the center of the back of each front wheel you have 4 wheel abs.

Its possible you damaged a rear wheel speed sensor when you did the strut job. If the wire was pulled tight when the strut was removed it could have pulled the copper strands in the wire from the sensor causing a open circuit. This is not uncommon. You need to have the ABS system scanned for codes and see which rear wheel sensor is effected. If you were to just clear the code it will just come back on. With the ABS light on, the ABS system is deactivated and the brake system works normally as a car without ABS.
