  • ABS light - have trouble code pulled to know which part of the system to check
  • Parking Brake light - check fluid level in master cylinder reservoir. Top up to max line. Inspect pads/shoes for wear.
  • A/C switches to defrost on accel - vacuum leak in A/C system. Check plastic vacuum lines on passenger side of engine and vacuum reservoir ball inside the passenger side front fender. Could also be a vacuum leak in the Pulse Vacuum Hublock system which shares the A/C vacuum supply.
