I'd like to know if the ABS light came on due to the procedure during a smog check, or is it an unrelatd issue. Right now the guy is running a diagnostic code check at the smog place. Thanks.

    Unless it's run on a four wheel dyno (2-wheel dyno in N.VA.) it's a normal response from the ABS system due to haveing 2 wheels spinning and 2 that 'appear' locked-up. Does Ca. still dyno all cars?
