    The brake light stays on on my 90 Sub. It had ABS but with the new axles installed the tone ring is gone. I also replaced the MC with a 1-ton unit from my 88 V30 and had to make new lines since the old ones didn't fit. The ABS computer got in the way of the new line routing so I removed it as well. Any idea of how to get the light to go of but still have it work in the aspect of when you lose a brake line??

    Im pretty sure there isnt a tone ring in the axle, rather it picks up the signal off the tcase I believe...
