Hoping someone can point me in the direction of an easy fix.

I bought this 01 AmTran for a big bus spare, it needs some TLC but is a decent bus overall. Air brakes by the way.

I was chasing down a current draw issue, pulling one chassis breaker at a time. After the ABS breaker was removed and installed, the darn ABS light is on. It wasn't before, but it did work during the self-test on startup.

The modulators still do the click-click-click test at key-on.

Anything yall can think of that removing and reinstalling the breaker could have done, or is it just a coincidence?

By the way...current draw wasn't the ABS system, it had to do with the 8-ways.

Bendix or Wabco? It might just need a reset.

If it doesn't fit, FORCE it.
If it breaks, well, it needed replacing anyway.

You drive it yet? Resetting the box you have to drive it over 3mph and the lamp should go out.
