ABS and Traction Control lights on on the dash.

I have tried disconnecting the Battery.

What to do?

I'd start by seeing what codes are causing the lights to be on.

The majority of the time, the front hubs are the cause. But codes is all you can do at this point because anything else will be a shot in the dark.

Hopefully yours is just a blown fuse - but there would be the concern as to why.

I have at least one ABS sensor that's bad. It was causing the ABS to activate when going slow. It was a safety concern since the ABS would activate when attempting to stop at a stop sign going down a slight decline. For now I pulled the 60A fuse in the compartment under the hood to disable the ABS. That of course caused the ABS and Brake lights to illuminate on the dash.

Don't know if your 2008 also has 2 fuses like my 2002 to check. The second one is in the compartment by the driver's side under the dashboard. The 'fuse puller' included in the fuse compartment by the engine isn't useful IMO.

In your other thread, you said you pulled the ABS fuse. Of course, the lights are going to be on.
