    ABS & Brake light's on

    News Flash Update !!!!!!!! The problem's solved. I had a severely broken dash and had it replace with an O/E in near perfect condition. I had it put in and somewhere along that line the lights are now out. They still work mind you, but the problem is solved. Thanks.

    Oil pressure woes

    Oil pressure woes

    Just watched my oil pressure gauge today. At idle it's at 40psi ( according to the gauge ). Drops to 20psi running at 65mph. Any suggestions as to the issues ? Btw, it comes back up after returned to idle.

    ABS & Brake light's on

    Brakes didn't fall out. However!!!!!! # 1 , I mentioned it to a guy that replaced the bed for me . He said probably something with the rear brakes that that's what the ABS' were controlling, # 2, When I had the frontend aligned the mechanic took it for a ride and said it stepped on the brakes...
