I am running a bigger radius tire on the back than the front. Will that trigger the and light?

It's possible they tore one of your abs wires.. Accidentally like most dumbass tire guys do..

I've seen it happen ,
Only way to find out is to take off each wheel and check the wire behinde hub

I did some reading. Having a bigger diameter on the back throws the abs code.

It will throw off your ABS which technically should be altered for every tire/wheel change made (reason race cars don't use ABS) It will sense that your front and rear tires are rotating at different speeds (which is fundamental for ABS function). It shouldn't strongly effect braking, worst case you are leaving some grip on the table under perfect storm conditions ( you won't under perform from a factory ABS perspective.) It's like getting a CAI and not retuning... kinda

I don't think so. At least my logic would say no, but ABS is complicated.

Your light may not even be from tires at all. The ABS system requires high voltage. So if your alternator or any part of your electrical system is starting to ware out one of the first things to light up would be ABS (due to low voltage)
Just a thought about something you want to test.

Also keep an eye on your battery light, and if you have subs in your car, see if your subs shut off at the same as your ABS light comes on.

Just a thought. Hope it helps!

No problem. A local advanced auto parts can check your battery for free.
