1999 Cobra abs and trac light help?

I have a 99 cobra and since I've bought it in 2011 the abs light and trac control light has been on. The trac light stays lit on off and pushing the button I don't think does anything :/ when I bought it the car had the gears changed and it had exhaust put on before me. Does anyone know if exhaust or gears will cause either the abs or trac light to stay on?

If they replaced the gears they prolly messed something up or something with the abs is out. If you put a scan tool brand code reader on it they have a abs code reader built in. And that can tell you whats up. I have the same prob but i turned the trac off in my tune so

What about the sct tuner? I bought one from am muscle and it helps a lot. I see engine light checker but nothing else. Also I think they did not put eliminators on when they installed but the only two codes are one from tuner and other from exhaust I think. Ill list codes tommorow but prob have to get a dealer to check abs light

Same exact thing happened to my mustang before I bought it. Turned out to be a bad ABS module

Just go to advance auto they have a free one you can use. Im 90% sure that the scan tool brand they have reads abs. Thatll save you alot of money.

It shouldnt affect driving. If the module is still good it should still control up to the point that has a fault.

Thanks. Didn't know what it does. I've drove like it with it for two years and never really bothered me. I'm about to replace my rock hard clutch that takes a lot to push down and I'm afraid ill be learning how to drive stick again with a clutch so light. Lol

You wont really get away from a heavy clutch. Ive tried four different clutches and pressure plates. Cable clutches are so heavy. The easiest ive found so far is a custom 8 pluck kevlar clutch with a spec stage 2 pressure plate. But still has alot of pressure.

V6s have smaller flywheels and clutches. Cobras and gt's have bigger everything just how it is.
