1997 - 2004 Corvette: GM TechLink: Stainless Steel Brake Lines


From GM TechLink, July 2004:

Owners of some Corvettes have experienced Service ABS, Service Active Handling and Service Traction Control messages. Wheel speed sensor codes may be set. This condition may be caused by replacing the OEM rubber brake hoses with aftermarket stainless steel brake hoses.

It is believed that the metal in the brake lines conducts static electricity, causing confusion in the wheel speed sensors.

The brake hoses must be returned to original rubber ones before the case can be investigated. This is a customer-pay expense.
