I installed pacemakers recently, and ever since as soon as i start driving my traction control light turns on and will not turn off, i loose traction and DSC, also within the first 5 seconds of driving for example reversing out of drive way the abs kicks in for a second or two when applying any amount of braking force.

Also the other night i was squatting my car at the lights and as soon as a bit of wheel spin happened my abs kicked in and made my car launch forward.

Need help!

I have a BF MKII Fairmont Ghia, 2.5" xforce, High Flow Cat, Pacemaker comp extractors, BPR Generic Tune 98, SSL King Springs all round.

Try removing the generic tune, and see if that has anything to do with it. If not, scan tool?

I'll give that a shot tomorrow.
The scan tool doesn't recognize any errors.
Would a diagnostics run for the first minute show any potential faults if I check it on the computer?

I put the stock tune back in, but there was no change in result, one thing i find odd is while the abs kicks in, the light doesn't flicker...

I had the exact same issues on my AU. I can only imagine its related to one of the wheel sensors being faulty or dirty.

im not sure what the sensors looks like or how to get to all of them, is there a post you know about checking them?
should i be gentle when cleaning them or are they pretty sturdy?
had it like this for 2 weeks now, really starting to annoy me.
