ABS fault code

Quick question: My 2000LT sat idle from 7/14 to 7/30 while I was on vacation. She would have liked to come along, but under the circumstances the car was the better choice.

No fault codes prior to the 14th. Put the Odessy charger on last night just to make sure the battery was full. It was, but left it on all night
This morning when started - ABS wig wag flashing lights.

Plugged in the GS911 after getting home from work - "front wheel sensor" fault was present. Cleared that and no faults since.

Any thoughts on why this code when the bike was not used, and only sitting?

Re: ABS fault code

That is hard to say. As long as it does not return I would not even concern myself with it. May have been a dirty trick by the designers for people that leave thier motorcycles at home instead of riding them.

Re: ABS fault code

Mine was setting the front ABS code when my left fork seal was leaking and dripping fluid on everything. I just presumed that was the indirect cause with all the dirt clinging to the oil. Hasn't done it since I fixed the seal, but I did adjust the gap at that time as well.
