Prolly should have fault codes read. My GSA needs a new ABS pump. $2200.00jers99lt said:A cold weather weakened battery could be the cause of the ABS throwing a fault. When the battery warms it could become strong enough for the ABS to play nice again.
Just a guess on my part since I believe that's also happening to my ABS and that my battery needs replacing. That's what my mechanic thinks, anyway.

Yes. The 05 and up will give you a good worn pad indication if the level in the reservoirs was set when the pistons were fully retracted. The old ones (2001-2004) you had to add fluid often as the pads wore because they were more sensitive to the fluid level. Thus they were not a good indicator.GlennM86 said:John, don't worn our rear brake pads cause the fluid level to drop a little bit, thereby causing the lights to flash?
I plan to replace the rear pads before buying a new battery for now.
