I'm still in the "research" stage... trying to find the canonical DSC/ABS CEL brake troubleshooting thread.

In summary, after reading some of the many threads...

Is this the DSC/ABS/Brake warning indicator diagnostic procedure?
- Determine what is being displayed to me (I'm in this stage)
- Understand how the system works (sensors tied to modules tied to lamps)
- Locate the sensors (4?) and associated control modules (2?)
- Read the ABS CEL OBDII error codes with the Carsoft 6.5.1 hardware
- Reset the ASC/ABS/Brake warning indicators & test the car
... If the problem re-occurs ...
- Determine if the problem is in the sensors, and if so, which one(s)
- Determine if the problem is in the modules, and, if so which one(s)
- If modules, decide whether to fix the module & reprogram or buy new
- Install new (or fixed) sensors or modules & test the system again

Is that the basic diagnostic procedure for DSC/ASC/ABS CEL warnings?
