    Again, that will leave him exactly where he is now, codes and warning lights.

    Removing the ABS Fuse will remove the error codes from the DIC. Only the warning lights on the dash will show. I had this exact same problem not long ago.

    OP which type of suspension does your CTS have? I ordered a replacement EBCM from a salvage yard and they originally sent me one for the VIN with the FE2 suspension. My CTS has the FE1 and so they sent me another one with the correct VIN for my vehicle. I still have the other EBCM and if you like I would be willing to sell it to you for cheap.

    The only time I've had an ABS fault it was due to a wire break that was intermittent. Sometimes ABS would work, sometimes it wouldn't (and then the light would come on). Quite annoying when you're at a road course for the weekend!

    Other than that sort of scenario, though, you're right - if there's a fault, the system is already disabled. Pulling the fuse wouldn't make it any more disabled than it already is, and wouldn't get rid of the light in the instrument cluster.
