    Re: Warning lights

    First pull the DTC codes and post them with their definitions
    Check how to in the sticky on this forum.

    It could be anything from bad wheel speed sensor to ABS module etc.

    Go to the top of the FWD Deville/Fleetwood page, and read the "sticky" thread on how to pull codes. List any codes you find, AND THEIR DEFINITIONS, here (there's a link within the sticky with code definitions).

    It's likely a failed wheel bearing/hub assembly.

    Re: Warning lights

    please help us help you -
    the codes are useless without the DEFINITIONS -
    and we can't memorize them all -

    Is it C1214, or C1224?

    C1214 - System Relay Contact or Coil Circuit Open


    C1224 - Right Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0

    C1248 - EBCM Turned the Red Brake Warning Indicator On

    C1214 refers to a relay internal to the EBTCM. You can try inspecting/cleaning the EBTCM connector contacts (follow the steel brake lines from the master cylinder, to the EBTCM. Disconnect, inspect pins/wiring, clean, reconnect securely. Check the ground as well). But the code usually means a bad EBTCM.
