ABS Rough Road Line Low Fault

Do 97's have ABS? I'd get your brakes checked, but you could clear it and see if it comes back. You might have triggered it accidental driving on a washboard road or something?

Just reset it using the reader. It happens to me occasionally. You can try to clean/re-seat the sensor but usually erasing the codes makes it go away. From what I understand it's a bull sheeeot sensor that shouldn't really be used on D90s because of the lack of ABS. There are a number of posts about that code on this forum.

I reset mine about a month ago and I haven't seen it return since.

Reset. If it comes back search as there are a few common things that cause it.

THe 97s have the sensor for the ABS if that doesn't clear it you may need to push the button on the little box in the tunnel. a real pain to get to. I had a shop that had to do this to my truck way back before I knew what to do, charged me like $75 to push a button.
