Recently bought a 1996 Bucik Riveria.
I believe it was in a wreck at one time. The previous owner had a brake job
done on it just before I bought it.
The ABS/Traction Control light stayed on at that time. A scan say's it has a
code 21 in the system.
I am not really interested in fixing this stuff as it isn't that important
to me, but the lights on the dash are bothersome.
Can I pull some fuse or fues somewhere so the light on the dash wont light
and not interfere with a "service engine light" coming on?
Code 21 means "Right front wheel speed sensor circuit - open or shorted".
The ABS light appears to be on the Chimes fuse. If you pull that, you will
kill the chimes and whatever other parts of the instrument cluster will also

Forgot to mention that that there is a harness disconnected on the drivers
side engine compartment near the traction control box. It has a huge round
connector with what might be 15-20 wires??? The place that did the brake job
indicated a short and suggested to start at some module that costs $600 from
the dealer. This brake job was done over a year ago so cant get any more
info from who done the job.
For now I have fashioned some black elecrtical tape over the lights that
stay on, LOL. Thanks
Yes I know that would make the ABS/Traction light stay on, but if a brake
man could not find the cause of the short, (if there is one) and indicated
on the repair sheet that someone should start with replacing some $600
module, I can't argue with that.
Like I said, not really looking for a fix, just a way to get the lights off
without causing an effect of something else.
