ABS/Hill Descent Fault Messages

I had a Carli Suspenion leveling kit put on yesterday...put some 35x12.50s on....truck looks great...and I did not have any messages on the truck yesterday...HOWEVER, this morning I noticed the ABS light and Hill descent light came on. A hill descent Fault message and Service Autotrac message came up on the screen.....what the heck is this all about and has anyone else experienced this?

The leveling kit and tires shouldn't be causing the fault to come on. Sounds like there may be other issues.

the installation may have knocked a wheel speed sensor loose?

AH HA!!! I figured it out....the plug was disconnected....the slight height changed caused the wires to bind and when I hit a bump it must have put enough pressure on it to cause the plug to pull apart....I fixed that....thank GOD

I am getting the same warning message as you had. Where is the plug located that you fixed, I want to check that before going to the dealer?

I never found a plug. But did take it in and they replaced a wheel speed sensor and that fixed my problem.
