is this possible?

Hi All,

I was having some trouble for the last few days about the ABS light on and the Tacho not working. I am so suprised that, the problem has been resolved by me changing tires?!!! this does not make sense to me??

My 2 left tire where real bad, the metal was out!! it needed an alignment BIG time, anyways, I went ahead and got the tires changed and BOOM, the ABS light went off and the Tacho started working??? Any link??

Very possible, due to wheel speed variation being read by the ABS sensors.

Thanks for your message

Makes sense!!

Now one last problem I have is that the A/C does not blow cold air, as a matter of fact, even when I put it on heater, it does not blow hot air?

What I did this weekend was, I bought me some R12 to 134 retrofit conversion from Autozone, drained the R12 and when I came to put the new valves, they would not it?!!!

So, now I have a system with no freon at all, so I cant even check anything.

Any suggestions on the conversions kit or other comments??

Thanks alot
