ABS Fault

I just had an SMI Air Force One installed. When I picked up the MH, a Fleetwood Discovery 40 G on a spartan chassis, I was starting her up and noticed the dash readout said "ABS Fault" for a couple of seconds and then went out. The ABS warning yellow/red/or orange warning light never came on. This message comes on only some of the times I start it, but not every time, and always goes off after a couple of seconds. I never noticed it before, but it could have been there and not noticed it. The tech didn't think it was related to the AFO install (even they had to cut into the air lines to install it) and wasn't concerned as it is not followed by the abs warning light coming on. I'm hoping it is nothing, but am curious if anybody else has this happen or might know why it comes on .

ALL indicator lights should come on when starting,, The ABS light may remain on for a bit epically if you are in the very good habit of standing on the brakes during starting... Alas, one of the ABS sensors is the brake light switch.

Also, since it's looking for 12 VDC (Well battery voltage) across the switch, if you have issues down-line from the brake light switch (Burned out bulbs, broken wire, bad ground) it may fault.

Home is where I park it!
