Did you buy the car like that or they just come on recently or wassup?

I removed my gauge cluster to change a bulb in there, when i hooked it back up
the air bag light was on after.. I needed to have the Code cleared.

yep... wheel sensor is most likely the culprit.

If the ABS ASC+T computer can not determine the speed that all 4 wheels are spinning at, it is unable to successfuly apply ABS, or traction control.
