Default traction control flashes with lowered suspension

Since lowering car and running 19s I've been having traction control go off when cornering and mainly just in the mornings when cold??? Any input thanks

I have the same problem. I think it has something to do with recalibrating the abs sensors.

You damaged the abs sensor when you installed the suspension. It's that wire that goes on the front spindles. You probably stretched it

I know of the abs sensor. I've done plenty of suspensions before. Also I don't think I damaged it because the abs/traction control lights never come on, except usually in the morning when its cold and when I'm making slow sharp turns?? I don't get it

Resurrecting an old thread. I have a 98 GS400 lowered on springs. Last night was pretty cold while I was heading to class and the abs light came on. I got in the car to leave turned on my car no abs light. Backed out and put the car in drive and the traction light came flashed (could hear the traction control engaging) and than my abs light came on and buzz noise(ABS). Proceeded to drive home and nothing irregular occured. Today I drove to work fine no issues but abs light still on.
