    Hi Eric and Forum,

    Long time fan, first time poster here. My mother has a 2000 Acura RL. Recently we did some maintenance on it to clear a check engine light for a leaky gas cap (small evap. leak). Due to a software bug on this generation of RLs, the ABS/VSA systems started throwing bogus codes (9-7, 9-8) after we cleared the codes in memory. Now, I’ve tried the manual VSA reset procedure, but the lights keep coming back on. Sometimes the lights go out after driving for a bit, but randomly come back on later. A rescan of the system using my obd2 reader shows codes for both front ABS/Speed sensors. I’m not sure if these are bogus codes or not at this point. I don’t want to throw money at new parts if these are false alarms. Any experienced suggestions would be very helpful. Let me know if more information is required. Vehicle mileage is 172k. No VSA/ABS issues until the CEL was cleared using scanner.
