Default Just lowered my 07 tahoe, and ABS and Traction control light is on! Help?

Hi guys!
I just had a guy install a ground force lowering kit for me, part # G379856, or 9856. (Depending on where you search.)

The package came with:
2 front spindles.
2 rear shocks
2 rear coils
and rubber bump stops.

He installed it and all of a sudden the lights came on. What should I do? Take it to a dealer? Or is there some way to reset this?

any help is appreciated.
thanks!

Have you checked for loose, unplugged or broken wires in the areas he worked?

hey, thanks for the reply. yes i did. then i even-- reluctantly took it to the dealer. they didnt have time to officially look at it, but the service advisor crawled under and checked it out too and couldnt find anything.
i guess im just going to take it in tomorrow and let them see what they can find. i was hesitant on doing that since dealers are always quick to say "well its gonna cost $XXX to fix the damage caused by the mods you did to your vehicle." will update once i get an answer.

Hey,
just wanted to update and thank jwruss
Just got it back from the dealer and they found a torn wire going to the abs sensor. apparently if there is ANY fault in the abs, or traction control- both fault light come on because they work together..
anyway its good to go.

Yeah I was about to suggest the wheel speed sensor wire.... Glad you got it fixed.
Lowering kits are tricky. Mine left me with a brake problem that began several days after lowering. It had be baffled, but thanks to shawnvw on the forum, I replaced the flexible brake hose and its fine.

Thanks for thanking who gave you advice. Its always nice to let them know that they were spot-on.
