Jim is this on KFR or the other 480 you have?

If its on KFR,Id recommend changing the drivers side front sensor.I discovered that wiggling it or unplugging and pluggin it back in seems to right it for a while.Was on the list of things to do to her.I put new fluid in all round which by the way is DOT 5.1 so dont mix em! If you need an ABS pump I have a spare for that year car.
