Just replaced the ABS pump and everything after inspection is in good order. How does one remove the ABS, Yellow Triangle , snd the Emergency brake light from the dashboard.? It is so annoying to drive around when your dashboard looks like a Christmas tree. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Happy Motoring

I would suspect there's still some error codes tripping the system. From what I have seen, the triangle only lights up when there is an issue and goes away when the fault is cleared.
Does your scanner show any codes, past or present?

These lights turn themselves off if the car passes the system self test that occurs around 9 mph.

Are your reluctor rings on the rear wheels in good shape? Corroded rings will cause the system to fail.

You should be able to get a working STAR machine from eBay for a relatively inexpensive price. It's an incredibly valuable tool for smart diagnosis. Think of it like the VCDS system you can get to diagnose Volkswagens. :)

Checked Ebay- pricing around $500-$700 for a star machine
Oof! There was a period maybe last year or so you could get one for $300. Maybe they're more in demand lately considering smart's pulling out of the USA. :O
