Default ABS and TRACTION OFF lights

On a 1992 ssei would i have to disconnect the positive terminal to reset the ABS and the TRACTION OFF lights or could I just disconnect the negative.

Those would most likely be on due to a fault in the system. Typically a wheel speed sensor located on any of the 4 wheels. Merely resetting the computer will not clear this for long if a problem exists.

Unfortunately the dealer is typically the only place with the proper equipment to diagnose these issues.

Quit replacing parts from what you've 'heard'. That'* going to cost you countless dollars.

Make sure all 4 wheel speed sensors connectors are clean (free of corrosion) and attached. If you still have a problem, take it to the dealer and pay $80-$100 for a diagnosis. That'* the only way to know for sure.

Repairs to the system can run from $150 for a self-replacement of a hub/bearing assembly to fix a faulty WSS (don't ever use used), or over $1000 for dealer-replaced PMV or EBCM.

Or disable the system, remove the lights from the cluster, and live without it.
