That's when the Catch 22 kicks in as if I install the fuses then I cannot drive it. I'm thinking of trying this with fuse 55 back but the large fuse 63 (50A) still out and see what happens.
No brake work performed. Was driving along minding my own business when out of the blue it threw the lights.
I'm still hoping it is simple like a sensor.

I would definitely try one fuse at a time.

Also if you put the fuses in and the trifecta isn't on until you move that gives you some additional feedback.

I've heard of the brake switch on the pedal wreaking havoc

I ordered a BP Switch just in case when I read posts about it. (Crowz?) All the wheel sensors and the switch should arrive today/tomorrow. I'll be scheduling the appointment to take her in later now I know I can drive rather than flatbed.
I plan on adding the Fuse 55 back to see what difference it makes and also to try and test the sensors.
Again, thanks to all for any and all inputs. Too much knowledge is never a problem and the boards are wonderful fonts of knowledge.

Might want to order new sensor sockets as well; as they often self destruct getting the connection apart.

Spray all the sensors and sockets with a good penatrant like liquid wrench the day before you try to remove them. I've broken a couple socket cap bolts that hold them in.
