Since last I saw you and the car did you try what I said would be the first and cheapest thing to try, clean the rear wheel sensors, that may be all it is. Keep in mind that lots of other codes possible for the system that is just one of the more common ones. When the lights are on those systems are off line and normal brakes is all you will have, when the lights go off the system does not see a fault and it will act as normal, without checking the codes this type of on and off symptom may just be that the sensors are dirty, it does not hurt to clean them anyway as they will be dirty. As you replaced the tires with the correct size they will not be an issue.

I have been having this problem also and several people responded in an earlier post. So far I have not been able to fix the problem myself and I have not been willing to throw any money at it yet. My dealership said it is most likely a sensor that is bad or going bad. I'm going to be looking into trying to fix it soon. But if this is the biggest bug i have, i really can't complain too much <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Hah, that's funny. I just realized I had posted the same prob without seeing this one. I think ours is on for good, and thus is definitely a failed sensor.
