cooked brake fluid more than likely. Look for a leak and be careful because brakefluid will take your paint off really quick. As far as the pop...it could have been anything but worst case scenario you have a short in the wiring harness or somewhere going to the harness. Check it out man you dont wanna fry your ECU.

just clean it off with wheel cleaner or something. You might have to scrub a little with a sponge or something. Just use your bodyboard

shes playing a trick on me i swear it, i go around the block do get the light to come on with the clicking, finally got it, the light came on and off whenever i hit the brakes, pull up to my house, it goes away no clicking. i havnt seen any leaks though.

into further investigation, oil on rims is just oil how it got there is a mystery.
break pads are fine, squeeking investigation still underway. dimming lights/clicking, possible alternator,battery or abs motor relay... any thoughts i have found a site that sells the abs motor relay yet...
