Abs fault lights up on dash and feels like brakes are dragging constant

I had a 96 tahoe and my abs light was on and my right front brake was dragging, i found that it was the abs speed sensor that was causing the problem. Once i replaced it abs light went out and no more drag. I know there's a big year diffrence here, i dont think the way this all works has changed much. Hope this helps.

Hi there, my car is 2002 fiat punto. when i hit the brake, there is a light sign coming on the dash board, which is a shape of light ball with a exclamatory mark in the middle, just wonder what problem is...

As per the manual this problem of Red circle with exclamation mark on car dash board belongs to problem in brake system.this is the indication to check the brake system. In the Fiat punto cars service manual it says as follows:-- Malfunction of the brake system.
Check break fluid, if that's not the problem
visit the dealer.
When it come up together with ABS light the ABS system needs to be checked.
--------------- Most probably this problem is due to low brake fluid.BUT if the problem is same after filling the brake fluid then the brake system wiring needs to be checked.its wiring's are getting short somewhere. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

"STOP" something about a brake error and to check service manual

It is likely to be a problem with the ABS system and you should plug a diagnostic computer in and interrogate the ABS controller for the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) that is signalling your brake warning lamp and dash message screen. Just for the fun of it, check to make sure the brake fluid is at the proper level first though.
