If you tap the light with a ball-peen hammer it will go off. Start with a light tap and increase the force with each tap. It will eventually go off.

SOURCE: Abs/Brake Light ON, although new brakes, ABS still works

I would suspect a speed sensor.

SOURCE: ABS brake light comes on.

No there is no reset, sounds like you have a bad ABS sensor on one of the wheels. Only way to tell is to get it to a brake shop or dealer to check it. Good luck dont forget to rate.

I replaced main brake line on driver side on 2000 1500 Dodge Ram pick up blead all brakes at each caliper no air present. Driven around six hour but abs and brake light still on.


If there is an ABS issue it will turn on the red brake light as well. Were these lights on before the repair? You can try disconnecting the battery to see if the ABS resets. If the lights come back on you will have to have a scan test performed on the ABS system to isolate the problem

What could be the problem when I aply brakes pedal gets real hard where car wont stop when braking coming to a stop brk. light and abs lights on


Hey Joes, 1 problem at a time ,if brake light is coming on that is in the proportion valve ,did you have to push reset button to make light go out,? if the ABS lite is coming on what you can do to check and see if that is the problem is unplug it and try brakes ,it will deactivate ABS and give you normal braking and ABS light will be on ,see if symptyms change , also did you reset ABS sensors to the tone wheel when you replaced rotors ? I don't know what you have and I have seen some cars need a importaint reset procedure for abs to work properly. good luck I hope I gave you some good things to look at that help you.

Replaced brakes on 1995 Ford Taurus and now ABS light is on and ABS is disabled


The ABS light only comes on because of a fault. You need the ABS control module scanned for the code that set when the light comes on. There is no RESET

How to reset abs light in a subaru forester


The ABS light on your vehicle will self-reset, once the condition causing the light to illuminate is rectified.
Reasons for the ABS light coming on are:
  1. Worn brake pads;
  2. Worn calipers (beyond tolerance);
  3. Defective ABS unit;
  4. Low brake fluid level;
  5. Defective master cylinder;
  6. Brake fluid leak.
It is important that whatever condition is causing the ABS light to illuminate is corrected as soon as possible, as it indicates a potential hazardous condition exists with your vehicle.

Changed rear pads. Brake indicator on dash is still blinking and chiming. How do you reset


Is it the "brake"repair light blinking & chiming?? Or is it the "ABS" brake light blinking/chiming. Brake light should be red, ABS amber

ABS and service light reset after brake change


the ABS light resets itself every time the key is turned off and on, it is self testing and will only turn the light on when there is a problem in the ABS system, worn out brakes don't cause the ABS to come on, if the light is on the system has a fault present and it must be tested with a factory system scanner to determine the source of the fault or at least the area that is causing the problem, that can be one of the four wheeel speed sensors, a defective ABS hydraulic control unit and sop on.

How to reset the ABS light on a 1994 cavalier? I replaced the brake caliper on the rt front wheel, and ended up with the ABS light on.


i think you have metal shavings on the abs wheel sensor. did you go metal to metal on the brakes? new caliper right? disconect the battery for 10 mins that should do it. first clean that sensor off it might reset itself good luck
