Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris

Vitz abs light

I have a 2005 vitz (Yaris) which i just bought in a used condition. As preventive maintenance, I had the front wheel bearings checked / changed, and subsequently discovered an induced problem. The ABS light alongwith the handbrake light stays ON, as well as the speedometer is not working. I know that this has to do with the sensors removed and installed in each wheel hub, however, my attempt to reset these lights at one autostore with a scanner has failed. Can anyone help me with this problem, and how to get the speedo functioning again.

    I've got the same problem with the emergency break and the abs light. But it's not only the light, the abs does not work at all.
    It's sucks, I just bought the car 6 months ago and was very happy with it until now. The other problem is , its 11/2 year old and have 99120 km in it, so have to act fast before run out of warranty.

    checkout the magnetic sensor rings fixed to the inner side of each front wheel bearing. If u replaced the bearings, the new bearings probably dont have this ring, if not, perhaps the ring has malfunctioned. ask you workshop to remove bearings and check the sensor rings

    Hey hey.. all you despondent guys and gals....cheers... not only i had the problem fixed, i also learnt a few new tricks along the way. I still think yaris / vitz is the best small car and love it in my hands. Indeed it were the bearings i had changed, the new bearings did not have the sensor rings.. so i had the workshop open up the bearings and install the sensors from the old bearings... all the malfunctions, including speedometer, both brake lights (ABS and Park Brake) have gone off... Contrary to what some believe, speedometer also depends on these sensors in some way, and has started functioning.

    I did not have the bearing or anything replaced, these warning lights just came on for no reson after the first snowy day and stayed on. I have not done any repair so far.

    Bought it last summer with 90 000Km on it, now it has 100 000Km on it, so warranty is far gone.



    Thanks

    The speedometer issue is not related to the ABS light being on.



    If you had the front wheel bearings changed, the sensors that fit in the front hubs may either not be adjusted properly, the wires may be compromised, or some related issue like that. If there is any open in the wiring, you will not be able to reset the ABS light to "off". It will come right back on until the issue(s) is/are resolved. Since you have access to a scan tool, get the vehicle rescanned & report back the ABS code(s) found; then we can proceed with more accurate diagnosis/solutions

The most likely cause is that the wheel speed sensor wire got stretched during disassembly, and needs to be replaced not. If the wires arent disconnected from the hub, or strut during disassembly, they get pulled and yanked and the wires inside stretch to far, but you cant see it because the outside looks ok. Happens all the time.

What is toyota vitz scp 10 p0500 fault


"Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction". That may be either related to the speedometer or related to the ABS, if your Yaris is equipped with ABS. It indicates that the car THINKS that it should be able to sense how fast the wheels are turning when you're in motion, but it's getting a strange signal from the sensor.

Since this is a Yaris with front-wheel drive, your speed sensors will be somewhere between the transaxle and the front wheels, probably one on each side. Look for some sort of small device mounted next to the axle shafts or next to the brakes - that device should have wiring connected to it. Check the little electrical connector, make sure it's plugged together correctly. The sensor itself may have failed, though, so be prepared to replace one or the other. if replacing one doesn't solve the problem, put the original one back and use the new one to replace the sensor on the other side of the car.

Abs light


I'm not 100% positive but i think the ABS exciter is built in the wheel bearing on this model. If it is it is entirely possible that the wheel bearing was installed backwards.

Abs activates just before truck stops (2005 chevy silverado) wheels not skidding, assuming a wheel sensor is bad, how do find out which one, or is the problem in the abs computer, abs light does not come...


This is a condition known as over active ABS. GM has a technical service bulletin for this. Basically what it say is to remove the front wheel speed sensors from the hubs, clean the mating surface between the sensor and the hub, apply some di-electric grease over the cleaned area, and reinstall the sensor.

You can try this on the front sensors and see if the problem goes away. I will warn you that you need to be very careful removing the sensor from the hub as they can break off. If it breaks off in the hub you will need to replace the hub and bearing.

You can also check to see if one of the front wheel bearings is loose. with the tire off the ground grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull. if the wheel moves and you can see the rotor moving also than the wheel bearing may be sloppy enough for internal exciter ring to get an excessive gap from the abs sensor.

The easiest thing to do is look at wheel speed data on a higher end scan tool. When the symptom happens you will see the wheel speed drop out. Whatever wheel drops out is the wheel that needs to be checked.

Hope that helps.

Abs light come on and 4wd light flashes


check your front wheel bearings by jacking up the front end of your vehicle and trying to wiggle the tire at the top and bottom of the tire. If the tire seems to be jiggling a little bit at the hub; not the suspension or steering, your wheel bearing needs to be replaced. If it gets really bad you can actually see the wheel inverted or the top of the tire leaning towards the inside from the front of the vehicle.

when your wheel bearings go the sensor in the bearing goes off and the abs light comes on.

Good Luck

Toyota Vitz 2003: (ABS and HandBrake warning light constantly on)


this is a common first sign of your antilock brake computer failing. You will most likely never feel a difference in your car but there is a slight chance all your safety features will not operate properly in a collision.

Vitz 2005 ABS light and Speedo


as a toyota technician, its probably the wrong fitted of the ring, once you replace the bearing they will removed the ring and in that ring there is a small hole that the sensor goes in. speedometer will not work not work if there is a malfunction in abs and it is speedometer,brake warning light are integrated with abs ecu.
