There may be a connection problem at your battery, I had my ABS light come on and there was no communication with the diag port, I retightned the smaller wires going to the positive battery terminal ( make sure you have your radio code as this may cause it to go into lock mode) after doing this my ABS light hasent came back on

How to reset brake lite on my 2005 X type jaguar?


which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

My Toyota Harrier 2003 Premium L ABS and Handbrake indicator light is on sometimes but my mechanic has check on the brake pad, brake fluid and others everything seem to be in order but just don't...


Could it be a broken abs speed sensor wire to one of the wheels . And for the hand brake sometimes on vehicles with the handbrake between the seats some junk will get in between the brake lever and the down position causing the light to intermittently go on or could be a switch or wire thing again .

You have to pull your handbrake with ease with down the gear that will not loose your traction control and if u have abs and end than u can apply panic brakes

ABS light on, STOP warning on, Handbrake light on, bleeping sound


Get a second opinion as you are dealing with brakes here.
Things to get check/get checked
Brake fluid does it need topped up.
Fuses covering these systems are there any blown.
Brake pads are they worn or are the sensors damaged.
ABS sensors are they damaged.
Handbrake cable to front wheels worn or stretched.
Handbrake sensor faulty.
Again if it's brakes get these things checked out sounds like a faulty abs sensor but best get the rest checked to be on the safe side.
Hope this helps

ABS, ASC, Handbrake, Airbag lights lit on dash, speedometer now working and fuel gauge playing silly beggars too


The abs,Asc,Handbrake all this is related to most likely a sensor that has gone out is not functioning properly. I would not drive this myself, especially with the air bag light on as if computer is throwing these signals out, you do not want to take the chance of air bag accidentally going off. Most this I am sure can be fixed at dealer. They will hook up there fancy equipment diagnostic machine, and reset the computer. Worst case is there might be a sensor that has to be replaced. This could be also a short in wire harness. Bottom line take it in and have them hook up to machine. This will pin point problem, because next step would be car could automatically shut down.

Handbrake & traction lights on when applied brakes


All your doing is applying the brake pedal

That is the only computer input,so maybe the
switch is loose or bad- next to the brake pedal

I would scan for computer data & codes- especially
the body & abs braking system

Abs and tracs light is on, is it wheel sensor? where is it located? also the handbrake wont work is it a do it yourself job?


Yes, there is a very good chance that your ABS and TRAC lights are coming on because of a defective wheel speed sensor. There are also many other things that can cause that including a failed traction control module or ABS hydraulic control unit.
Diagnosing the exact cause of the problem is not really a DIY job. You will have to access the computer data and retrieve the fault codes from the ABS System. Once the codes are collected, the problem must be diagnosed according to the manufacturer's troubleshooting charts for each code.
Changing a defective part might be a candidate for a DIY project, but that depends a lot on what is actually causing your problem. Sometimes these things are fixed by reprogramming the computer - no hard parts actually get replaced in these cases.
Even if it is a wheel speed sensor, there are sensors at each wheel on most cars. (You didn't mention MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE SIZE, TRANSMISSION TYPE, Etc.) In this scenario, you will have to access the computer data just to find out which one it is.

The hand brake thing could be anything from a broken cable to a simple adjustment. Again, the CAUSE must be diagnosed.

MY VAN HESITATES DURING ACCELERATION AND SPEEDO DROPS TO ZERO THEN ABS LIGHT COMES ON


There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

Flashing hand brake light is on give,s 3 beeps when pulling off plus abs light is on i think left hand front abs sensor is gone would this cause the handbrake light to flash all fluid levels are spot on ....


Yes. Both lights usually come on when there is an ABS problem detected whereas the brake light will usaully only come on by itself with the hand brake or low fluid.
