After driving a few blocks my parking brake and abs light comes on and stays on every time you start it back up the next morning same thig the cooler the weather the longer it takes for them to come on
I had the same problem with my Ford Explorer it was caused by what's called a rasp valve for the anti-lock brake's.The valve is mounted on the frame(left side)just behind the tire.The valve look's like the letter T you'll see two or three brake line's going in and coming out of it.It was a dealer only part, which mean's you can get it at a Ford dealership only. Hope this was helpful good luck. Tim

your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction
Anti-Lock Warning Light (ABS) - If Equipped This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) described elsewhere in this manual. This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or comes on during driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required, however, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally provided that the BRAKE warning light is not on. If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore the benefit of Anti-Lock Brakes. 24 7 Locksmith Orchard Park NY 716 710 7400 Locksmith Orchard Park NY
First of all, the abs problem... NO do not start there, start with checking your brake fluid.. thats the number one cause for that light and no other lights on your dash to be on... if that is your problem fill it up and address the brake leak... brake fluid doesnt evaporate and your car doesnt use it up. if its low its going some where best way to do this is park on a clean surface or slide cardboard under your car pump your brakes 10 times and then examine the cardboard or move the car and look for wet spots that wernt there before or you could also have a friend lay on the ground a few feet back and look for drips while your pressing the brake pedal careful not to get any brake fluid in the eye it burns like no other... if you find a leak have it fixed if you dont it might still be a internal leak into the power brake booster and you should have someone look at it NORMALLY when you have a ABS problem with you car BOTH THE ABS LIGHT AND BRAKE LIGHT will be on not just one but the other awnsers could be correct too the brake indicator light does come on when the emergancy or parking brake is enabled try pulling the release and pull up on the parking brake pedal at the same time.. or if its a center parking brake push it all the way down with the button pushed
1) try to use the self diagnose. 2) place ignition swtuch in the start position, the lights coming on 3) engine starts, the brake light sould turn off inmediately. the ABS ligth will illuminate for aprox 6 seconds. 4) test drive the vehicle at speed above 20mph for a few minutes. during the test the both test lights should remain off, if any one of the warninign light utron, take note of the condition. 5) stop the vechicle using the braking pressure.both light should remain offf during the stopping procedure. 60 place the gear selector in to PARK, and observe the warning lights, they should both be off. God bless you
speed sensor or wheel bearing as well brake problem or burnt fuse a few things to check if worst comes to worast unplug battery and replug battery wait 15mins before plugging battery back then go for a ride if it lights up as soon as you start there is a power problem or sensor problem if you drive it and comes on latter then you have a sensor problem or brake problem
the traction control system works off of the abs system so there is a code in the abs module that needs to be pulled so you know were to start to check the system out.the service engine light is a different system all together and there is a code in the ecm that must be pulled so you know were to start to check to repair that system.you don`t say why you jumped to the conclusion that the gas cap set a code.the emergency brake light will come on if the e-brake is not all the way in the off position(something may be holding the lever up just enough to put the light on.the switch could be misadjusted and needs to e readjusted.
I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.
According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go
off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main
braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still
I would scan it for body codes-eg. ABS codes. Just Brakes wouldn't be my choice for any repairs. Find a good ASE Certified local shop. Discribe the slipping,stalling and shuttering. Sounds more like a trans issue.
Do you have a separate parking brake light and a "regular" brake light? Most vehicles only have one light, it illuminates when the parking brake is set, but it also illuminates when the system detects a failure anywhere in the brake system.
You could have a separate light for the anti-lock brake system (ABS ).
Your description of a light that is on till you apply the brakes is usually a sign of some sort of system brake failure. Start with brake fluid level, then inspect the brakes at each wheel, looking for a leak.
If nothing detected there, then you likely have something more serious. (Master brake cyclinder bad, possible something in the ABS brakes, etc.)
Others may disagree, but I would suggest not driving the vehicle (except to a mechanic) until this is corrected.
