Check brake fluid level first and foremost- top off as necessary.

1. Start with checking if sensor was reconnected - sometimes they will not seat properly. - were the sensor wires damaged during/after install.

2. Now in all VAG products I have owned with ABS the manual states that you need to perform a raod teat with at least 1 ABS event i.e. go on a gravel road or grassy area or if its icy/snowy just hit the breaks. This should set the ABS for normal operation.

The fact that you have an ABS light on tells me that you have a connector/sensor problem.

Hope this helps.

I keep getting abs code C0236 and the abs light stays on.What is the most common solution to this problem


I recently replaced all the brakes on my 2002 Chevy S10 P/U Truck & both the ABS Light & the Brake Lights periodically come on. This was happening even before I replaced the brake pads & shoes. I heard that there may be some sequence of steps I can preform in order to solve this problem. Would you please help me?

Just replaced rear pads now it feels like i have air in the line, the pedal goes about 3/4 of the way down. i used a tool to turn the caliper piston in until it seated then put the pads on. now the abs...


that is how you contract the caliper on the Audi/VW rear brakes. I would check the brake fluid, I would also recheck the back brake lines as it is/was a bear to replace the rear brake pads. Hope this helped Tim

The ABS light stays lit on my 2000 Subaru Forester. I have replaced front disc pads and rear shoes (drum brakes) appear to be in good shape. Master cylinder is ok and there are no fluid leaks anywhere....


ABS is anti lock braking system,which helps to stop car in various conditions.Wet/slippery etc
Sensors are located on all brakes
You need to go to your local auto electrician who will plug in scanner to locate fault

I have a 2000 blazer and my brakes quit working right so he changed the ABS unit and its still doing the same thing the brakes give out if i hold the brake for to long how can we fix this?


if it fades out not an abs problem pads and rotor may be glazed over [polished from riding brake] check pads and rotor if slippery polished over cut rotor/and replace pads ---if at low speed--almost stopping and getting an abs activation then one of the sensors is dirty or corroded and needs to be replaced low speed activation usually doesnt set off check engine light

It sound like ABS break sensor is out. most likely would be in the rear sensors or simply you need break pads.

first make sure to ask if the cv joints or axels are new or rebuilt,
if they are rebuilt, make sure to have the ring close to the sensor inspect for posible crack on it, and on the brake light most of timesx they come with a wear sensor, make sure that sensor is been replaced, since here you are not explaning if you replace the brakes your self or a shop did it, you might explained but i did not see it or pay atention , any way make sure to doble check than the wear sensor for brakes is been replaced, since not all the auto repairs will do it, and finally i suspect than one of your calipers might be loose, just have your car take to a diferent auto repair than offer free brake inspection and have them check for posible loose calipers
