My ABS light stays on when engine is running. Brakes are good, only 20% of wear. Brake fluid is good. Wheel sensors are good. What can I do to get this fixed?

    I also have a problem with the battery being drained if you leave the battery connected for four or five days along with the surging of the speedometer and emergency brake light coming on not the abs light.

    The ABS Light came on and I eventually solved the problem. This is the saga of this perplexing problem.

ABS diagnostics requires a scan tool (Chrysler DRB II, DRB III or aftermarket equivalent). the plug is located near the brake pedal. this is the only alternative to get the ABS light off.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

Parking brake light stays on.


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.

2000 suburban dashboard brake idiot light won't go out


howdy, when the solid red brake light is on without an ABS light, it is usually low brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir or the brake fluid level sensor in the reservoir is stuck or defective. let me know if this helps you ...... good luck.

The ABS light stays on all the time, brakes are fine, checked all lights


You may need to make sure that Ford Factory pads have built in sensors on them. In many vehicles these built in sensors will cause the abs and brake lights illuminate when the brake pads wear down to a certain point. Also make sure to check your brake fluid regularly. I used to work for a Infiniti dealer in the service dept. When the brake fluid was low it caused the brake lights to come on as well. Just a few things you can check out yourself before taking it in to the dealer to check for codes.

Here is a Problem for you all! 2000 Grand Am GT ram air v6 ABS and Brake light always on, No trouble codes, and no rear brakes at all key on or off. Has fluid at M/C and to ABS unit but not from unit to...


This problem sounds like and ABS module that has gone bad, the ABS module has toothed gears inside that actuate the ABS motor, if one of these gears slips a tooth or "unwinds" itself if will not circulate brake fluid to where it needs to go (ex: the rear brakes) alot of times the brake and ABS light will come on, but will not set any trouble codes. My recommendation is to take this to a repair shop and have them verify the problem and replace the ABS module, the motor gears have to be properly aligned when replacing or the lights will stay on and you will still have the same problem. Hope this helps.
