What would cause the Emergency Brake light to not go off when the emergency light is released? What causes the ABS warning light to come on?

Brake and abs light


Check to see if your emergency brake is partially on. Also the abs light goes on when the sensors on the hubs get corroded from salt. They either need to be cleaned or replaced. Mine are on from corrosion from road salt so rather than pay the hefty fee to fix the issue until I can do it myself I just pulled the fuse for ABS in my panel to shut that system off. Perfectly safe to drive without them and not an inspection requirement. Now your abs is probably going on every time you apply the brakes and that is not a good thing!

I have a friend who has a 2004 ford f150. The check engine light and abs light is on and the truck jolts like is trying to shift gears a steady speed. What might be the problem?


Take it to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys for a FREE scan. Since a problem light is on, the computer will tell you what part is bad.

The ABS can have a problem reading the RPM of each wheel if there is dirt or debris blocking a sensor. Common problems are the rear Emergency brake shoes coming apart within the drum portion of the rear rotor. The rear of the truck has 2 braking systems, an Emergency brake and a service brake.

The ABS portion of your problem can also be scanned with a better scanner having more functions. The "Check engine" light is on a separate system and most minimum priced scanners will work with it. Since the ABS is automatically operating, a malfunction can result in a jolt as the individual brakes are wrongly applied.

The ABS will apply the brakes to the fastest spinning wheel and this will result in a drivetrain jolt.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Track off light and ABS light and Sevice Vehicle Soon light stays on all the time. Sometimes the emerge light comes on.(i, P light). For the Service Vehicle light, I...


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.

My 1995 honda preludes emergency brake doenst work, when you pull it up it comes up easy and the break light does come on, also my ABS light is on and wont turn off


The parking brake problem could be rear brakes out of adjustment, a broken parking brake cable, or a parking brake cable in need of adjustment.

The ABS light mosy likely has nothing to do with your parking brake problem and will have to be diagnosed by first gathering the ABS fault codes from the ABS computer.

2003 Mountaineeer wont shift into Park


There is a shift interlock mechanism that only alows the key to come out in park. It is the same mechanism that will not let you put it into gear unless you put your foot on the brake. You cannot safely bypass it.
