Well ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. The reason that kicks on is so your brakes don't lock up on you on certain terrain so that's not bad. But you said your brake lights are bad, check the wiring to them for any bare wiring to make sure none of the metal is hanging out of the insulation rubber.

I own a 2005 Lexus LS 430. Something blew under the good. Looks like a reddish liquid. The CSC light came on. What might my problem be?


VSC ?

Vehicle Stability Control

Part of ABS Braking System

On, the internet --if you do your research

If you have a liquid leaking, you can not use the vehicle,
& you don't go more than a day without checking for codes,
when ANY Dash Light is On--as you have a system failure

Replace brake lights


usually you pop your trunk and there are 2 screws you take out from the inside. you may have to move back the trunk liner to see them but it is a real simple fix.

I replaced my brake rotors on a 2004 gmc canyon and installed new brakes. everything works great, however my abs light stays on now.


IF you installed the wrong brake rotors,without the ABS reluctor ring[if equipped],the light will come on.Second possibility is you damaged the ABS wiring to the wheel speed sensor.There is a harness to each wheel.

How do I reset check engine light on 04 lexus sc 430?


With a scanner at a repair shop or auto parts house. The light will come back on it you didnt fix the problem first. At least jot down the code before you clear it. Hopefully its an intermittant issue but some codes even tho intermittant could leave you stranded if not dealt with.

BRAKE light comes on occasionally - parking brake not engaged.


check your brake fluid it is more then likely low.You might need brakes as when they wear they take up brake fluid as the piston extends to make up for the worn pad material.

I doubt it. You'd have an ABS light on. All wheel are warm to scalding hot after even light driving. ABS systems do not apply brakes. They unapply them. They simply cut the fluid to one of the wheels / axle sets of brakes. (Newer stability control systems use the brakes) In your case. The ABS can deactivate either front wheel independantly, or the both the rear brakes together. You can take the wheel off & flip the pad & piston up to check it if you want, but I wouldn't think it was the brake dragging at the top of my list, no.
