Abs pump!!! did you pump the breaks when you were bleeding them? as a rule with abs you just apply the brake and D pump will supply enough pressure to bleed they recommend you do not pump!! them standard brakes yes you must pump to bleed.

I replaced main brake line on driver side on 2000 1500 Dodge Ram pick up blead all brakes at each caliper no air present. Driven around six hour but abs and brake light still on.


If there is an ABS issue it will turn on the red brake light as well. Were these lights on before the repair? You can try disconnecting the battery to see if the ABS resets. If the lights come back on you will have to have a scan test performed on the ABS system to isolate the problem

1992 fuel injection 2.6 idle high and loping?


The brake and ABS lights could be on because of a brake or ABS problem. The ABS system uses the hydraulic brake system in addition to the ABS components.
The high idle could be a vac leak or a problem with the idle air control valve. You could check the computer for trouble codes even if the warning light does not stay on.

Abs brake light


The Brakes may seem to work okey, but you have an
ABS Braking System light on- indicating a system fault,
just like any other check light you get

Do you not check for codes almost the same day any dash light
or check light comes on?

It will bite you some day-- if you ignore the reason they are there

Fixing brakes


Try bleading the brakes, sounds like you have in them. Than the ABS light should go out & you shouldn't have to worry about the fuses.

2000 chevy cavalier ABS and Brake lights staying on


You had it scanned? They didn't find any codes? If there were no codes, did the ABS computer even communicate? Also did you check the brake fluid, most newer cars have a float switch in the master. If the fluid is low that will set off the lights.

2000 chevy lunima rear brake line blew replaced brake line and bleed but anti-brake lite stays on


Chevys are bare to blead, especially if it has ABS. Chevy dealers actually use TECH 2 / their computer to blead ABS systems properly. With it, they open the ports in ABS module, which helps the brake fluid flow. Unless of course you have ripped the sensor wire for ABS by accident.
