First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0290 or C0292
Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
It is your speed sensor in the rear end...it is used for the ABS system, as well as low speed speedometer readings. I have had the same problem. It will cause the BRAKE and ABS lights to light as well as affect the speedo under 35 mph. It is an easy fix, and can be done by a DIYer or a shop for about $100.00.
when you have antilock "problem " on this vehicle you automatically get t\c light, I fixed this problem for a friend when the tire rubbed through one of his abs sensor cables .. just re-connected it don't spend $500 at a "RELIABLE" shop if you can fix this yourself....they will never tell you how easy it might be to repair!!
Yes, The light should clear after fix the problem. Check the connection on the sensors. Theres 4, one at each wheel. If you have air in the lines the ABS light will come on. To bleed go left rear, right front, right rear, left front. Don't let the reservoir go dry. Brake fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles
theres dust or muck on the drive shafts and they have a ring of teeth on the ends near the wheels they get clogged up and the pick up sensor cant read it. or.. theres a loose wire on one of your 4 abs sensors on each wheel
the 1st thing you need to find out is what ABS/trac control system trouble code you have, but based on what u have said you may have a defective wheel speed sensor, there are four and they are quite expensive so I would spend the diagnostic time and have the dealer test the ABS/Traction control for the code.
