It will not turn off until the existing problem is fixed.You can try a code reader or scan tool they will erase the codes but if the problem has'nt been fixed the light will come back on.

I got a Lincoln navigator 2004 my abs ight and avtra light How turn it off

The ABS warning light is on because the control module for the ABS has sensed a fault, until the fault is repaired the light will remain on and you have no ABS brakes. You need the ABS system scanned for the fault code to see what part or wiring is defective. When the system is repaired the light will go out.

Brakes feel like they locking up on a 2008 Mariner ABS light is on and traction light is on

When the light is on the ABS system records a fault code for the failure, you now need the ABS control module scanned to retrieve the fault codes stored there, once you have the codes you perform the needed diagnostics to correct the problem.

How too take abs light off after new brakes are fitted

Fitting new brakes wouldn't usually put the abs light on unless you disconnected the abs and then switched on the ignition, made an unfortunate mistake or coincidentally an abs fault occured naturally.

The abs light is supposed to illuminate for a few seconds when the ignition is switched on and then go out signalling there are no faults. If the abs light is on it means a fault has been detected.

Early systems would cancel the light when the fault had been located and rectified but I believe modern systems require the use of diagnostic equipment.

diagnostic reader and or workshop time required to
to fix both VSC and engine light faults /codes

VSC is brake /traction related ..... this is one explanation

It would appear that system braking, traction control, and possibly some anti rollover control is dis abled if this warning light is on. So it is both fuel in efficient and possibly dangerous to drive with this light on.

engine light

there are stored fault codes in the engine computer module pointing to faulty sensors on the car needing to be checked or replaced

Abs light off turn

Dpending on the vehicle make and model ( always good to give that info when asking for help on a vehicle repair) , the ABS system actually performs a self-test everytime the ignition switch is turned on and if there is no faults present within the system the ABS light will illuminate and then go off. If ,however , there are faults with in the system the ABS module will set a trouble code for the circuit at fault and then the ABS light will come on and stay on until the key has been turned off and recycled to the on position. If the problem still exists then the light will act just as it did the first time and stay on. If the system passes, then the light will come on during self-test and then go off upon passing self-test. The only other way that a light will come on and go back off on its on is on some models when an intermittent fault is detected.
But to answer your question, the only way to get the light to go off and stay off is to repair the cause of the light coming on (repairing the fault in the system). You will need to have access to a code reader that can access ABS systems or take it to a trusted repair facility and have the system diagnosed to determine direstion of repair.
Hope this helps

Fiesta duratec 2005 Abs warning light on

Whenever the ABS module turns on the ABS light in the dash it is to alert you to the fact that a fault has occurred in the ABS system and the control module has turned off the ABS brake control, you now have regular non ABS brakes. The waring light will stay on until the fault is corrected. Since a large number of problems would cause this you must get the control module scanned to retrieve the fault code that was set in the control modules memory when it turned on the light. Once the fault code is known the process of diagnosis and repair can begin.

Why does my abs light stay on?

Dear Madam or Sir,

this is possibly due to a faulty ABS-Wheel-Speed-Sensor. There is one mounted to each wheel, the ABS control unit compares all four signals to compute the moment to intervent. If there is one signal unplausible or missing, the control light will appear to show you that there was an error recognized and stored to the control unit´s memory.

You should see the shop to access the fault memory via diagnosis eqiupment to get to the heart of the matter.

Kind regards from Germany,

AutoDoc P. :)

Air bag and abs lights staying on

If the Airbag light is on, it indicates that a electronic fault is stored in the memory for the airbag. You will need to have a diagnostic check done to pinpoint what the fault is, have it sorted out and only then can the fault be cleared so the light will go off. The ABS light also indicates a fault on the electronic side of the braking system. If the light comes on as you start the vehicle this indicates that there is an open circuit in the wiring or that the ABS control unit itself is faulty. If the light only comes on once the vehicle is in motion, this indicates that a wheel speed sender is incorrectly fitted or dirty and not sensing the ABS Rotor on one of the wheels. If a CV joint has been replaced, the joint may not have an ABS ring fitted on it.[front] At the rear the ABS pick up is fitted on the inside of the brake discs and must be fitted to the new disc when replacing discs.
