ABS light comes on when stopped and restarted hot

When cold it works OK. After driving and reaching normal hot temperature if you stop and restart light comes on. Sometimes accelerating and cutting and reconnecting the contact works to turn it off

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Have someone handy to press the gas pedal for you after the engine has warmed up well; best if driven.

While you listen at the exhaust pipe, have your helper increase the revs slowly and note whether the exhaust note changes to a hiss, instead of the sound of an engine firing.

You may have a decayed catalytic convertor and when they come apart inside, they can clog mufflers and resonators (the second, smaller muffler).

I've had this happen on more than one car and when it happened on a Fiat Strada years ago, since the routing of the system was fairly straight and made of heavier gauge stainless steel, I fired two shots with a .357 magnum into the tailpipe.
Never had another problem with it.

SOURCE: Air Conditioning

Sounds like the hig head-pressure cut=out is kicking in and shutting down the compressor. This is probably caused by not enough air being moved across the condensor coil (in front of the radiator). Check and make sure all the engine cooling fan components are in place and functional (fan clutch, shrouding, belts tight) and also check the coil for obstructions (Bug accumulation, road debris, litter). Clean the coil and radiator as much as possible at a self-service car wash, see if that doesn't help.

This can also be caused by an overcharged system (too much Freon). Sometimes when these symptoms first appear, the knee-**** response is to add another can of Freon, only to make things worse. If this is the case, I would recommend a system evacuation and service, replacing the dryer/receiver and pulling a 28mm/hg vacuum on the system, and then refilling with the proper amount of Freon, and cleaning the evaporator coils as well. This can only legally be one by an HVAC Certified technician, to insure excess Freon is not released into the atmosphere.

Hope this helps you figure it out, and good luck!

SOURCE: ABS, traction control and hill descent warning

This triple threat occurs on these cars. The dealer may try to sell a whole new ABS modulator but there is a flutter valve repair that they have a TSB for.

Once I've stopped the enginge(off the Ign by key), it's very very hard to restart again and sometimes totally cannot start again. I've to wait for long long time to restart. Can say cannot restart if


Do the dash lights come on? You might want to check the security system because at times it could be setting the anti theft kill switch, and after waiting a bit it will reset itself.... It could also be a bad ignition switch. Good luck!

Air pockets in radiator


Air can be purged. While your engine is cool remove radiator and reservoir caps. Place funnel in radiator. Turn heat to the highest position and start vehicle. Add coolant to radiator as needed while vehicle warms up. You should see bubbles coming out of radiator. Fill reservoir to between cold and hot fill lines. Replace caps when bubbling stops but before coolant temperature reaches normal operating temperature. Never remove the radiator cap until engine has fully cooled down.

1999 chevy malibu, stalls, no restart after getting to running temperture. fuel ok, cranks but misfires when hot. cools down and starts. runs good cold. crank sensors ok


Sounds to be a bad ignition module or one of the coil packs. Will need a scan tool to know what cylinder (s) are misfiring in order to narrow it down.

You'll have to find out what's causing the check engine light. Take it to Autozone, have it scanned for free then get back and let me know what they say.

1994 Accord ABS light stays on intermittantly after startup.


ABS went out while racing. I got a replacement from haprecycling for about $150 vs $1000+

just fyi, it's a pain to change. You will need a set of flare wrenchs and crows feet to get it in and out properly. Be VERY careful not to strip or cross thread the gettings.

1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode


Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html
