The warning light means there is a problem with the ABS system and it is disabled. You would need to get the system computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Abs light is on

1. Check 40A ALB fuse to make sure it's not blown
2. Check the reservoir fluid level (both master cylinder and ALB resovior) and fill to max if low.
3. Check break hoses for leaks.

If you find an issue with #1 or 2 and the light stays on, disconnect the battery for a few seconds to reset the computer. If it comes back on, you've got issues somewhere else and you probably won't be able to fix it yourself. Not a big deal if your brakes still work though, you just won't have ABS (maybe).

Buzzing noise coming from abs unit on start up, when he noise stops the abs light comes on ?

The light indicates a malfunction in the ABS (ALB) system. First, I would check your brake fluid level in the ABS unit (see pic, similar, I think). It should be between the max and min levels indicated on the front face of the reservoir. You should also check your regulator brake fluid reservoir to make sure the level there is correct. Dot3 or Dot4. If that is not the problem, then wheel sensors would be suspect, but that would be a Honda service indication.
Hope this helps you.75b78f9.jpg

Are you asking about the ABS sensor? (Anti locking brakes system). If so you prob dont have the tools to check, but you can find out if they are working by driving and stomping on the brakes, you will feel it grab let go and grab again. If your light is not on, on the dash your system is prob functioning properly. Good luck

Anti-lock brakes come on just before I stop when payment is dry

did you check the alb sensor? You might also have the "return spring" stuck in the emergency brakes. Sometimes they break causing the brake to lock, which in turn activates the alb. Also, check the brake oil level, in some cars alb dont work properely if the oil level is too low. Good Luck

Rear anti lock brake light & brake light on in 1991 ford 350e m/h

If the brake light and alb lights are on u need to get it checked out, as this is a warning of a brake problem, and u could find yourself w/out brakes.
1st check the easy things, is tire pressure what it should be in the rear tires? Low pressure on one side would result in the tire running hotter than the other properly inflated side. Is the emergency brake completely off? If on even slightly, it can turn on the brake light. Is brake fluid at the proper level? If low, the brake light will go on. If it's low, u must check for leaks to see why it's low. The abs light on indicates a problem w/ the system, it could be as simple as a broken wire at the rear wheels. u may also have a brake dragging on the rear pass. side, causing the brakes to overheat, which could result in heat transfer to the wheel, and then the tire. This can be checked by jacking up the vehicle (~if u have a sturdy enough jack), and with front wheels blocked front and back, in neutral, engine off, turn wheels in back, see if resistance to turning is the same, or if brakes are dragging, u should be able to tell. Let me know how u make out.
