Make sure the wires are correctly connected then just drive the car and the light will go out on its own ,may take half a mile but it will reset itself

SOURCE: after replacing the left front wheel bearing on a 2003 ford focus, the abs and traction warning light stay on

The bearings on the wheels has to be installed one way only, the rotor ring is built into the bearing and if installed the wrong way round the sensor cant pick up the wheel speed causing the ligt to be switched on in the cluster. The diagnostic equipment should pick this up as a fault once the car has been driven, it will see the sensor when you do the diagnostic if the car is standing still but once the car is moving and no signal is send from that wheel it would register a fault into the memory of the PCM that you would be able to retrieve later.
There is a way for you to test the sensor yourself by using a multimeter set on volts, you jack the vehicle up at that wheel, install a vehicle stand to support the vehicle to be safe, disconect the wheel speed sensor and probe the two wires into the sensor, spin the wheel by hand and a small amount of current will be produced meaning the the sensor is working and the wheel bearing is installed the correct way, you can also do a continuaty test on the sensor by switching the multimeter onto ohms, but be very carefull, if this sensor has three wires you cant do the continuaty test because of the integrated circuit in the sensor, the three wire sensors opperate on a voltage from 5Volt and it would be destroyed by the multimeter opperating on 9Volt.
If the continuaty test passes and the bearing is installed the correct way, the most comon fault would be a break in the wiring leading to the PCM
Hope this will be helpfull.

SOURCE: my abs and trac lights are both on. we cant find

When both lights are on you should check wheel sensors. Look for small plug at the back of rotor, probably 2 wire. Make sure all sensors are securely attached/latched and no obvious damage to sensor such as breakage from stone, etc. Check all wiring at wheels for break, rubbing, pinch, etc. If nothing visually obvious then check codes with code reader or scanner for clue to which wheel needs attention.

try disconnecting the negative cable on the battery for 15 minutes then reconnect do this a couple of time if not you may have a module problem being that it's not recommended to jump start a vehicle that's equipped with pcm of any kind good luck

I have a 2003 Nissan Maxima SE. Occasionally, the ABS activates during times where conditions don't warrant. Sometimes downhill, coming to a stop on flat, dry surfaces, etc. No real pattern.

Broken/damaged wiring,most likely at one of the front wheels.
90% chance broken wire.
5% chance ABS unit.
5% chance pickup sensor at one of the wheels.
Plug it into a scanner and check feed at every wheel while flexing and pulling on the ABS wiring at each wheel.

Esp light on sprinter 313 2011 cruise control works now and then any clues thks

check the wheel speed sensors wiring and reluctor rings, the electronic suspension system is part of the abs system, the cruise also uses speed signal from the abs system, sounds like you may have a broken link lead to one of the front wheel speed sensors which makes and breaks connection when you move the steering, wheel good luck

How do i turn off the abs light in a 2000 buick lesabre

Do you know why the light is on? The light comes on cause a fault has been detected in your ABS system. Not taking care of the problem will only ensure that the light will come back if reset. Have your vehicle scanned and post your findings. Also look at the wiring for the front wheel bearings if you find any of the wires broken this is most likely why your ABS light is on. Broken abs wires is a common issue.

What happen if abs light come on and goes out

Usually it is a broken wire on one of the front wheels making intermittent contact inside the wires own plastic covering but could be a failing ABS component like a wheel sensor.Check for any ABS codes stored to help lead you to the failing area/wheel causing the trouble.

My anti-lock brakes light on the dash is on....what could be causing this?

Problems with ABS can be frustrating. You have senors on the front wheels, you have wires that run to the sensors, plus you have the ECU mounted to the master cylinder or on the fire wall depends on other options. Now the wheel sensors work like little alternators. Your wheels will have a gear that the senor reads as the wheel turns and then creates an A/C voltage that tells the ECU unit that the wheels are turning. Having a ABS code could mean that wiring to one of the sensors is broken or has fallen off, or is corroded at the plug end. Your ABS system has four major parts the ECU, an ABS hydraulic unit and the wiring harness to the wheel sensors, then last the sensors themselves. You will need to check all the wiring harnesses to each If you have a multi meter you can read the voltage of each wheel sensor at the other end of its wiring harness. Jack up the front end and find the end of each wheel sensor harness and spin the wheels by hand. you should get a reading on the AC voltage scale of about ..45 volts. not quite a half volt. when the wheel stops the meter should go to zero. spin the wheel and the meter should show voltage. That will tell you if the sensor and the wiring is good. The ECU has no trouble shooting it is good or bad.can't help you there. same with the Hydraulic unit. Most times it will be a wire broken or a bad wheel sensor. Good hunting.

I have a 1997 Blazer. The ABS light comes on intermittently. When the ABS light is on the power windows and blower motor do not work. When the ABS light is off everything works just fine. Help????

That sounds strange about the power windows and the blower motor not working when the ABS light comes on. I happen to have a 99 Chevy blazer and I had the ABS light come on several times. There are ABS sensors on the two front wheel bearing hubs. If you take off the front wheels you will be able to see a black electrical cable that has 2 wires inside of it. This cable is coming directly from the ABS sensor on the wheel hub and is strapped to a bracket the is on the upper ball joint. From the hub it then goes to a plug connector that is under the protective flap that you lift to change your spark plugs. What I found that is a common problem is that wire tends to corrode or doesn't have enough slack in it when making turns and starts to pull and break. Examine that cable and if you see any breaks in it, that will cause the ABS light to come on. Also if you can get to the plug underneath the flap, unplug it and use a multimeter to see if you are getting any resistance on the two wires. If you aren't getting any resistance then your sensor is bad or you have a broken wire to the sensor. On my vehicle the ABS light kept on coming goin on and off intermitently and I found that wire from the sensor to the plug had a break in it. I stripped the wires back, spliced them together, soldered them and I used heat shrink tubing to cover the connections. The ABS light went out and it has been fine ever since. Hopefully this will solve your problem as well.

1998 f150 abs and park light on fluid good, feel no dragging

ABS light being on could be a bad sensor or broken wire to the sensors. ABS is on the front brakes, check the front wheels inside for wiring going up to the main ABS ecu mounted at the master cylinder. Check the wires from at the bearing assy. then follow up to the ABS ECU or the brain, for any cuts or nicks. You can have a bad wheel sensor you check these with a volt/ohm meter, Find the plug at the wheel and unplug it ck for ohms should read like .018 ohms. If you raise the wheel and spin it you can then read volts, depends on how fast you spin the wheel you can get 2-3 volts. .

Brake lights in dash (Brake, ABS) have replaced brakes (and broken spring) but lights dont go off...have disconnected both battery terminals for hours lights stay on

check connector and sensors for damaged ,or disconnected wires if good have vehicle scanned some auto stores such as auto zone / advanced auto scan for free the trouble code will give u a place to start with ur abs disconnecting the battery wont reset the abs if a sensor is bad

Service, abs, and trac off lights are on

Usually when the ABS light comes on the circuit is broken and my experience usually leads me to a broken wire on the 03 and older in the system.
90% of the time it is the wire to the left front wheel or the plug in that plugs into the magnet on the left front wheel.
Please check that first. If you find a broken wire repair it and your system will work again.

ABS error code 41 & 42

41 indicates Rpm sensor, at left front wheel, 42, is right front sensor. I'd check for dirt in and around both, clean connections, and wire brush or whatever the toothed ring to clean it all up, then clear codes & see what happens.
