Abs and brake lights are on


If both the RED brake light and the ABS light are coming on while you are driving the car, you either have an hydraulic failure or there is a problem with your ABS module that can potentially affect your regular service brakes.

The first thing to do would be to check the fluid level in your brake master cylinder. If it is low, you need to find out WHY. There is always a reason for the fluid level to be low. It is NOT SAFE to just add fluid without correcting the problem that caused the fluid level to be low.

If the fluid level is OK, then you must scan your antilock brake module for fault codes. The antilock brake module controls the antilock light and can affect the RED brake light as well. There are many different possible failures that can cause this. There is NO OTHER WAY to know why the antilock module has turned the light on. You can spin your wheels for days, replace a BUNCH of parts and never find the problem if you do not scan the module first.

1999 1500 ls abs and brake light on at same time then off just sometime


WHEN YOU SEE BOTH LIGHTS AT THE SAME TIME YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE EITHER MASTER CYLINDER FAILING OR ABS BRAKE MODULATOR FAILING.CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER. IF BRAKE FLUID LEVEL OKAY. I HAVE SEEN CASES WHERE ALTERNATOR FAILING CAUSING BATTERY VOLTS TO DROP AT 11.8 VOLTS CHECK BATTERY VOLTS AT BATTERY WHILE ENGINE RUNNING SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS AT BATTERY WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF BATTERY POWER IS OKAY.MORE LIKELY BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER AND ABS MODULATOR COULD BE FAILING. TAKE VECHICLE TO A GARAGE LET THEM CODE SCAN TO SEE WHAT CAUSING ABS AND BRAKE LIGHT TO COME ON.CODE SCANNING WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY.

Tcs/abs lights keep coming on after I had the two sensers replaced on the frount wheels allso now the break light comes on wile driving. the car is a xg350L


The tcs/abs and brake lights are all on the same warning circuit. First i would check the brake fluid level and make sure it is topped off, next i would have the problem codes read and see if it helps you pinpoint the issue. If the light sometimes come on and sometimes are off i would suspect connection problems in the wiring. hope this helps

My brake and abs light has been coming on


If BOTH lights are coming on at the same time, or really any time any brake related light comes on, then you should have this fixed as soon as possible as it's a potential safety hazard. You can start by checking to make sure the brake fluid level at the master cylinder is full as a low level there can sometimes cause both lights to come on.This fluid level will slowly decrease a bit over time as the brakes wear normally and fluid is taken up by the brake calipers as the caliper pistons move outwards. The fluid level could also become low due to a leak somewhere which is a serious problem. If the level is low then it should be determined where the fluid has gone. If the level is good then the system has seen a serious problem with both the ABS control system and the hydraulic portion of the brakes. Either way, have it checked out as soon as possible.

My abs light and my red parking light is on steady what kind of problem do i have


Hello treedy22.
Your car has a switch inside the brake master cylinder reservoir that will activate when the fluid level gets low. This will turn on your red brake light and deactivate the ABS system. That is why both lights are lit.
Check the fluid level, refill with DOT3 fluid ONLY. It may take a couple of minutes for the light to turn out as sometimes the switch sticks in the bore inside the reservoir..
Then you need to find out why the level is low. Check your braking system for leaks or excessively worn brake parts.
Hope your repair goes well.
