Abs light sometimes on...sometimes off

ABS and check engine light both on for months.....had to replace the battery recently...... When both lights are not on I get what appears to be a slipping sound from the front wheel (driver side) when i start from a light....and the anti slip warning light flashes for a second....then everything is ok. When the CE light and the ABS lighs are both on....I don't have this problem

The ABS light coming on means that the computer is seeing a problem with the ABS system, which won't set the CEL light, especially since the ABS system has nothing to do with the engine. You need to have someone scan the system for all codes, soft and hard. And then let us know what you find out.

I have a '99 dodge grand caravan se, while in park the abs light came on, the battery light came on, and the check engine light has been on,


Looks like you have a few issues there.

1. The battery warning. This is indicative of a weak battery and if your battery is 3 years old or more I would replace it.

2. If you have a weak battery this can trigger other warning lights in the vehicle, typically the ABS warning but sometimes other warning lights as well depending on the electronic features in the car. If you replace the battery this should correct the battery warning and most likely the ABS warning if both of these warnings appeared at the same time.
Normally, once the ABS warning is displayed the anti lock braking system(ABS) will be shut down. Whilst your braking will be normal, if you brake too hard and lock up your wheels on a slippery road there is no ABS assist to prevent the brake lock up which you have when the system is working.

3. If the alternator on the engine is not generating sufficient power and thus not charging the battery at all, or very little, you will likely get a battery warning light. I don't know if your 1999 vehicle has a warning light to indicate a faulty alternator or not.

4. Check Engine Light.
You suggested the CE warning has been showing up for a few days and before the battery and ABS warnings popped up.
The CE warning can be caused by dozens of different engine issues.
The vehicle needs to be scanned with the appropriate scan tool to see what fault codes the onboard computer is generating because if you have a CE warning light there will be fault codes generated 99% of the time.

Once these fault codes have been pulled the mechanic can start to diagnose the cause of the problem or problems. Each engine fault code your car's computer is generating can be caused by different types of problems so it is important that they diagnose the issues correctly. Otherwise your Check Engine light will remain on as long as the causes are not identified and fixed.

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.

2001 pontiac sunfire abs and check engine light is on. brake fluid is full and the front brakes were just changed about a month ago.


I think these lights are not related. The ABS light means the ABS is not working, and has nothing to do with the brakes working. You can have brakes and not have the ABS part working. I don't think a bad ABS would turn on the check engine light, but it may.

Abs & Brake light on.


I have found that the wheel sensors for the abs system get very dirty and cause the abs warning light to come on. You can try to clean them if you have the tools to take them off but usually you just want to replace them.

Your brake warning light and your rear braking problem may be caused by the same problem,
the cable sticking. Good luck!

1996 Honda Odyssey strange, intermittent ABS problem


If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck

2002 Suburban ABS System Brake Light


I have had this same problem on two difference vehicles both of which are suburbans.

The solution is simple.
Remove the engine cover.
Locate a small ground wire that is bolted to the top rear of the engine block on the passenger side.
Remove the bolt, clean surfaces and replace.

This should solve your problem.

I know it seems too easy but it works.
