I addition to what is said above. If you have different size tires that will make it come on also. This happens because the wheels speed sensors read different speeds because of an offset tire size.

There is a switch below your mastercylinder. This is the sensor. Sometimes you can tap on this sensor, and make it go out. You might have to get someone to pump up the brake pedal, then break the line to get the air bubble from around the sensor. This should fix the problem. Also check your fluid level in the mastercylinder before doing anything.

The brake light and ABS light are on in the dash. I changed all 3 wheel speed sensors and the light won't go out. I hooked up a codes reader but it doesn't tell me why the lights stay on.


There are 4 wheel sensors for the ABS not 3 and the brake light may be the sensor telling you that the brake fluid in the reservoir is low and needs topping up

ABS & brake Wobble in Cherokee front end


I am not familiar with your ABS as to how it is fed to the brakes but I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about. It sounds like your ABS is activating which is in my case the wheel hub. You will notice a wire harness coming down to your wheels and where that attaches is usually where the problem is. (problem being if I am correct when you brake you are getting a rapid pulsing rather than a smooth brake)

PO500 vehicle speed sensor 2004 toyota sienna


VSS is in with the TCM in the transmission. If you have tyre pressure senders then the light is telling you of a malfunction in that area . ABS will not operate unless a wheel stops under brakes and then only that wheel receives attention from the ABS unit. So if you are on a hard surface road and braking normally there will be no ABS action at all. Under heavy brakes when the wheels start to skid you will feel a pulsation in the brake pedal and that is the indication that the ABS is working. You will in affect (when the ABS is working) take a greater distance to stop than normally expected.

My ABS AND Brake lights and change oil light is on


Lets start with what is the year make and model ??
If the ABS light is on, you would need to have the computer scanned to get the trouble codes so you would know what component to test.
The brake warning light could be telling you the hydraulic brakes are low on fluid, or the parking brake is not completely off.
You would need to reset the change oil reminder, if it is a red oil light, it could be telling you the oil pressure is low.

Abs light on in my ford ranger 1999


ABS light tells you that there is some problem with the brake system like you have forgot to release the emergency brake or its time for you to change the brake fluid. Ford recommends to change the brake fluid every year.If you have recently refilled the brake fluid , check for any leaks.Abs light indicates that your braking system needs to be serviced.

Change brakes and rotos and abs light still comes on


It doesnt have to be bad brake pads to turn the ABS lite on, it can be a bad ABS wheel sensor. It would be easier if you had a scanner to tell you what sensor is bad

My Brake light and Abs lights will not go off


Theres a few things, brake fluid could be low, but not really a common thing, you will need to get it scanned usually the front abs wiring to the speed sensors wear over time. And getting it scanned will tell you what has turned the abs light on (code wise)

Abs light


A common cause for an ABS light is a broken wire to one of the front wheel speed sensor, or the sensor itself is bad. The sensor is part of the hub/wheel bearing assembly. A problem in the ABS causes the traction control system to be dissabled, thus turning on that light.
