Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring
1999 Sebring Convertible
ABS Brakes do not work and the ABS light does not come on even when starting, all other lights come on for a few seconds as they should. Car does have ABS brakes
When I test drove the car ABS Brake light stayed on and ABS brakes seemed to work. Now that I have purchased the car ABS does not work and light never comes on
I would bypass abs contraption with new line.(87 dually) abs located under drivers side cab looks very susceptible and is known to fail.I would trust my foot before that old thing.Im rippin it out of my truck & replacing it with new line all the way back.Old lines rusted pretty bad.Better safe than sorry.unplug light bulb or just leave it in .Jersey cant say anything if its 94 or older at inspection.that goes for all the lights.For me,older is better.I dont know what setup you have or if you sold it, you could try replacing it for about 160 at advanced.I hope its not the computer screwin up,thats probably a dealer item.Try unpluging hydraulic unit for shits & giggles.Go over rear brakes again before you start cutting.

Hi. this light is a warning that concerns the ABS sensor and mechanism assembly. there is a central module and connecting sensors that are attached to each axle/rotor. If any of the sensors become unstable or starts to malfunction, the main module will detect this anomaly and it will trip the light via, the ECM.
I recommend taking this vehicle in so that the ABS techs can diagnosis this issue and they can pin point which sensor or mechanism is malfunctioning.
You vehicle seems to operate in a normal manner at this point but, you will actually have to be in a hard braking situation in order to experience this malfunctions results. If you where to initiate a hard brake while the ABS system is in safe mode(light on), your vehicle would simply lock up. It would not provide the ABS actions due to this malfunction that is evident at this point.
Please rate and god bless:)

There are many parts involved in the ABS system. You will need access to a scan tool to find out the fault code and go from there. It could be a wheel sensor or circuit, communications failure, system undervoltage, the list goes on and on.
