SOURCE: abs and brake lights comes on

What you will need to do is have the system scanned for codes. Your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto will scan the vehicle at no cost for you. Write the code numbers down and reply back.
When both lights come on, it is indicating one of the ABS sensing components is not operating properly. Your base brakes will be fine, however the ABS function will not work properly. No danger of base brakes not stopping the vehicle.
My guess at this point would be a wheel speed sensor faulty, but again, only a guess until you get the codes scanned.
Get the codes and let me know.

SOURCE: my abs light is always on and now my brake warning light is on but brakes seem to be working fine

The ABS light is a warning that you have an issue with the ABS system. The red brake warning lamp is serious. It is telling you that there is an issue with the base brakes. Your car will be ok with an ABS light, but the red warning lamp could be really dangerous. You should have them checked ASAP. It could be from many causes. A park brake switch, low fluid, the causes are too numerous to list. Please for your safty have it checked. Good Luck

What causes brakes to 'stick' when pedal tapped?

the ABS does not cause the brakes to stick, they cause them not to stick so I would have to agree with them on that. Did you ever drive another journey to see if that vehicle had a similar feel to the brakes. It might just be the way the vehicles are?

If the ESP and ABS lights are on than there is likely a problem with the ABS system. The only way to find out what is going on is to scan the ABS system for codes and work from there. Any reputable shop will be able to do this.

2004 dodge why are abs& brake light on breaks work fine

Check for codes & diagnose the abs braking system

The fact the brakes seem to work, has nothing to do with
the fact you know you have system faults, or the dash lights
wouldn't be on.

I have a 2010 Grand VItara and the dash lights for ABS lights and ESP lights are on constantly. How do I disconnect them. We HAVE had the breaks replaced.

old post
ok new brake pads. but is not the ABS part under full factory warranty 7 yr. / 100,000 mi.? (over 100k?).
the ABS / ESP system is a tad complex.
ignoring the ABS warnings is a big mistake.
what you should do , is (out of warranty) take the car
to any mechanic shop that has ASE trained mechanics
they all can work ABS, in their sleep ! PROS
did you check the four corner sensors for damage or mud, etc.
Was the system ever breached, that is brake lines ever removed
allowing air into the system.
please do not cut corners on brakes,

Disconnect them> (what, the brakes the ABS box or the lamp>)

and NO, ABS can not be bypassed.

My ABS light came on, how long can I safely drive it before taking it in?

the ABS just prevents you from skidding, it does not affect the opperation of the brakes. So long as you dont slam on the breaks you will be fine, however it is always best to have all systems functioning properly.

the ABS light on my 2000 S-10 has been on for the last 15 months and I have never failed to stop.

If the the abs module fails you still have breaks BUT if you need to apply the breaks to the floor the abs will not work which could allow you to go into a slide because of loss of traction. the abs system pumps the breaks to prevent your tires from locking up

ABS light comes on after 20 miles on Montero Sport 2000. It goes off when car is turned off and then on again after 20 or so miles.  Breaks seem to work fine.

ABS light is turned on when there is an anomoly in the Wheel Speed Sensor data coming to the ABS Brake module.

Have the car scanned by a brake specialist who will have an OBD-II ABS Brake Scan Tool.

If you want to diagnose it yourself, Actron makes a very good one that costs about $99 plus shipping depending on where you get it from.

I bought one with shipping included for $116 off of for my car.

Good luck.

Abs system

it is a failed wheel bearing.the hub and bearing comes with an abs sensor and when the bearing could not be located by the sensor it will turn on the abs light and make the car skip when braking.check to see if your not missing any brake fluid and that the truck is still able to brake.if all is good then change the faulty wheel bearing.if you dont want to invest right away just disconnect the connector for the abs to the bearing.braking will feel normal and youll just have the abs light on.

ABS is near the breaks when you take the tire off and the break pads you will see it it is very small part that is a sensor. mine went on my car when the guys were putting my breaks on it it really has not made to much of a difference in the breaks. they are costly so I just deal with the ABS light for now til summer
