Anti-lock brake light is onI had this problem and there is no way to check it.
I took it to a shop and they find out, it is a wheel sensor.
You can ask for them to check it only, because you need to know which wheel, if you can repair it your self.
Reset it and after driving for a few miles it will flash again.

I own a 2006 saturn vue. My check engine light stay on and my anti-lock brake and traction control light come on about every couple of days then it goes out. I had it check with a scanner i think the code...

Have you driven thru any big snow piles/drifts/berms or deep mud etc? It sounds like your ABS sensor is/was damaged.

Get the EXACT code and reply.

An amber abs light is on my 1996 accord accord 2 dr lx -- is this a safety hazard ?

Any time the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. The brake system should still function normally since the normal brakes do not rely on the ABS system to function. The only thing you will notice is that the brakes will lock up under a hard or emergency braking situation. My personal thought on this is at least find out why the light is on. If it is a relatively inexpensive repair that the added safety of the ABS system is well worth it. If it is a expensive repair that you'll havue to way the options. Under .the passenger side of the dash or behind the passenger side kick panel you will find two connectors not connected to anything. One will have three wires and one will have two. With the key off jump the two terminals of the two wire connector. Turn the key on and count the number of times the abs light flashes. It shoul be a series of long flashes and short flashes. The long flash is the first number of the two digit code and the short flashes will be the second. Post the codes and I will try to help you further.

1994 old custlass supreme how do you rest the anti-lock brake light

Hopefully the repair that made it illuminate was repaired. If it was then use a scanner to erase the code and the light will reset itself.

ABS light on 80K miles

I would say if you are not having problems with your brakes ( ABS means Anti-lock Brake System) then it is probably a broken wire on the wheel sensor that is right next to the drive shaft.
Have someone plug an OBD II reader in and see if you have any codes, please letme know what you find.
If you are having brake problems take your car in and have a reliable auto center repair.

Anti lock brakes are always on (almost constant ABS pulsing in brake pedal when braking.. not always but more than not)

The sensors are on the wheels. You need to have someone connect a scanner up to it since the light is on, you should be able to get a code. These units are difficult to diagnos without a scanner...even the flow charts that comes with the GM manuals sometimes will leave you hanging especially if it is the module on the ABS pump.

The ABS light keeps flashing

unfortunately the abs or anti-lock braking system consist of sometimes many complicated computer controlled components the only way to know for sure (without signs of major braking problems) (or tale tell signs) is to run the computer on a diagnostic scanner which give the error code for the problem ie:sensor x or y out of range pump malfunction etc. Depending on the year you may be able to find a cheap scanner online or at an auto parts store for @$30-@$120 or take it to a GOOD mechanic if you know one and have it diagnosed probably around @$60-$80 US or the dealer will check it and more than likely get it right for around @$80-$100 US

Anti lock brake light on

It is most likely a bad front wheel speed sensor.Your sure abs rings were on back of rotors?It is going to be next to impossible to fix without getting the code with a scanner
