Question about Cars & Trucks
There is nothing on any vehicle other than an oil
change warning lamp & couple other gadgets that
get reset & they don't have to be,people just don't like
the dash light on
I assume you got a dash light
I would think you have checked for codes,
since you mentioned abs
What do the code charts tell you?
Should you be diagnosing that system
for failure,or was they some out of range
thing that caused the light to blink,stay on,codes
or no codes. eg: One time event
You will have stored events, if you look at enhanced
data on a professional scan tool
Can't reset things to make your light go away
If you clear ANY MIL Lamp you remove the data
your or a shop will need to work on the issues
It may work for you & never come back,but I
would want to know what happened ,why & what to do about it
Most repairs,not all,will turn off the MIL Lamp once the computer
runs checks on start up or whatever the monitor strategy is
I road test 20 miles min before clearing any data from memory,
dash light or not,it is in there
Bad Wheel Speed Sensors are most of the abs & trac control
If you do one wheel hub do both,if that is the problem
Again,if a shop has made a repair, they should have cleared
NOT RESET the MIL lamp & all data

SOURCE: the ABS light comes on
Here are a few common causes for the ABS, ( Anti-lock Breaking system ), light.
1. Check brake fluid level, sometimes this can trigger the light.
2. When your brake pads get worn down, this too can trigger the ABS light.
Often new brakes will correct the problem.
The control module, ( onboard computer system ), is generally located near the front of the engine compartment. Most have a large plug with many wires.
I hope this helps.
