How to reset a new abs module on 05 dodge ram 25oo

Posted by on


1 Answer

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
lamp issues.
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

P0573 is for your brake switch stuck. It means you either have a bad brake switch, or a bad wire.

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.

2007 Dodge Ram 2500, Took it in to the Dodge Dealership for a diagnostic this is what it said Engine light is on and the abs and brake lights. Also the Speed odometer is not working. Diagnose only...

Check all the "spare" fuses in the fusebox. replace any that are empty with the proper grade fuse. If it pushes in like it's connecting, that may very well be your problem. If it just slides in and out, the slot is unused, and therefore, "spare".

That warning light does more than just tell you the parking brake is on. It can also mean the brake fluie reservoir is low, or there is a malfunction in the ABS system.

ABS light has been on for awile,speedometer wont show untill around 35 mph,check engine light is on,need it to pass smog.Should I replace the one on the diff. or the tranny?

I had this same problem and may have found a solution that fixed mine. (2004 Dodge Ram 1500) Unplug the ABS module located directly behind the battery. Apparently Dodge's have a problem with moisture/water getting into these plugs. Use an air hose to blow out the moisture and you can even let it dry a bit. Plug back in and this should fix the problem. You may also need to unplug the negative battery terminal to reset the lights on your dash. I did mine before I even unplugged the ABS module.

My 04 3500 dodge diesl has an abs problem. Its

it is the ABS module. Remove it. Send to web site will tell you cost and turnaround time. Its plug and play if you choose to do this. If you get a new one from the dealer they will have to program the new one. Be sure to wrap the ABS motor and connector to avoid contamination. You can still drive the truck but wont have ABS capabilities.

94 dodge ram pickup. ABS & parking brake light on. Read out from plugin instrument said rear reset switch. Is there such an item? What needs to be repaired?

I don't know of any reset switch for the abs system. I would check the wheel sensors and make sure none are broken. Make sure the fluid level is correct and that none of the plugs are undone on the module under the hood by the master cylinder.

I have a 1989 s-10.The parking brake light blinks six times,pauses then flashes again.I was wondering what trouble code that would be???Thanks.

RWAL Fault codes
Codes for Dodge RWAL, Ford RABS and GM RWAL applications are similar but have a few differences:
  1. Should not occur (replace the controller if it does)
  2. Open isolation valve circuit or defective ABS module
  3. Open dump valve circuit or defective ABS module
  4. Grounded or closed RABS or RWAL valve switch
  5. Excessive actuations of dump valve during ABS braking
  6. Erratic speed sensor signal
  7. Shorted isolation valve or defective ABS module
  8. Shorter dump valve or defective ABS module
  9. High resistance or open speed sensor circuit (resistance should be 1000 to 2500 ohms)
  10. Low speed sensor resistance (Dodge & Ford only)
  11. Open speed sensor circuit (GM only)
  12. Stop lamp switch circuit (Dodge & Ford)
  13. ABS module speed processor (Dodge & Ford only)
  14. ABS module program (Dodge & Ford only)
  15. ABS module RAM memory failure (Dodge & Ford)
To manually clear a stored fault code on GM and some Dodge trucks with RWAL, remove the ABS fuse or disconnect the battery for 5 seconds. Ford RABS codes will automatically clear when the ignition is turned to the off position.
