SOURCE: ABS warning light


To my knowledge, the ABS light coming on indicates that the system has been disabled for some unknown reason(s). This would then translates to your vehicle having only standard/conventional power brakes, but brakes you will still have.

The correct procedure would be to have your ABS Brake Code scanned and interpreted.

The ABS warning light could be triggered by faulty sensor in any of the wheels or damaged wiring/connector or worst case scenario defective ABS module, pump or motor. Alternately, you try to fill the reservoir up. Normally, there would be a rubber cap andanother plastic cap under it. Add Honda brake fluid with the engine running. It would be preferable to do it slowly as to allow the air bubbles to escape. Additionally, pls check for any sign of leakage. If for some reason it would considerable fluid has to be added, it may be necessary to bleed the system. Pls reference this page for the procedures.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2002 Accord EX Check Engine Light Stays On

Some major parts stores offer free code reading. Call your local parts store and ask. Remember that codes give general information that there is a problem with an engine function, so whatever function the code reveals a problem with, can be a number of different things that could be wrong. It is a starting point on your search for the actual problem. So if you know what code # is causing the check engine light to illuminate, you still have to determine what is wrong by checking all the components of that system. It would be a great help to pick up a repair manual for your accord, good luck, God Bless, countrycurt0

SOURCE: ABS pump failure

The problem is the solonoids inside the modulator are stuck, all you need to do is!!! Clear the code, than drive car while no abs light is on than lock the car a few times on wet road. The will help to free up the solonoids. Do this about 10 times, brake fluid is the only parts needed!!! Call me at 302 529 7888 if you like!!!

Reset abs light

If the ABS light is on than there is an active problem with the ABS system. If it comes on and stays on when you start the car it is failing the self test. Repairing the problem will turn out the light.

If it comes on for a couple seconds when you start the car then goes out until you start to move than there is likely a problem with a speed sensor. Again repairing the problem will turn off the light.

Your best bet is to pull the codes from the abs system to see what the problem is then repair it.

When the gas light comes on how much gas do i have left in the tank?

I am pretty sure that the light comes on when you have approx 1/8 tank left. In my honda, with a 12 gallon tank, that equated out to 1.5 gallons, or approx 45 driving miles on flat land in the city. Of course, you should check your average miles per gallon with your driving style , as well as filling the tank once the light comes on, to see how many gallons are left, and you will have an accurate number!

This is simple on the dash board in your cluster area, there is a rest button, like to one you use to rest trip mileage. Turn you ignition on to the for position, that without the light in the cluster are on eg the abs light and stuff like that. Push down on the reset button for 10 seconds. Still holding the rest button turn the ignition on to the 3rd position this where the abs lights and other come on in the cluster area. Hold for another 10 seconds. Then release the light should go out when vehicle is started. Good Luck

1996 Honda Odyssey strange, intermittent ABS problem

If you are absolutely sure that the all the abs sensors are good. Then the only other factors are the abs unit itself and the abs computer. Please have the system checked with a a scanner to make sure. Remember the only way to an ABS light will reset is by driving the vehicle and if every component of the system is fine the light will go out. Because your light is on there is a problem in the system and your abs is not functioning when the light is ON .Good Luck
