There are lots of things that can make those lights come on. Low fluid level in the brake reservoir, brake pad wear, and/or failure of any of the components that make up the brake system.

I'm guessing from your post though that your reservoir level is just low.

There really isn't anything you can do to make the light go off because as soon as you drive the car the problem will come back.

Brake fail, read the operator guide.
it says take it in.
you dont have a ABS scan tool so what would you do?
what i do is inspect my brakes (old school way)
and then clean all ABS sensors, dust them off look for road damage.

What is my ABS light comming on and stay's on how can i fix it temporarly?And my Break light comes on and off,what can i do to temporarly fix it?Please help!!!!

You can't fix it temporarily because it will come back on as soon as you use the brakes again. Check the reservoir lever and see if its low. If not, its something more involved and most likely will require parts and labor to repair

I have a '06 GV and in the dash appears the ESP and the ABS lights. What the ESP light means and how can I fix it? What I have to resolve with the ABS light?

the ESP is the electronic stability program it works in conjuction with your abs, its it's to help you not over steer your vehical if you go into a skid, the abs keeps the wheels from locking up so you also don't go into a skid when hard braking, check all your wheel sensors and your brakes to make sure you do not have any broken wires or contaminated connections.
hope this gives you some ideasgood luck!!

What causes the abs light to come on?

If your ABS light is light it could mean several things. First check to make sure that your parking break is all the way down. Secondly, it could be cause by you not having enough fluid for your breaks.

My 2002 Tribute ABS Light & Break Light are both illuminated: break pads and rear drums were replaced march 2011: i know abs is tied in with the break system: what could this possibly mean for break...


if both lights are on together the car needs to be checked by a professional immediately.

it could be as simple as a loose connection after the work done in march, but both lights together could also mean a MAJOR fault in the ABS system that could result in loss of brakes.

an ABS system is not something that is servicable yourself.
it needs professional diagnostic equipment.

i can only recommend that you drive as little as possible, and get the car checked as soon as you can.

I have a BMW 1999 wagon with 64,000 mi . It runs great and I feel no apparent break problems. But... the ABS break light comes on with the triangle (caution) with the circle arrow with the exclamation...

The ABS brake light will go on whenever it doesn't see a signal coming from the wheel speed sensor on any of the 4 wheels.

May need to have it scanned for ABS Brake codes to determine which wheel is affected.

What would cause traction active light come on

i have had this problem since about 6 months after i bought my 2001 impala. the problem is in the hubs. the wireing that runs throw them rubs together and eventually shorts the traction and abs. easy solution to fix it though. get into the hubs and wrap the wires. otherwise take the car in and explain the problem to them and exactly what you need done. 9-10 times they won't fix the problem unless you tell them what you want done. it is really simple and going to the dealer should only cost you about 100 to fix.

What does it mean when the ABS warning light comes on, on the console?

When the ABS, VSC & Trac Off lights all come on, this means that you have a problem in the ABS system. Without a proper DTC code, I cannot really isolate the situation, but, the first place that I would look at is the wiring and the connectors going from the wire harness to each of the 4 wheel speed sensors. Any break or fraying at these wires, or corrosion in the connector WILL make those 3 lights come on. If you can, get the ABS system scanned with a scan too, and record the codes, and then get back to me for a more concise solution.
