SOURCE: hi, how are you? when the

Hi there,

ABS: this is your Anti-lock Braking System.
BAS: this is your Brake Assist System.

The first thing I would suggest you check - press the brake pedal and confirm if your brake lights work. If not, then you have a faulty brake switch (on the brake pedal).

If lights DO work, then the next step is to have your Fault Codes read from your vehicle's computer - this step will identify which circuit/component has triggered these warning lights.

Note: It will take your local Dealership approx. 15mins to check these codes, so shouldn't cost much.

Make absolutely sure that all of your connections really do go to the correct places. Also you need to make sure that the chassis of the stereo is grounding correctly and that the earthling leads from the engine to car chassis and battery to chassis are in good order.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting

Key will not come out of ignition and anti-lock light is on.How do I fix this?

Sounds like two problems. The ABS light comes on when the ABS module detects an operational error within the system. The ABS module will need to be scanned for codes to determine the source of the problem. As for the ignition key, make sure the gearshift is fully in the park position. Once in park, the key should easily remove. Were you having any other problems with the key prior to this mishap?

Hi, I have a 1992 Mazda capella cargo. I have just had a guy tell me the ABS is not working on the car. Firstly does it have ABS because there is no warning light on the dash. Secondly if there is ABS...

If you're not a mechanic, turn your ignition key on but don't start the car, all of your warning lights should come on. If you have ABS you should see a yellow light that says ABS, once you start the car all the light should go out within a few seconds.If you are having problems with your ABS, the yellow light should be on.

ABS not working

When you put the ignition on, does the ABS light come on? If not may be the previous owner has removed the bulb because ther was a fault with it? if your answer is positive then probably the beat thing to do is to insert a new bulb and see if the light stays on. Check the fuses and remove the battery terminal for 6 minutes and refit it an start the car and see what it does. If it stays on then you'll have to get it scanned.
Let us know how you get along with it.

I have a 2000 passat. We changed the brakes and now the ABS warning light, buzzer and "service manual" keeps coming on the dash. Any ideas what it might be?? Thanks

To stop the service interval warning and sound coming on please follow the following steps.
1. insert key into ignition. 2. using right hand press and hold the odometer reset stalk. 3 using your left hand turn on the ignition ( dont start the Car) 4 now use your left hand to press the clock adjust stalk and turnit to the left. ( just advance the time by 1 minute) 5 release both stalks and then turn ignition off , then on again and your service warnig light and sound will now not appear for the next 5000 miles. ( repeat the above when it comes on again) This will also save you £30.00 for the garage to do it.
