The only to get rid of an ABS light is to fix the problem. I would get it scaned and see what it would cost for parts. As long as you don't have a red brake warning light then your base brakes are working. If you have both lights then get it fixed soon, before you have an accident. Good Luck

How do i fix my problem, left indicator starts flashing when turn engine on but stalk will not stop left side or start the right side yet hazards work fine


One of the most important safety systems in the car is the Turn signal system. It can help prevent accidents by signalling to other drivers on the road when you need to change course and which way you'll be turning. It is also required by law to have a car dashboard turn signal indicator that works properly. You will need to wire the indicator in your dashboard to the proper lights and locations in the car. For a standard turn signal indicator in which the turn signal lights are the brake lights, please check this link on how you can do this:

What do the Dashboard Symbols Mean?


I have a mini cooper and every so often symbols come on when I first start up the car. Evidently this is the only time these symbols come on (versus staying on if there is a problem) which is a hassle, because its hard to remember what they are. But here is a list I found to help other Mini drivers like myself:

gbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg">
  1. Oil Pressure Warning Light. This symbol light usually is turned on when the ECU of the car detects any problem with the oil pressure. It usually indicates that the engine oil level is too low. Solution: Stop the car immediately, switch off the engine, and wait until the engine is cool down, top up the engine oil if the level is low. If the light is still on, consult any mechanic. P/S: This light is usually on when you switch on the ignition and it should be gone as soon as the engine starts.
  2. Battery Charge Warning Light. If the light is on during the car is running, it indicates that the car batteryis not charge. It could be some faulty of the charging system. Solution: Consult any mechanic.
  3. Brake System Warning Light. If the e-brake or handbrake is engaged, the light will on. If the light remains illuminated after the handbrake is released, it may indicate brake fluid level is low. If the fluid level is correct, it may be the sensor fault.
  4. ABS Warning Light. If the light is on while driving, it indicates a malfunction of the ABS system.Solution: Consult a mechanic as soon as possible.
  5. Warning light - Unidentified problem. Computer or ECU in the car sometimes hardly knows what the problem is. It usually indicates the car needs to be serviced.
  6. Engine Warning Light/OBD Indicator. You can always see this symbol in mostthe cars. If the light is on, it indicates that the car should be serviced. It could probably the engine malfunction or some other problems related to the car engine.
  7. Low Fuel. It's LOWWWWWWWWW FUEL, Please refill!
  8. High Beam Light. This symbol light is on when the driver turn on the high beam mode of the headlights. If the light is on when high beam is off, it could be the sensor's fault.
  9. Windshield Wash Symbols. Most of the new car has windshield wash, therefore this icon is common for most of the cars. The symbol notifies the driver when the windshield wipers are activated.
  10. Windshield Defrost. It is turned on once the driver presses the windshield defrost button.
gbq2mr3zjq-1-2.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-2.jpg">
  1. Fuel Filter Water Trap. This symbol is normal but ONLY for diesel engines car. If the light is on while driving the car, it indicates water is detected in the fuel filter. Solution: It is usually safe to drive the car but have to get the water in the fuel filter drained off as soon as possible.
  2. Temperature Warning Light. The symbol looks like a thermometer. It warns the driver that the engine is overheating. Solution: Find a safe place and stop the car immediately.
  3. Fog Beam Indicator. This is pretty basic and pretty simple. If the fog beam is on, the symbol illuminates.

The ABS dashboard light is always on, where are the ABS sensors located?


The ABS sensors are in airbags depending on the model you have. Best way is to use a ODBII reader to check the airbags to find the fault.

Some alfa's have issues with the connectors coming loose, it is common in the 147 and 156 for people to end up soldering the connector under the passenger seat.

Abslight stays on no brake lights


Fuse 12 (10 Amps) may be burned out. Its located in "Junction Block". Losing
fuse 12 would kill the ABS systems and light the ABS dashboard light.

Fuse 11 (20 Amps) may be out. Its located in "Power Distribution Center". Losing fuse 11
would kill the brake lights, and light the ABS dashboard light. If fuse 11 is blown,
check your (3) brake light sockets for shorts of any type, or fuse 11 will just blow again.

My ABS and parking brake light on my dashboard stay on. It used to be just when it was hot outside, but now it is cold and it is still on. I tried pulling the parking brake, but it stays on until I turn...


Why haven't you taken it in, to be diagnosed and repaired?

Any light on the dash, of any vehicle made in the last 30 years,indicates a possible malfunction of a vehicle system. Those check lights are govt mandated,so you get on it quickly,in case it is emission related.

You have an ABS system Failure,Wheel Speed Sensor or some other issues

Hi have no idicators, central locking, fans inside ABS & Airbag light on


Is the engine starting?

Not sure I have understood the problem. Please confirm if this is correct.

1. the indicator lights on your dashboard do not come on (green lights). Are you saying the green left and right arrow lights do not turn on when you turn the indicator lever up or down. Do you see the outside orange lights flashing?
2. central locking is not working
3. the ABS and Airbag lights on dashoard are on
4. what happens to the fan. This is no clear either.

2001 Ford explorer sport- The ABS indicator light is ''on'' steady


Try cleaning your ABS senors. They are located on the back side of your brake roters. The each senor reads how fast each tire is turning and if there is a big difference between the four your ABS will kick on.

Dashboard light on not sure it's meaning


Hello!

A sign like this 30450c7.jpg indicates that your parking brake pads(shoes) are worn, and are in need of replacement.

A sign like this 937110c.jpg indicates that there is problem with the ABS system (can be anythig from a faulty wheel speed sensor to a burnt out fuse)
A non functioning ABS could bring the tires to a lock up during extreme braking which could be rather dangerous.

Hope this helps!
