The ABS is an in line service that keeps brake line pressure as the wheels are cycled between stop and run in a skid situation. Under normal braking the ABS doesn't work so if your brakes have failed then have then checked out by an accredited brake shop . ABS light may be on to tell you that the ABS system is not available I would be checking the master cylinder and brake booster for brake failure.

SOURCE: Abs and parking brake lights come on and stay on

There is probably a problem with you anti lock brake system. Have it checked at your local dealership. Brakes are a problem that should never be let go.

SOURCE: abs brakes making noise.

Well the abs light reads wheel speed sensors located behind the rotors you will see a little wheel with notchs in it and when reads as if the wheel is locked up it will activate the abs i would inspect those sensors for damage possible one got bent or has junk on it interfearing with the signal and take it back to the place that did the brake job hope this helps

My car is a toyota harrier 1997 model.my abs warning light comes on .why


Because there is a fault in the system and the electronically operated anti-lock braking system has been de-activated.
You will still have normal braking though. However, If you lock up the wheels under heavy braking there is no system in operation now that releases the brake pressure to permit the wheel or wheels to rotate and gain traction. It is all manual control, ie. you have to control any lock up you cause yourself with the braking pressure you apply.

The most likely cause of the ABS warning is a failed wheel speed sensor or sensors. The warning will remain until the cause is identified and fixed.

1999 1500 ls abs and brake light on at same time then off just sometime


WHEN YOU SEE BOTH LIGHTS AT THE SAME TIME YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE EITHER MASTER CYLINDER FAILING OR ABS BRAKE MODULATOR FAILING.CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER. IF BRAKE FLUID LEVEL OKAY. I HAVE SEEN CASES WHERE ALTERNATOR FAILING CAUSING BATTERY VOLTS TO DROP AT 11.8 VOLTS CHECK BATTERY VOLTS AT BATTERY WHILE ENGINE RUNNING SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS AT BATTERY WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF BATTERY POWER IS OKAY.MORE LIKELY BRAKE MASTERCYLINDER AND ABS MODULATOR COULD BE FAILING. TAKE VECHICLE TO A GARAGE LET THEM CODE SCAN TO SEE WHAT CAUSING ABS AND BRAKE LIGHT TO COME ON.CODE SCANNING WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY.

On 2005 ford escape a light on for check brake lamps


Hello, You will need to inspect your brakes to cure this problem. Be aware that the rear brakes have 2 systems in them, a service brake and an Emergency brake.

What happens usually is that debris from a failed brake pad has fallen into the Revolution counter on one of the wheels. This confuses the ABS unit and activates a Warning light. Another possibilty is that you have a Brake fluid leak and need to fix the leak and replace the fluid.

A shop with the proper scanner can hook up to your vehicles' ABS system and it will reveal which wheel is causing the alert. The remaining way without a Scanner is to pull off the wheels and manually look at the Brake hardware behind each wheel.

The warning lights are usually accurate and this is not a repair to delay.

1998 Dodge Caravan New brakes. Front Axel removed to get to power steering pump to remove it. Got van back brakes felt strange had to hit them hard car pulled infront of me. ABS light came on. brakes...


Bad brake master cylinder could cause this, It will start leaking internally and not build up pressure. Will happen just do to age, will need to replace it and bleed brake system.

My brake and anti brake lights stay on all the time


CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT IT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF VOLTAGE LOWER 12 VOLTS THAT WILL CAUSE BRAKE AND ANTI LOCK BRAKE LIGHTS TO COME ON BECAUSE THAT NOT ENOUGH POWER FOR ABS BRAKES OPERATION.IF ALTERNATOR GOOD.BRAKE AND ABS LIGHTS ON ALSO MEANS LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.ALSO. YOU HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.YOU NEED TO HAVE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP CHECK BRAKES SYSTEM.BEFORE BRAKES COMPLETELY FAIL.

Abs system


it is a failed wheel bearing.the hub and bearing comes with an abs sensor and when the bearing could not be located by the sensor it will turn on the abs light and make the car skip when braking.check to see if your not missing any brake fluid and that the truck is still able to brake.if all is good then change the faulty wheel bearing.if you dont want to invest right away just disconnect the connector for the abs to the bearing.braking will feel normal and youll just have the abs light on.

My 2001 corvette has a abs light on dash board


The Light is on because the ABS system for your Anti-Lock Brakes has failed....the Brakes will still work...but the ABS wont...basically if you slam on the brakes... you will lock up your tires as if it were an older model car before ABS came out. The most probable cause is a wheel sensor that "Counts" the notches on the wheel axle near the knuckle has failed. Could just be dirty...mis-adjusted or broken.i would need more details to determine the exact cause. Hope this helps.
