SOURCE: brake and ABS light on
this could just be the car running a diagnostic check on itself and because you are turning it off then straight on there is a delay, also another problem could be there is an abs sensor located near the brakes, sometimes dust or break powder can get built up and lodged in and around it causing the sensor to give a false reading to the dash triggering the light.

You will have to retrieve and clear codes from VDM module with a scan tool. You may also have to calibrate it as well.

you will need to scan for ABS code......possible a wheels speed sensor is bad....also this will effect the 4X4. and engine/trans....first start with diagnostics to correctly save time and money, this can be a complex system....hope this helps....GL

It means you have a fault in your vehicles antilock brake system. Having the light on will disable the abs system. Antilock/traction control keeps your wheels from locking up and provides you with a more controlled stop, such as in rain or snow. Take it in to a repair facility and have them scan the abs system for fault codes codes

You may have a bad wheel bearing--do you hear a growing noise that gets louder with speed? The wheel sensors on your wheels are sensitive to excess motion between the wheel hub and the wheel, as they have a small gap between the sensor and the tone ring on the axle. The speed sonsors are used by both the ABS and the traction control systems on your truck. You can check your bearings for failure by jacking up the car and trying to shake the wheel. If the wheel doesn't have noticeable play, the bearing may still be bad enough to cause the sensor to misread the speed. If you're not sure, have your mechanic check the wheel bearings. If you have more questions, please let us know.
