Abs ightcomes on


Most common problems that cause an ABS light in the XJ is a bad clockspring - located in your steering wheel, or the ABS tone rings themselves rusting too much. The tone rings are the toothed rings at the end of each of your axle shafts.

The clockspring would have to be replaced, but the tone rings can often just be cleaned of rust so that the ABS sensors can read them again.

ABS Light Stays On


Since you replaced the pick up units or sensors, check the tone rings on the axle shafts. The tone rings is what the sensors detect and are located at each wheel that has ABS. A tone ring looks like this:

This tone ring is on a Ford Ranger - which is pretty much the same as your Mointaineer. Notice the break in the tone ring. This will cause an ABS Fault indicator and will need to be replaced to extinguish the lamp. Check the brake fluid level and top off if needed.


Try another AutoZone or similiar to get a code and be non-specific about the light - just say a light came on on the dash and you don't know what it is about.

Good luck!

My abs light wont turn off


There are several possible issues here. The ABS light will turn on when
  • brake fluid level is low
  • the pads need replacing (maybe)
  • the ABS control fuse / relay system has a problem.
  • a wheel sensor is not not connected or broken, or there's dirt/snow on a wheel hub sensor ring.
  • the ABS computer is dead.
  • the ABS control valve block has a pressure problem.
Your brakes will still function safely, but with no ABS action.

The ABS computer has an error port, like the ECU has. The dealer should have the tool to read any ABS error code.

If you are technically competent, pull the wheels off and check the ABS sensor ring and sensors for dirt and cable connections.

I have a 2003 isuzu rodeo. Sometimes it is hard to put into reverse. I can usually get it to work in 1 or 2 tries. the abs light came on a couple of times. what could make this happen?


I do not think shifting gears ,putting your car in reverse has nothing to do whit whit the abs to come on and off ,my isuzu rodeo did the same thing and it was a dirty sensor ABS on front wheels , There is a ring on the inside of the front disc's that works together with the ABS sensor to send information to the car computer when braking ,and must have a distance of about 1/8 of an inch between ring and sensor ,,they must not touch ,what happens is that over time dirt starts to build between sensor and ring ,and ring and sensor begin to touch ,and if they do touch ABS light will start be on and off while driving ,,most of the time the problem is the sensor and not necessarly a bad sensor ,,only a durty sensor and dirty ring ,a broken or loose wire also will activate the ABS light ,,,and about car hard to put into reverse ,you'll probably need a new clutch ,,good luck

ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND DISENGAGES THE ABS BUT


When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.

Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.

Trac Off and ABS Lights came on, won't go off


trac control & abs light staying on in dash on pt cruiser 2001 limited
well had same problem with my pt cruiser 2001, firstly there is no need to plug in computer under the dash for pulling abs error codes,
because the problem can be the cracked abs ring on the drive shaft/cv joint,
turn your steering all the way to left and ask your colleague to see if behind the tyre the abs ring is broken or cracked,
it is circular like a bracelete with grooves, then turn the steering to the right and repeat the inpesction,
if the abs ring is cracked then look on ebay or web for pt cruiser abs ring or kia abs ring, should cost about £5-£10 each
and a garage could heat it up with gas and hammer it into the drive shaft/cv joint for you for about £20-£30,
takes about 30min to 45mins, make sure the garage dont heat the cv booth kit rubber next to the abs ring when heating it up.
i heard you can only buy abs ring for front wheels and its not available separately for rear wheels,
so for rear you may need to buy the whole part it comes on
the front abs rings are easily visible when you turn the wheel to one side, the rear ones may not be visible as i have not seen them
so if the abs ring are good then it wil probably be one of the wheel sensors, in this case you you may look for a garage who will hook up
the computer and pull the code for you, be carefull if the say there are no abs error codes it means the sensors are ok and most of it
there is no need to buy abs sensor for any wheel when there are no error codes
on pt cruiser you can pull engine error codes yourself without a computer, just do the key dance on the ignition,
turn key until dash lights come on then switch off and then again turn key until dash lights come on then swithch off,
then turn key for third time again until dash lights come on , you will see engine error codes displayed then says done,
if there are no error codes it will say done, howevere these are engine error codes only not abs error codes,
abs error codes are pulled using abs diagnostic tool
incase its a faulty wheel sensor, will cost £45 at dealer or £20 from scrap, then a garage can removed the tyre and plug out the old sensor cable
and replace it with a new one, one end is easy to plug in but the other end has to be pushed in at an angle,
its about 30min job and garage can charge £20 or so
my pt cruiser is back on the road with just one abs ring replaced and it all cost me £30 alltogether

Vitz 2005 ABS light and Speedo


as a toyota technician, its probably the wrong fitted of the ring, once you replace the bearing they will removed the ring and in that ring there is a small hole that the sensor goes in. speedometer will not work not work if there is a malfunction in abs and it is speedometer,brake warning light are integrated with abs ecu.

Abs code c1234 jaguar x type


Had a similar problem with left abs. Garage eventually found that the notched ring on the CVJ was broken giving a false ABS reading (and warning light on). Replaced the CVJ (ring cannot be replaced independantly).
Hope this helps.
