Why is my abs light on my car keep on burning after replacing hubs and removing sensors it was of now stays on


If you have removed ABS sensors, you wil get either light on or off, as sensors are needed to tell you that ABS is working.

I've changed all my brake parts awhile back but now I'm getting a warning lights for my ABS system on my 2005 X3. Not clear why the light is on, and the dealer is no help.


  • ABS is Antilock Braking System. Basically it prevents your wheels from locking up and skidding out of control when you stomp on the brakes. On older vehicles you would pump the brakes with your feet manually but with ABS this happens automatically.


  • ABS while part of the braking system is not something that would be addressed during a brake job. The ABS sensor are inside the hub. You would need to remove the wheel to access this.


  • If your ABS light is going on then you either have a failure in the power feed to your ABS sensor or the ABS an sensor is failing. Your BMW should have an ABS sensor on every hub. On occasion a brake light being out can cause an ABS light to come on the dash but this is a rare occasion.


  • To test your ABS sensor you remover the wheel and in the top of the HUB (bearings) you will see the sensor and connector. Remove the connector and check for resistance with a multi meter.


  • I'm concerned the dealership could not help. With that light on the should be able to hook a scanner up the the vehicle and see what exactly is wrong and where. You may want to consult a different dealership. You can test things just as easily.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Sometimes the abs light will stay on after starting.


I have the ABS light on. I pulled the relay to reset it. the light went out but as soon as I start moving the light comes on. I tested the ABS on a sandy road and it does work. I jacked all wheel off the ground. I rotate each wheel and found the ABS light comes on when rotating the rear left wheel. I removed the rotor to examine the the system. I cleaned it with the brake cleaner I still get the ABS light on after rotating the wheel. Is that the sensor that is bad?

The abs light on the dash stays on it is a 1997 ford f150 how can i fix it


Hello there
i will explain this in the best manner that i can
it may take a couple of post but i will get it all ok
There are many things that can cause your ABS light to come on. Some are serious, so you should never just ignore the light. But there are times when the light comes on and can be met with a simple solution. For instance, a dirty ABS wheel sensor can cause the system to trigger the ABS light during self evaluation. You'll be shocked when you see how much road gunk can accumulate on this very important sensor. Even if your ABS light hasn't made an appearance, it's a good idea to clean the sensor. A good time to do it would be during brake pad replacement when you have the wheels off anyway.
What You'll Need:

  • Ratchet wrench and sockets
  • Ratchet extension
  • Jack
  • Jack stands
  • A strong rag
Begin by loosening your wheel lugs, then jack the front of the car up and rest it securely on jack stands. With the car safe, remove the wheel lugs and take the front wheels off. With the wheel off, turn the steering wheel all the way in, opposite the side your working on. For example if your working on the passenger side, turn the wheel all the way toward the drivers side.
Locate the ABS wheel sensor. Remove the bolts that attach it to the rest of the suspension. You may also need to remove a few bolts to pull the sensor away from the vehicle for cleaning. Follow the line to see if there are more bolts. Remember not to force it or pull too hard. Then along the line theres another two 10mm bolts, that need to be removed, just follow the abs sensor line to get at them. With the sensor free, take your rag and wipe the sensor until its clean. I prefer not to use any chemicals on the sensor to avoid potential problems. If you need to, use mild soapy solution and rinse well. Reinstall the sensor in the same manner it was removed.

ABS light on!


Its possible you damaged a rear wheel speed sensor when you did the strut job. If the wire was pulled tight when the strut was removed it could have pulled the copper strands in the wire from the sensor causing a open circuit. This is not uncommon. You need to have the ABS system scanned for codes and see which rear wheel sensor is effected. If you were to just clear the code it will just come back on. With the ABS light on, the ABS system is deactivated and the brake system works normally as a car without ABS.

'98 Windstar ABS and traction control lights after getting brakes done


Prior to the brakes being replaced you more than likely had metal to metal contact which can throw metal shavings on the ABS wheel sensors. This metal shavings stick to the road grime on the wheel sensors showing the ABS computer a false reading making the ABS light come on. On Ford Windstars, the ABS light and the traction control light are on the same circuit. A simple (and cheap) fix is to pull the ABS wheel sensors and clean them with brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner. Make sure you dry them well and reinstall. On the Windstar there is one bold holding the sensors to the back of the wheels. I recommend you spray some WD40 on the bold and wait about 10 minutes before removing.
If this doesn't fix the ABS light and brakes, you can have the ABS system diagnosed at a shop for about an hour labor. (Usally about $100)
I have fixed many of these type of problems just by cleaning the ABS wheel sensors. Good luck.
