Abs warning light affecting rpm

When the ABS light is on it makes a buzzing sound when driving at increased speed, but when its off the car is fine. The rpm when driving used to be better, but its been about 1 rpm above what it usually is. This started about 2 months ago. Usually i can just reset the light and its fine, but lately i haven't been able to. Any ideas on the problem, I thought it might be the sensor.

    Thanks teddy for your helpful comment, I actually did get it checked at the shop when the problem arouse. But since the ABS comes on randomly still after when the guy at the shop reset the computer its hard to find the time when it seems fine. I just wanted to know if anyone knew how rpm and ABS would be related together, but thanks for nothing Teddy.

SOURCE: speedo and abs light on bmw 5 series

hello , it sounds like you have a bad speed sensor or all 4 of them , see when the speedo plays dead like that is because (most cases ) the sensors at the wheels are bad due to water and normal driving corrosion , the data for the speedo comes from the abs module that monitors the sensors if the abs does not reed it the speedo will not reed it aswell , it will be good to scan the vehicle to see if you need more than 1 sensor there is one in each tire axel ,good luck

I presume you don't need to worry about codes for the radio... unhook the battery for about 15 minutes and hook it back up... that should reset it.

SOURCE: abs sensor light wont go off my 2005 polo

Your ABS systems use a combination of electronic and hydraulic systems to modulate the brakes individually to prevent them from locking up. ANTILOCK systems consist of wheel speed sensors, a hydraulic control unit (HCU), and an electronic control unit (ECU). Because of how complex the system is your computer does a self-test. If the check is successful, the ANTILOCK and BRAKE lights will go out within a few seconds. If one of the component of the ABS system fails to pass one or both lights will remain lit. One or both warning lights may also come on while driving, also indicating a problem. If just the ANTILOCK warning light comes on, some ABS component has failed, but the car still has hydraulic brakes. The grinding noise could the the ABS pump or your brake pads could to worn to the metal backing and grinding against the brake rotors. I recommend a inspection soon for your safety.

Why abs light on


The ABS warning light is on because there is a fault in the anti-lock braking system(ABS) and the system is no longer operational. This does not affect the normal braking of the vehicle. But if you lock up the wheels under heavy braking, with an inactive ABS in your car, there is no system to release brake pressure and allow the wheels to rotate and regain tire grip .

The most likely cause of the fault is a failure of one or more of the wheels speed sensors. Until the fault is rectified the warning light will remain.

My 1998 towncar has an ABS,check trac and trac off light on. What sensors should I check because the air ride is fine and the brakes are fine. I travel on the inerstate 5 days a week abt 30 miles round...


Hello Leigha.

The problems you are describing are related to wheel speed sensors.
Because ABS and traction control depend on the input from the speed sensors from each of the wheels.
Most often when this problem occurs it will be one of the sensors, a bad connector or a broken wire in the harness to the sensors.
The easiest way to determine what the problem is, is to have the ABS system scanned for the code, or codes that have turned on the warning lights.
Make sure that whatever service center you take it to is experienced with such problems and has the proper scanning equipment to find the problem.
Your air suspension is not affected by this, they are separate systems.

If you would like further assistance regarding your problem please ask me in comments.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My 55 Kia sedona my red brake warning light comes on after a few miles and stays on until i turn off engine. Also comes on injunction with my amber ABS warning light


First I would check the brake fluid level to make sure there is enough in it.Most of all It seems you have a major problem with the the ABS system which turns on the brake light as well as the ABS light.Chances are you have a couple of wheel sensors that have gone bad.Do you hear a wrrrrrr sound that increases and decreases as you go faster and slower while your driving?

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

2001 chevy cavalier taking longer to shift and jumping


Most likely a ABS sensor is going bad at one of the wheels.
The ABS will overlook a certain amount of erratic reading....the traction control will not....and/so it reduces your power.
You may see a ABS light next.
The shut off may be the fuel pump warning you of failure soon.....if your mileage is high.
If it does stop again....listen for silence from the fuel tank.
Get use to the slight buzz noise of the pump so you can detect that missing if the car does stop.
The pump should run constantly when there is oil pressure and when you first turn the key to run position it does a 2 to 3 second prime cycle.

Can a replaced non programmed abs affect auto gearbox


The ABS control unit does need to be coded to the vehicle. After coding the control unit, an End-Belt run test must be performed. I know that you will also have transmission faults stored, because the Trans warning is set since the control unit has not been coded
and the control units communicate constantly during engine operation. The trans uses abs input for shift characteristics and helps with power reduction during evasive driving control. A dealer should be able to code and perform the end run test and usually charge about an 1hr fee. They will also need to quick delete other fault memories.
