I would check that the sensors are all correctly connected at each wheel.
Also you may find that rust or other debri is sitting between one of the sensors.
Clean and check.
If not always best to get a garage to check, as you should never gamble with your brakes.

SOURCE: 2004 focus brake & ABS light on

Ok the reason I ask is that will help to pinpoint the concern. See ABS system when you first turn the ignition on will do a self test on itself,light turns on for a few seconds then turns off if everything proves out. Then when you start driving once you reach about 12 mph it will activate the pump and perform a 2nd self test.If everything is ok light stays off,if it see's a problem it turns on the light and disables the ABS.
Since yours comes on after you start driving then problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor concern. Since you just did a rear brake job and the problem started after this I would say it is one of the rear sensors.You need to look at the sensors and make sure the sensor and ring look ok and that you didn't get grease or dirt in the teeth of the sensor ring or maybe bent the end of one of the sensors and make the gap larger between sensor and ring.

SOURCE: ABS and service light reset after brake change

the ABS light resets itself every time the key is turned off and on, it is self testing and will only turn the light on when there is a problem in the ABS system, worn out brakes don't cause the ABS to come on, if the light is on the system has a fault present and it must be tested with a factory system scanner to determine the source of the fault or at least the area that is causing the problem, that can be one of the four wheeel speed sensors, a defective ABS hydraulic control unit and sop on.

SOURCE: abs light won't go away

What you need to do is get the codes from the Electronic Brake Control Module,(ebcm).This will tell you what wheel is making the light go on.Could be a sensor or wiring to the sensor or the EBCM.Generally the brake pads or shoes themselves will not cause the anti lock brake light to come on.If you post back with the codes I can help you out with diagnosing the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

The brake light and ABS light are on in the dash. I changed all 3 wheel speed sensors and the light won't go out. I hooked up a codes reader but it doesn't tell me why the lights stay on.


There are 4 wheel sensors for the ABS not 3 and the brake light may be the sensor telling you that the brake fluid in the reservoir is low and needs topping up

Break pads have been changed but brake light will not go off. Found that I need to change the sensors but do I get ABS brake sensors or just wear sensors? Not for sure what sensors are right to order...


If the abs light is on, it could be one of the abs sensors. If not, you would be talking about the wear indicators. And keep in mind the regular brake warning light also involves the parking brake and the hydraulic brake fluid level.

My ABS AND Brake lights and change oil light is on


Lets start with what is the year make and model ??
If the ABS light is on, you would need to have the computer scanned to get the trouble codes so you would know what component to test.
The brake warning light could be telling you the hydraulic brakes are low on fluid, or the parking brake is not completely off.
You would need to reset the change oil reminder, if it is a red oil light, it could be telling you the oil pressure is low.

How do i turn off my abs and e brake light after changeing my brakes


If the ABS light is on, there could be a wheel speed sensor bad. The brake light may be due to low fluid, but this doesn't make sense since you just increased the level by changing the brakes. Maybe the parking brake is partially engaged or the lever is riding too low or high causing the brake light to go on.

I changed the brake pads on a 05 equinox


Did you bump the ABS pickup at the wheel hub when you changed the brakes? Or are the wires maybe nicked? The noise is normal and might go away depending on the brake pad type you replaced with. The ABS problem might be caused by you.

Changed brake pads and fluid. Brake light/ABS light still lit.


Go back around and check to make sure you didnt accidentally pinch or cut a brake pad sensor. Also the ABS modules on VAG cars are pretty crappy.
