    If you know where you computer is located on the car you can reset that and see if the light goes away, but its pointing to a faulty sensor and its located behind the wheel inside the hub and it looks like a plactic box with some wires attached to it.

What the other person purposed I believe works only for the diagnostic codes on some OBDII computers.(shutting off power for 5 minutes) but I am told that the ABS system is a complete subsystem from the dianogstic codes and reflects a seperate entity.As you know braking system is serious business and if you had it repaired and items replaced what does the repair shop say why the light is still on? I had a friend say the dealer told him the ABS light was on because there was a module in the sytem that failed. The dealer told him you do have brakes and we replaced what was wromg but the ABS system is not working. If you want the ABS system to work he would have to replace the computer at approx cost of $1500.00 but the car was functional just that the ABS was not working.As previously stated braking is serious business and if something is not working I wonder if there is hidden manufacture warranty still in effect? Various states are a little more consumer friendly and go after problems like these. This is not a solution but a little more information in order to hopefully make an informed decision.

How to turn off abs light

Often when a code is stored, even after fixing the original problem, the code remains in the computer. You can clear the code, if indeed the problem is fixed, by disconnecting the battery for 30 seconds. If the light reappears, then most likely the abs wiring is not fixed or there's another abs problem.

I replaced my ABS sensor but I need to reset the ABS light. How do I do this?

Disconnect the battery for a few minutes and turn the key to the on position back and forth to drain any remaining power in the system. reconnect the battery after the power has been drained and all your warning lights should be reset. If warning lights re-illuminate then you have something wrong.

Meaning of ABS light

On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.

What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.

My ABS light on my Isuzu trooper remain on how can I reset

You first need to scan your Antilock Brake System (ABS) computer to retrieve the fault codes set by the system failure. The fault codes are needed to identify the correct diagnostic and service procedure to repair the broblem with your ABS system. It will do absolutely no good to reset the computer memory to turn the light out if the system failure is not properly diagnosed and repaired. This will only result in the light coming back on again.
