We have the same problem with our malibu, it turns out a new brake module on the inner fender behind the driverside light is the cause to that, its a pretty expensive problem to fix because they are very hard to come by used as most rot, so the only way to aquire one is a dealership and no other car out there will cross reference with that specific brake setup,

hope it helps you the same way it did me

My ABS light is on and my brakes work fine. every once in a while the light goes off and the brakes act like the anti-brake system should. What seems to be the problem?


The warning light is telling the driver the system is disabled. The hydraulic brake system works independently from the ABS altho the ABS does use some hydraulic components.
You would need to have the ABS checked for trouble codes to proceed.

My ABS light came on, how long can I safely drive it before taking it in?


the ABS just prevents you from skidding, it does not affect the opperation of the brakes. So long as you dont slam on the breaks you will be fine, however it is always best to have all systems functioning properly.

the ABS light on my 2000 S-10 has been on for the last 15 months and I have never failed to stop.

Abs light comes on when driving above 60 mph but brakes work fine in my volvo v40


Brakes always work but ABS may be not functioning.
This is probably to be repaired by experienced repair shop.
Brakes are too serious to make experiments by yourself.

My abs light in my 2004 pontiac aztek comes on after i apply breaks.I have had it in the shop and they replaced the brakes then took it back because the abs light still comes on and they reset the code.It...


If the ABS light is on, then there is more than likely an issue with one of the wheel speed sensors. The only way to know for sure which sensor or if any thing else is worng. Is to take your car to a shop or dealer with the abilty to scan an abs system. I have been doing this a long time, and i can tell you this if a mechainic ever tells you that reseting the light will fix the issue then they are liying.

My abs light is always on and now my brake warning light is on but brakes seem to be working fine


The ABS light is a warning that you have an issue with the ABS system. The red brake warning lamp is serious. It is telling you that there is an issue with the base brakes. Your car will be ok with an ABS light, but the red warning lamp could be really dangerous. You should have them checked ASAP. It could be from many causes. A park brake switch, low fluid, the causes are too numerous to list. Please for your safty have it checked. Good Luck

1991 Dodge 3500 D after using brakes hard the ABS light is on and brakes seem to take a while to release. Brake light on dash is on all the time.


Had the same problem in my Dodge Dakota recently. It seems that the hose from the white fill bottle on the brake system had become clogged and even though there appeared to be plenty of brake fluid in there, there was almost none in the master cylinder. Check the level in the master cylinder. Worked for me and the ABS light reset after a couple of days, likely would have reset sooner if i bled the brakes but I just let the bubbles work out on their own...bad idea but it was cold and rainy.
