First you have to find what is causing the brakes to lock up as this can cause the ABS to activate turning on the light. once this is done then you can see if the ABS light is on, if so you will have to have the code pulled from the ABS module to know what to test.

SOURCE: 2002 Mazda Protege ABS & Brake light

It is most likely caused by one of the ABS wheel speed sensors, those little cylindrical nipples on the back of your rotors with the cable attached to them. One way to confirm it is to read out the OBD2 codes for the ABS system, but there are some checks you can do. Visually check all four cables and sensors , and make sure there is no build up on the sensors. Make sure that the connector they plug into has good connections. Look at the wheel speed sensor and make sure the gap between the sensor head and the sprocket is the same on all four wheels (should be no more than a mm). Disconnect the wheel speed sensor cable and use an ohm-meter to check the resistance of all four sensors (they should all be similar, but don't remember the value exactly). There is a way to just disable the ABS by pulling out the 60A fuse, but if you do that you may have to plug in a code reader and use a grounding jumper on the ABS electical access box (don't remember which pin) to reset the ABS faults, otherwise you won't be able to drive around like that because your engine rpm at high speeds will behave erratically. Also, do not drive around without fixing this problem or bypassing ABS completely because it could get you into an accident. My ABS problem was intermittent, and the ABS would sometimes kick in on completely dry pavement as soon as I touched the break pedal, it almost caused me to rear-end a car on couple of occasions.

SOURCE: I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean

Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:

  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2002 Suburban ABS System Brake Light

I have had this same problem on two difference vehicles both of which are suburbans.

The solution is simple.
Remove the engine cover.
Locate a small ground wire that is bolted to the top rear of the engine block on the passenger side.
Remove the bolt, clean surfaces and replace.

This should solve your problem.

I know it seems too easy but it works.

SOURCE: mercury sable 2002 serpentine belt change

There are also two serpentine belt types for the 2002 sable. The S and U type engine. Take the old belt with you the the parts store. As for the diagram, I googled it under images and about a dozen correct ones came up. Remember the 2002 sable is the same as the 2002 Tarus.

2002 mercury sable brake light on replaced pads and checked fluids


With the vehicle off, turn the key to the on position and see if there is an ABS light (usually yellow/amber). If so, the brake light is related to the emergency brake and the rear calipers aren't done correctly. If no ABS light, the brake light is most likely the indicator for the ABS system. a sensor is most likely unplugged, damaged or just knocked out of calibration with the ABS drum.

The ABS light stays on, what is that. and do it need immediate assistance.


The ABS light being on will turn off the anti Lock Function. You will only have regular non-ABS braking on your vehicle. O'Reillys Autoparts should scan your system for free, at least you will then know how much it will cost to fix. Hope this helped...

Front brakes keep locking up i have already this week changed both front calipers brake flex lines the abs light on and stays on what is wrong now


OK, the abs light being on will mean that the ABS (Antilock Braking System) is disabled completely.

That means, that the front wheels will lock up instead of pulsing like normal under a lock up condition at the rate of 5 or 6 pulses a second.

I think that you need to look at broken connections to the wheel speed sensors, or possible replacement of speed sensors after scanning the OBD-II ABS data link with an ABS Brakescan tool such as Actron's ABS Brakescan Tool which is made just for this purpose and sells for around $100 plus shipping off of Amazon.com.

I think that Plain English explanations are available on this tool that will point you in the right direction as to which wheel(s) or circuitry to look at.

Good luck on this repair.

When the ABS light comes on what part of the engine is involved.


The Anti-Lock Brake system. Check your manual to see if you may experience "temporary failure" of ABS. My '89 RX-7 Turbo would "fail" if brakes overheated. If light is on and stays on, it's a more significant problem.
