Check your ABS sensor on your wheel hub. The ABS sensor may be going bad or needs to be re gaped. You can do the work your self to save you some money, Take the front wheel off and look for your ABS sensor, There is going to be a wire harness along your upper A arms, just follow it to the wheel hub. Give it a good spray with brake parts cleaner and re gap it closer to the speed ring on the wheel hub. If you don't have a feeler gap, you can use a dime as the gap reference. After your have done all that and you still have the problem, you can go to the dealer and have them look up if there was a recall campaign for the ABS activating during low speed stops. Good luck and keep me posted Be glad to help.

hi it could be any one of those you have mensioned but i would suggest the most likely cause would be that the brake pads have completley worn down and are just working metal on metal so you need to get the pads changed sooner rather than later.
Also the brakes being gone would also cause the light to come on as the abs wouldnt function properly with the pads worn off.
The first thing i would do is get the brakes checked as you wil probably find this is the cause of your problem as you say the pedal is hard to press this would suggest that the pads do need changing if it is the brakes then this is the cheapest of all the options you mentioned above.
So please get the brakes checked as at the moment it might just be that the pads need replacing but driving around to long will cause you to put grooves into the disks themselves and these are expensive to replace so get it check soon as you can.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It's so much easier to hook up a scanner to read the ABS codes than trying to guess, the brake lite comes on when the fluid is low or your e-brake is on, only takes one click to activate the light.

Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
