SOURCE: rear braking

check if this car has load proportioning valves fitted for the rear brakes and working correctly if it is a rear brake slide.if not check A B S sensors and the A B S control unit.if the A B S light comes on when moving it is a sensor problem.if its on with engine on with car stationeryits almost likely to be A B S unit

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1998 dodge

you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps

SOURCE: After driving about ten miles each morning, my abs...

Yes this happened to me. And it is the brakes. Someone probably put it on wrong, or the lugs aren't tight enough. If that isn't it then you need to get tires balanced and rotated because what happens is if you put two new tires on one side and not the other side then the car is off balance and that can cause a lot of issues. It could be related to something else but if this happened as soon as you changed tires then that's the culprit. Hope this helps solve your problem. Put a post up what the problem was so everyone will know. Goodluck!

Hello, one of the ABS sensor on one of the wheels is bad. There are four sensor on your vehicle one for each wheel.

The brake and ABS light both come on when you are receiving no speed signal. Most likely the speed sensor in the top of the rearend is bad.

My ABS light came on, what does that mean?


No need to worry, If you need to wait a while to get it fixed it won't make your van unsafe to drive. What more than likely happened is one of your ABS wheel sensors quit working on you. If you know someone with a Snap On Scanner with the ABS reader cartrage, you can find out wich one is not working. Untill then, you can safely drive, just keep in mind if you do slam on your brakes in the snow or ice, they will lock. It would be like driving an older vehicle without ABS. Anyway, no harm will come to you or your van because of the light on.
Hope this helps!
