SOURCE: abs brake warning light comes on and rear brakes remain stuck on

I would bypass abs contraption with new line.(87 dually) abs located under drivers side cab looks very susceptible and is known to fail.I would trust my foot before that old thing.Im rippin it out of my truck & replacing it with new line all the way back.Old lines rusted pretty bad.Better safe than sorry.unplug light bulb or just leave it in .Jersey cant say anything if its 94 or older at inspection.that goes for all the lights.For me,older is better.I dont know what setup you have or if you sold it, you could try replacing it for about 160 at advanced.I hope its not the computer screwin up,thats probably a dealer item.Try unpluging hydraulic unit for shits & giggles.Go over rear brakes again before you start cutting.

SOURCE: 2004 focus brake & ABS light on

Ok the reason I ask is that will help to pinpoint the concern. See ABS system when you first turn the ignition on will do a self test on itself,light turns on for a few seconds then turns off if everything proves out. Then when you start driving once you reach about 12 mph it will activate the pump and perform a 2nd self test.If everything is ok light stays off,if it see's a problem it turns on the light and disables the ABS.
Since yours comes on after you start driving then problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor concern. Since you just did a rear brake job and the problem started after this I would say it is one of the rear sensors.You need to look at the sensors and make sure the sensor and ring look ok and that you didn't get grease or dirt in the teeth of the sensor ring or maybe bent the end of one of the sensors and make the gap larger between sensor and ring.

Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.

SOURCE: My 2006 F150 abs light

It sounds like you might be having a problem with your Electronic control module. Are the only codes coming up just for the sensor? Have you recently cleaned your engine or driven in very wet weather? If so, water could have gotten into your connections at the modules and causing odd codes. I hope this helps. Jay

SOURCE: 99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front

When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.

ABS light is on and 4x4 high flashing. Noise when making a sharp turn


Sounds like you have a brake problem or a bad wheel bearing. If it makes a noise should get it checked out. My ABS light came on and I had to replace my rear wheel bearing as it made a noise also . Your ABS light is lit by a sensor in the wheels.telling you something is wrong.

Just replaced right rear bearing now abs light comes on after short drive


inspect the hub and the rotor. is the ABS sensor/ wheel speed sensor properly fitted in? there maybe a possibility that the bearing was not insert properly and the rotor is now seated in an "off-center" position giving faulty readings to the ABS control module

Speed Sensor (ABS Sensor) on my 02 Camaro (Passenger side rear) is shaved down. ABS thumps while driving and making right turns.


Most likely you have a defective ABS sensor which is part off the front bearing assembly. you will need have or if you have a code reader capable of reading abs codes find the wheel that is causing the code. Then source the part and if you have the ability to replace it replace it. The code/ light should go out when the abs signal is getting correct information.

Get in there with a scan tool that can read data and codes. Pull the code. Look at the ABS data related to that code. That's the first step in diagnosing the problem correctly. The code doesn't tell you what part to replace; it gives a direction to go with diagnosis. Otherwise you're just shooting in the dark and wasting money guessing at it. If you verified for sure that you've got a bad wheel speed sensor and replaced the correct one, newer GM vehicles won't clear out an ABS light until it sees the vehicle move, and the sensor starts reading speed correctly. Usually it needs to see speeds above 25 miles an hour before the lights will clear out- IF you've correctly diagnosed and replaced a bad wheel speed sensor.

My service traction light is one and my abs light is on


The abs makes the traction control work so fix the ABS first. The most common thing thea haqppens are the wheel speed sensers fail. In the front wheels the speed senser is incorperated into the front wheel bearing. these bearings are well known to fail at about 100 thousand miles and can fail aqs early as 80 thousand miles and most all of them fail before 140. You might notice a roaring sound ( like noisiy treaded tires) You can jack up one front wheel at a time and get in the car as your driving it and put the car in gear and run the car ( not moving but thwe trie is turing and listen for noise. I fht e wheel makes a roaring sound that gets worse as you go faster that wheel bearing is bad. Don't go over about 50 as with one tire on the groung the other that is turning, is going twice that fast or 100 MPH at 50 on the speedometer. Do the same test on the other wheel and if it's quiter or quite just change the noisy one. Once changed you just drive the car and the new wheel speed senmser will be reconized and the ABS light will go out as will the trac off light. If your ready to change both wheel bearings do so as they both have the same miles on them just not nessarily the same potholes and other rough pavement that makes them wear out faster. If thebearings are quite then you need to inspect the wires coming outr of the back of the wheel bearing.. Thjese wires get into troble and get unplugged or break the wire. If you havwe asscess to a scasnner that will address ABS systems it'll point out the ABS problem. Things that happen other than the wheel speed sensers are fuses blown for other reasons. The accumulater motor failure or extreamly cold weather the accumulate motor locks up in cold and blows the fuse. Thwe motors seldom fail but they can and do. Some veicals are nerer serviced and the brake fluild accumulates moisture ( as it's supossed to) and peaple never get the brakeing system seviced and the old brake fluild can freeze in cold weather and start croduing things. The Traction control sysem uses the brakes to control wheel spin by puting on the brake on the spinning wheel. If the system notices a wheel spinning. (Using the wheel speed sensers) So until the ABS is fixed don't try to fix the traction control system as it truly is part of the ABS systyem.

Would sooner think wheel bearing,should be able to hear the noise or feel play in the bearing if jacked up. Abs light on? often a bad bearing will get metal in the sensor and turn on the ABS light also.

I have a 2000 Audi TT Quattro (180). Both my ABS and ESP light were on. I took it to my local garage who replaced a front wheel sensor which eliminated the ABS light. After a 30 mile drive the ESP light...


Check bearing and joint/knuckle on every wheel and even on the drive shafts, if there is lack/knocking, that could cause abs and esp light, because sensor doesnt give right information and ecu only records sensor fault but doesnt say why the infromation is wrong.
They changed the sensor but didnt solve the cause!!!

Buick rendevousz headaches


I own the 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX and I've encountered the same problems listed here. The ABS / Traction Control Lamp stays on and was throwing a code for the left wheel speed sensor as well as an anti-lock brake code (both in the wheel bearing hub assembly). I replaced the left and right front wheel hub assembly yet this did not eliminate the abs codes. 
Ultimately, I traced this problem to a break in the wire that leads to the left hub assembly. Although the sensor was properly connected, the wire (which is encased in a plastic housing) was broken. This is the wiring which leads from the abs wiring harness under the hood down to the left wheel abs sensor. 
I would suggest that you simply remove the left wheel and inspect the wire that leads to the abs sensor (there is only one wire on each wheel). Mine literally fell apart when I removed the plastic housing around the wire. I spliced the wire together and put it back in the plastic housing. After this, my abs codes disappeared and my anti-lock brakes began working again!
This is a simple fix that many people spend $1000 + on by replacing the hub assembly which does not fix the problem.
