Speed reading may be a bad vehicle speed sensor or broken / disconnected wire to that sensor ~ it should also light up your check engine light ~ confirm by using a scanner to get a trouble code

abs brakes, similar process ~ need a scanner to find out which sensor went bad or wire disconnected to it or visual inspection of those sensors

1.Why is my break light indicator on dashboard on even when break is not engaged.Note,my break is active and fluid level is ok. 2. Why is my ABS light on and refused go off from dashboard.


Not sure about the Honda setup, but when my Dakota had those lights both lit, it was a bad speed sensor in the system. I had the additional symptom of no speedometer reading until about 30mph.
It seems that the VSS in my system was used at lower speeds by the ABS system to determine when to activate. If the ABS light goes on, many vehicles will also activate the brake light since the two are undoubtedly related.

What is abs and why does shows breaks fault and why is not reading speed


ABS is Automatic Brake system. Brake system is a very important saftey device. This is not DIY. You need to get it repaired by your dealer, or very well trusted repair shop as soon as possible. Drive with care.

I own a 1997 honda civic dx sedan 5 speed. i dont know if my car has ABS.. it doesnt show on dashboard.... how can i know if it has ABS


when you first start your car, all of the lights on the dashboard should light up -- if there is no ABS light there, you probably do not have ABS on your car. The slightly more risky way to test it would be to take the car out on an unused access road and go about 20 to 25 miles per hour, then slam the breaks as hard as you can. If the tires squeal on the road, then you do not have ABS. Please make sure you are going to be safe if you try to test your breaks -- make sure there are no other cars on the road ... make sure the road is wide enough that if your car skids to one side or the other that you will not hit anything ... make sure that your wheels are straight when you hit the breaks so you do not lose control. If you do not have ABS, you should perform a controlled skid ... if you do, your car will not skid, and for just a moment you should feel your breaks take control for you (slight pumping motion of the pedal under your foot).
Generally, if there is ABS in a car, there is a light on the dashboard to warn you when the system is not working properly, so if you don't have a warning light, you don't have ABS.

I have a 99 Discovery II and the Traction Control, Hill Descent Control and ABS lights have suddenly come on. What is the system fault or, in the alternative, how can they be reset?


Can't be reset if your ABS system or some component is faulty. check speed sensor on the wheel bearing, is there any rubbing or dull grinding noise coming from the front wheels? could be the entire bearing and speed sensor assembly has gone bad. this would cause all these faults to appear as that sensor triggers all these events in order to slow your vehicle while it downshifts itself and applies breaking to control the vehicle as a part of the stabilization system. The alternative is that the ABS system is not functioning properly and the trac control and hill decent systems are being deactivated as part of the fault. If the system cant apply breaking then the systems are rendered unavailable. the vehicle will stop but not using ABS just regular breaks. Check all ABS break fuses for damage.

When breaking the abs goes off when you get down to about 5miles


rust build up between your wheel speed sensor and knuckle in 1 or both of your front hubs likely causing vehicle to think lockup has occured at low speeds. replace your faulty wheel speed sensor/s. monitor with scan tool that shows individual wheel speed of front sensors and replace the 1 that does not read the same as the other 2

Dashboard light on not sure it's meaning


Hello!

A sign like this 30450c7.jpg indicates that your parking brake pads(shoes) are worn, and are in need of replacement.

A sign like this 937110c.jpg indicates that there is problem with the ABS system (can be anythig from a faulty wheel speed sensor to a burnt out fuse)
A non functioning ABS could bring the tires to a lock up during extreme braking which could be rather dangerous.

Hope this helps!
