Most likely ABS module needs rebuilding. This can be done for about 300 bucks or less thru ModuleMaster.com. But first be sure no fuses are blown. The proper way to test this is check for power and a ground at the ABS module. A professional can do this for you. Since the light is on your car is operating without the ABS funtion. You can remove the module, wrap the connectors and base assembly to prevent moisture and dirt from fouling them. Then ship the unit. You can still drive the truck. The brake will not have the anti skid capabilities but most old cars dont have this anyways. When the module is returned just plug it bak in and drive. Light should reset itself.

I HAVE JUST PURCHASED Toyota Yaris 1.0l reg FE52 ACV. Question;- does the car have ABS


a easy way to tell for sure is to turn ur steering wheel to the left ur left front wheel will be pointing out, look between the tire and the inner fender well.dont forget a light. u will see a black rubber hose from the body of the car to the brake caliper it is about 1 foot long an around a half inch thick..this is the brake hose..now if u have abs there will also be a thin black wire from the body of the car connected almost in the center of the part where the brake hose is connected this is ur abs electrical wire...some people will tell u to turn the car to the run position( when all the lights r on on the dash board) but if ur abs light is burnt out u wont know for sure

ABS light on in my 2005 Mazda Tribute. Just had an oil change and tire rotated. Also steam cleaned the engine yesterday. The brake fluid is low. I will try filling that.


You do not steam clean any engines from
1985 on, or you will have problems with water
intruding electical connectors & more

Brake fluid won't be low
As the pads wear & caliper piston moves out,
fluid level goes down,not an issue

The ABS light you should already know is a Vehicle
System Malfunction & we have had those or similar
lights on the dash of all vehilces for 30 years
So nothing new at all. Check for codes,diagnose &
have the ABS Braking System repaired

My abs light keeps going on and off and have no break lights ??


I will assume your familiar with most lights
you get on your dash. They have been there for 30 years

The ABS is your braking systems electrical part,
that has issues or problems. I will assume you know that
as well

Also the brake lights while electrical is not ABS
related, different problem to work on.

Both these issues need to be diagnosed & repaired

You can not use the vehicle with no brake lights &
the abs will need professional help to resolve,
such as a repair shop with test equipment

Abs fault lights up on dash and feels like brakes are dragging constant


I had a 96 tahoe and my abs light was on and my right front brake was dragging, i found that it was the abs speed sensor that was causing the problem. Once i replaced it abs light went out and no more drag. I know there's a big year diffrence here, i dont think the way this all works has changed much. Hope this helps.

2006 Town & Country ABS light stays on


when the abs light comes on your car is letting you know that it has shut down the abs system because of a problem. so you are braking with regular conventional brakes which is perfectly safe. any time a component of the antilock brake system malfuntions the abs system is shut off and the light will come on to let you know. the most common problem is that the wheel speed sensors go bad. a trouble code will be stored in the abs control module you can have the abs module scanned to see what the problem may be. But dont worry you car is safe to drive. you just dont have the antilock brake option.
