Open the engine compartment, on the driverside there is a white or clear resevoir mounted to a circular black metal object. This is the brake bluid resevoir, there should be a visible measuring guage on the side. Typically when the fluid is low, the emergency brake indicator light will be lit on the dash. With the ABS light lit, you have a malfunction with the ABS system. Possible wheel speed sensors or ABS actuator problem. Hopefully this helps

Just open your hood and the reservoir will be on the drivers side on the fire wall. It may be caked with fluid on the side but it will have lines for max and min. It should be between that point, if its low, you either have a leak or you need to do brakes.

My 2000 isuzu trooper abs light is on. the scanner at autozone won't read it. any ideas

When mine came on it was the main computer system for the antilock breaking system - very expensive to fix. Needed the main componet that sensored the breaks & fluid to the breaking syserm - cost 2800.00 for the part alone then the labor on top of that.

Break and abs light on

If your abs and brake light are on, first check to make certain that there is enough fluid in the brake reservoir. Next, you will have to check the abs sensors on each wheel for damage. Generally, the sensors are easily found because they are attached to a wire near your cv joints. If your sensor are ok, then the next probable cause could be a ring(s) on your cv joint(s) has damaged and require replacing the entire cv joint. Also, if your check engine light is on, have the light read for possible codes.

Good Luck

2000 x-terra, ABS light is on, what does this mean?

The most common problem is the failure of a wheel sensor or the plate that is detected by the sensor is fouled with crud. You need to check the sensors at each wheel and look for any visible damage to the sensor head or cable.

Can you check if there is still brake fluid in the reservoir? Check on the abs pump as well I think they do have a separate resevoir for brake fluid as well.

Abs on dashboard stays lit all the time.

The only way to know axactly what happen is with a diagnostic computer.
Because the ABS use a Speed sensor on each of the wheels.
Hydraulic selenoids on the ABS box or Module..
If the light is on. its mean the Anti Lock Brake System is inactive., You gonna brake like any car with no ABS.
I hope this information work for you.
