SOURCE: ABS and anti skid tracking control lights stay on in my BMW 523i

Unfortunately there are several possibilities that are common to causing the light to come on. I would suggest taking the car in to a dealer and having them read out the fault memory. Such possibilities are a failed speed sensor, a binding DSC/ACS actuator cable, or faulty DCS/ASC control unit. If you know how, you can disconnect the speed sensors, and check for voltage output across the the terminals inside the connector going to the speed sensor while rotating the wheel. A dealer should charge you about an 1hour fee to check out your system. Due to the cost of parts involved, I would recommend having it checked before just guessing.

Hi there,
As you say the tacho/speedo come "back up to normal" after the incident, I assume that they either stop working or become erratic while the dash lights are misbehaving.
If so, this sounds like a dash wiring electrical problem.
The O/D OFF light is lit by the switch on the shifter (switch also inputs to the ECU). The ENGINE light is driven also from the ECU but the SLIP light is driven from the ABS/VSC computer, although these two computers do communicate.
Best plan of attack would be interrogate the ECU for error codes or ask a Toyota dealer to do so. At least you'll have some clue to any problems that the ECU's may have picked up.
Contact me about checking for ECU error codes if you want to attempt it yourself. Although the Caldina has an OBDC2 connector, as I understand it it's not 100% compliant, so you'll need a Toyota compatible reader. Fortunately teh codes are also output via the CHECK ENGINE light.
If there's no problems there, I'd be pulling the instrument cluster and checking for wiring problems. I'm not sure where in the world you are but most ex- JDM vehicles could have modified with timers, speed-cut or fuel-cut devices that either have been poorly installed or are playing up and causing electrical problems.

Could have a ABS wheel speed sensor going bad, once this happens will disable the ABS and the trac control. Have it scanned and find out which sensor is bad. Small possibility of ABS module failure, but not as likely.

What is anti-lock braking system on cars?


Anti-Lock Brake systems are all essentially the same they will prevent the driver form applying 100% Brake pressure and locking up the wheels while driving. The ratchet the pressure more slowly to prevent the car from skidding. Our first reaction in an emergency is to slam on the brakes and that is 90% of the time not the right action. So Anti-Lock brakes are designed to prevent this unwanted skid.

Parking Brake, ABS, Traction Control & Anti Skid lights on


One or more of the sensors in the wheels that are responsible for these functions is faulty. It is sending a signal that is mucking up the calculations that control the brakes and engine for traction control and anti skid. All of them need to be checked!

The awd light and oil light stay on and toggle back and forth. Also my anti skid light stays on all the time.


You will need the dealer to scan the control module to see what is going on, there is nothing you can do to repair this without special skills and tools.

While driving ABS light came on and car went into a skid, what could have happened?


Abs Light:
If its glowing momentarily while driving in slick conditions then its normal operation..
But if it stays glowing even under dry pavement then there is a problem with your anti lock brake and traction control system..
It happens commonly of wheel speed sensor which malfunctions..
Try to access the data in the anti lock brake module to find out which one malfunctions..

The anti lock light stays on all the time. Mechanic wants over $500 to fix. What can I do?


Depending on your financial situation, you can drive it like it is for now. You will not have any protection from the anti-skid as far as its control of your braking, but the brakes will work just like the old brakes where the driver controlled them. I am not recommending you drive indefinately, but in most cases the anti-skid light just means that it has detected a failure in the anti-skid system and had relinquished control of the brakes back to the driver.

My daughter has a Volvo S40 (2006). The Power System Service Urgent light with a red triangle with an exclamation mark and the Battery sign with plus and minus signs came on. She kept driving and then...


This occurred to me the other day. They thought it was the alternator and battery, but nothing. What was the problem with her car. Please help, I'm going nuts trying to figure this out!

ANTI LOCK BRAKES WORK SOME TIMES AND MESS UP OTHER


ABS has a sensor which is basically like a metal blade which sticks into the tire attachment into grooves.As the tire turns,the blade senses the RPM.When you brake suddenly,the sensor tells the computer when your tire is about to skid and releases brake pressure.It applies and releases brake pressure very quickly so as not to cause a skid.One of these may be going bad.A computer check can tell you quickly,but you probably know about computer application pricing.If you want to buy one and switch tires every couple days you could probably find out,but it would be very tedious.Good luck.
