Most common item is a faulty speed sensor,or broken speed sensor wire.
get a scan done.the computer will tell exactly if it is the abs pump or a sensor.
the abs pumps are very expensive.

ABS light on, brake light, transmission erratic and speedometer jumpy?


Sounds like more than one problem, but make sure brake fluid is up first. Then check your tranny fluid after you fill brake fluid. You never want to run low on brake fluid, otherwise you won't have any brakes.

Abs and brake lights on 2006 amanti


Ok if you have brake light on the dash and an abs light then you will need to check some things frist make sure the rear brake lights are all working then check the fluid in the master cylinder and fill it but only to full line check all fuses if all of theme are ok you will have to have it scanned to find out if it's a speed sensor or the pump.

ABS LIGHT AND BRAKE LIGHT ARE ON


Check the brake fluid level and add if needed. If the fluid is low ...I would inspect the brake system. Inspect brake pad thickness and check for any brake fluid leaks. If the fluid is full and the abs light is still on..the code or codes will need to be retrived from the ABS Module to determine what part of the system is having a fault.

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 system is leaking hydraulic fluid, but the rest of the braking system seems to be ok. But since both the front, back and ABS system draw fluid from the master cylinder, it empties out and leaves...


Nope - the master cylinder sends fluid to the ABS system, which then the fluid is sent to the brakes. It's all one system - you cannot eliminate the ABS without rerouting the brake lines to bypass it.

1995 pontiac bonneville brack system warning light and chime on.


Be aware that if the (BRAKE!) light is on you are probably low on brake fluid and while your brakes are still working properly, there is a possible fluid leak somewhere that is going to causse them to not work at all. When this light is on it is serious. Although the sensor in the master cylinder that tells this light to come on is probably the answer, as they tend to malfunction in your vehicle. Check your brake fluid immediately, and fill it if it is legitimately low.
If the (ABS) brake light is on it is probably an ABS speed sensor in the vehicle that is bad, If the abs light is on have a service center do a diagnostic scan to verify which sensor is bad.
