It probably means a broken wire at the wheel hub sensor a shop can put it on an ABS scanner for little or no cost to find out where the broken wire is

Meaning of ABS light


On vehicles equipped with antilock brakes (ABS), a second warning light is provided to warn if a problem occurs within the ABS system. The ABS lamp comes on when the ignition is turned on for a bulb check, then goes out after the engine starts. If the ABS warning light remains on or comes on while driving, it indicates a fault has occurred in the ABS system.

What happens next depends on the nature of the fault. On most applications, the ABS system disables itself if the ABS warning light comes on and remains on.

I am driving a 2005 Dodge Caravan and the Abs light has come on. What doe sit mean and what should I do?


It means there is a fault somewhere in your abs system. While the light is on you will not have anti lock brakes. It just means you will resort to the old style of brakes before abs. It will not harm anything .but is something i would have checked out.

T reg renault megane.ABS light and serv light on dashboard are staying on,are the 2 linked or is it 2 seperate problems.can i still drive the car with both dashboard lights on.


All the computers on the car are linked together. The ABS can trigger the service light on some applications, ie speed sensors. You can still drive, but you wont have ABS, meaning if you brake hard enough or in gravel the tires can lock up and skid.

When your abs light comes on it means that something is wrong with you ABS system. Sometimes the abs sensor get durty and can make the ABS light come on in the dash.

Abs light comes on while driving


Hi there,

In the event of the ABS light coming on whilst driving, means the ABS computer has detected either a malfunction, or one of the sensors is not operating as it should.

When the ABS light comes on, the computer will de-activate the ABS function of your braking, and your vehicle will now be operating under normal brakes (i.e. no anti-locking ability) and will now be susceptible to wheel lock-up under extreme emergency braking.

I would highly recommend you have the ABS computer scanned for 'trouble codes'. This will tell you "where" in the ABS system, the fault lies.

It could be anything from a simple wheel sensor needing adjustment, to a faulty pump.

As with all modern vehicles, your respective onboard vehicle computer will 'tell you' where the problem lies.

My low trac light comes on in my car. What does that mean? Its a 1999 chevy calvalier and also it gets hot when the car sits at a light.


If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.
