ABS light an dhand brake light on permanently in V reg Honda Acco

Started coming on for while after car ran for few miles and warmed up. Had new brake pads fitted - problem persisted. Took it to local dealer who advised their machine could not "talk" to on board computer and advised i would need a new on board computer so that they could then assess why the abs and hand brake lights were on. Took it to 2 electrics companies who couldn't get their machines to connect with on board computer. have been advised could need new modulator (very expensive) ir could be loose wiring which could be checked when they disconnect modulator. Have just been advised to disconnect battery and then reconnect which may reset the problem. car runs perfectly. any suggestions?

Try to locate the break centering switch. Should be able to follow lines to it. Look under reservoir then just follow lines until you find a small black box with wires coming out of it. Your mechanic should have reset this when he replaced pads...but does not make him bad because he didn't. Sometimes the it requires cleaning also; :)

Abs & brake light coming on randomally on 2002 dodge durango


Take it to Auto Zone or other parts store and have them run a free diagnostics scan. Then reply with the code. If no codes are present, you can start checking the front abs sensors. I dont believe there are rear sensors on these models.

While driving slowly downhill in the snow I started to stop and my abs, trac, and service lights came on. They were off the next time I started my car but come on after driving a few miles every time I use...


You may have ice build-up in the brakes casusing the ABS to engage- [ the traction and service light will both come on with the ABS. Check to see if you have ice.

1995 oddessy abs light is on


ABS failures are common in the Honda Accord and the Honda Odyssey, especially during the 1995-1997 years. You will find that your ABS light will come on intermittently and then go out. Finally, the light will come on and stay on until the system is replaced. Honda has been charging owners about $1500 to replace the modulator and accumulator. Honda maintains that this is not a problem that is widespread. The Honda owners' notes show that the problem usually happens betwee n 50,000 miles and 100,000 miles. There is a buzzing associated with the system failing, too.--------------
try bleeding the ABS brake pump and check. You must bleed the abs pump, then reset the abs computer by removing the ABSB2 fuse.--------------

When i start my car it just cuts off again this happens a few times then works fine, also after a few miles of driving the abs warning light comes on my car is an N reg audi A4 automatic 1.8


Hi, I had the same problem. it is the imoboliser, it reads a code in your key while starting. you need to get the code in the key reprogramed. if that wont work you will need to get a new ignition barrel. Audi dealer will reprogram your key.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

ABS pump failure


Hi,
The problem is the solonoids inside the modulator are stuck, all you need to do is!!! Clear the code, than drive car while no abs light is on than lock the car a few times on wet road. The will help to free up the solonoids. Do this about 10 times, brake fluid is the only parts needed!!! Call me at 302 529 7888 if you like!!!
