What is the warning light that looks like a light bulb with a exclamation point in the middle of it mean?


That bulb is warning you of a potentially dangerous situation. Your manual will tell you what the light is for and then you check out that particular part of the car.

ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

Brake fluid light on 2001 Pontiac aztek is on, bell is chiming. Fluid is full. How do we get the light and chiming to stop?


You have a brake pressure problem, which is potentially dangerous. Your master cylinder may be going bad , leaking internally, and is not supplying the correct pressure to the calipers , or the distribution valve may be bad and the braking pressure is not even on each wheel ... Abs system could also be at fault.. The chiming is a warning of impending danger. Get this fixed as soon as possible before you have an accident.

You are an authorized repair company for the machine called Superfrecator 6800 that removes moles and skin tags etc???


This machine is usually sold to beauticians and day spas through a line of distributors and I could not find any factory contact information. It is also worth noting that although the sales information states that "most" moles and skin tags are "safe to remove" with this machine, most physicians and dermatologists say that is it dangerous to attempt to remove any skin lesions without a proper diagnosis and evaluation by a licensed practitioner.

How to disable abs light


The ABS light normally illuminates to indicate that the ABS module is out of parameter, which may indicate a POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS CONDITION. Usually, replacing the ABS module will cure the condition, and the ABS warning light will turn off.
