You should check the brake fluid level first. The low level can turn the light on. If your front disc pads and rotors are wearing down they can trip fault light as well. They should be inspected. Auto parts web sites now include wear specs for those parts. Good Luck

My 2005 Chrysler Sebring started and turned off three times now, it just has a blinking red light?


Anti-Lock Warning Light (ABS) - If Equipped This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) described elsewhere in this manual. This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or comes on during driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required, however, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally provided that the BRAKE warning light is not on. If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore the benefit of Anti-Lock Brakes. 24 7 Locksmith Orchard Park NY 716 710 7400 Locksmith Orchard Park NY

Had to brake hard , now the brake and anti-lock lights won't go out


You may be able to turn the light off by using a scanner.
sometimes the light comes on just because you use the system
it may also go off after 20 or 50 starts
You may also have a damaged part keeping the light on.

Sounds like since the park lock and the brake lights are both inoperative, the faulty component would be the brake light switch which should be just above the brake pedal under the dash.

sounds like you are having a short circuit, my guess is something in your ABS unit has failed, if it were me and ANYTHING AT ALL was happening that should not especially with something as important as the brakes on your car, i would get it serviced immediately, you probably shouldnt even drive it to your mechanic but get it towed there instead. any trouble that is brake related is a serious issue.

ABS light came on and also the Advanctrac light....says check ADVtrac.


There are many sensors on your anti-lock brake system, as well as on your traction control system. Sometimes one giving a signal will set off the other one. Unless you are can physically feel any symptoms, then a computer test is really the only way to tell what the problem is. Many auto part stores offer to check the computer, and many of those will do it for free. One you know what the computer says is wrong, you can have the problem repaired. You can still drive your vehicle, but be aware that it is highly possible that your anti-lock function as well as the traction control system may not work. The anti-lock keeps your wheels from locking up if you slam on the brakes. The traction control diverts power and/or uses the anti-lock brake system to reduce braking on a certain wheel. I would imagine that there is a problem with the anti lock brake system since it is used in the traction control system. Hope it turns out to be small!

2004 Endeavor Anti Lock comes on


First disconnect the negative battery terminal for about 15 min's. This resets the computer. Then drive it watch the dash for anything that illuminates. Connect a OBD2 reader to your obd2 port scan for codes. Troubleshoot your car. It really not that hard. Like following a line. Check your brake cpu unit. Get the car manual to. Check how to test the Brake module. If the voltage and ohms are correct. Go to the next part in line, electrically speaking. Find what input and output
location of the ALB system on the PCM (computer). determine what sensor is connected to the PCM and test them. If all ok. Look for a mechanical failure.
