Disengage the parking brake, and at the same time before releasing lever lift parking brake pedal with foot. or if hand brake make sure fully down...? If that fixes it, verify the indicator switch is not loose.

Another check may be to verify brake fluid level in reservoir...

My abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will not shut off i have replaced rotors and pads what could the problem be


The warning light indicates that there is a malfuction in the anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Normally the system will then cease to function so you have a conventional braking system with no anti-lock feature to engage if you lock up the wheels on braking.

This ABS fault warning has nothing to do with the condition of the pads and rotors so renewing them, which is essential for good braking performance, will not solve the problem.

You will need to take the vehicle to a mechanic with the correct equipment to diagnose the cause of the ABS warning. It may be as simple as a failed ABS sensor (or sensors) and that is what I would be checking first.

It is quite safe to drive the vehicle with the ABS disengaged because your brakes will operate normally. What you don't have is the ABS kicking in to release the brake pressure temporarily in the event you brake hard and lock up any of the wheels.

We just purchased a 2004 Ford Focus. When we bought it the ABS light was on and figured since the brakes worked great....it wasn't a huge deal...got an excellent deal on the car. Later while driving...


You have an ABS System failure

Could and hopefully will only be a Wheel Speed Sensor

Next time educate yourself, and don't buy a vehicle
that needs repair.

If your going to buy a 10 year old Ford, buy a lincoln or mercury
full size, so you got something to work on that will last

My ABS light and emergency brake light comes on everytime I start my Ford Windstar, and they stay on when I'm driving around, even though my brakes are not on. Anyone have any idea what this means?


I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Blinking Orange Exclamation Point on 04 4runner


Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:

1999 Saturn SL
Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.

04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.

I hope this helps.

ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND DISENGAGES THE ABS BUT


When the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. Meaning, when the abs is light is on and you brake, the tires will lock up with heavy braking.

Escapes have a common issue of the ABS excitor rings cracking causing ABS problems. Sometimes it activates on almost every brake application. It may set a code in the ABS computer for an intermitten wheel speed sensor or no wheel speed signal. Check all the "rings" on the outside of all four axleshafts. If none of the rings are cracked it is likely a bad ABS wheel speed sensor.

Focus, esp is not working and the abs and hand brake lights on


Either the system needs servicing or something has gone wrong with the brake system (YOU STILL HAVE REGULAR BRAKE OPERATION THOUGH). Check brake fluid, fuses, and try disconnecting the battery and leaving it for about a half hour. Hope this helps.
