Did you replace the brake pad sensor? If not, it will need to be replaced.

Abs light staying on

The ABS light comes on when there is a malfuntion in the ABS system, not when the brakes are low. On a Ford you more than likely have a dirty sensor or pick up ring on the back side of the rotor. And no you do not have to change the rear drum brakes when changing your front pads but they should be inspected.
Usually you will change 2-3 sets of front pads before the rears need to be changed.

I take it you mean the brake pad wear light is flickering. It is an indication that the brake pads need changing, before they damage the brake discs. A wire fitted to the pad contacts the disc and puts a light on, on the dash. If the pads are ok then there is a wiring fault to earth putting the light on.

ABS brake noise at every braking; Also sometimes the warning lights(AWD Disabled) comes on while driving and other times the lights don' come on;;AWD still works tho.

Sounds like you need new brake pads , when the pads get worn it triggers the warning replace the brake pads reset the computer this should fix the noise and the warning lights.

Brake warning light stays on when turn car on

On this car, I think, the light is dual purpose, it shows up when the parking brake is on and when the wear sensors in the brake pads detect that the pads are too low. It could be that you need new brake pads.

On my renault scnic 05 model i have an warning light and it tells me to check the hand brake which i have done many times but the light will not go out i had let my battery run down in the could spell and...

hi from uk the brake indicator warning light you mention has two functions it indicates thet the h/brake is either on or not fully off ? and is also an indication of the brake fluid level is low this may be either your car has a brake fluid leak ? somewhere or more than likely considering age of car the brake pads/shoes are worn low resulting in the displacement of fluid from reservoir to take up wear of pads operated by calipers/cylinders ? also if pads are low ?thenyour car may have brakepads worn very low indicators on the actual pads these are wires fitted on pads this too is a most probable cause of indicator illuminating ? SO asap check the above i have mentioned b4 you continue driving for any distance

Disk brake warning light stays on even though the disk brakes have been changed, any ideas on how to get the light to go out?

There is a brake pad sensor that should be replaced whenever you replace the brake pads. It’s located inside a whole in the brake caliper of the left front wheel. When this sensor fails, the warning light will come up in your dashboard.

Hope this helps :)

Abs light stays on, have changed the brakepads

Its not your brake pads. It is your ABS system. Only dealers are certified to work on the ABS systems. I would check all of your fuses prior to sending it to the dealership. You probaby have a bad sensor. Have you drove through water over your bumpers? IF so, then just take it to the dealer because you have shorted a sensor.

Hi i have an orange warning light on the but dont know waht it is i dont have a manual it I have a vw passet 2000 the light is a circle with 3 bracket like lines around it in the centre of the dashboard...

On mine i had a circle with some lines around it and it was a brake pad indicator, meaning that the car has determined that you need to replace your brake pads. I have included a link to a picture. your dash may not look like this, but the orange light on the top left is the brake pad indicator light. Hope this helps!

VW passatt warning lights staying on

Check the wires that are going to the brake pad sensors.Some shops will install pads that don't have the sensor connections on them, causing this light to stay lit.
