    a flashing brake light means there's a serious fault with your brake system. Don't drive it and have it towed to a garage... Your brakes can fail without any further warning

Hyundai trijet just had abs ring changed on passenger front now abs light stays on and hand break light stays on. Help.


If a wire was broken replacing the reluctor ring, this would be the ABS light. Not the brake light. Check the brake fluid, check the E brake pedal/handle. The rings do break, I just weld them back in place. If they are gone, it gets a new axle.

Abs light stays on and is flashing a i think acode


hi Robert

you can check the ABS fault code as following:

switch ignition on and wait for the abs light to start to flash.
it will flash in long and short flashes, long flash stands for ten, short flash stands for one, there is a short pause in between, and long pause after each code, take a note of the code and Google it
good luck

Traction control night and brake light on 2008 trailblazer


First, check to see if your ABS and your TCS fuses are good. A lot of times, if both lights come on, it senses a failure in the braking system. Your vehicle will disable the abs if it finds a problem in the braking system, hence the red brake light/hand brake light coming on in the dash. Get a code scanner that also reads the abs module. You could have a bad wheel sensor, which is tied to your TCS and your ABS system. Either that, or you ABS module could be bad.

Abs and hand brake light stays on


wheel speed sensor data may not be getting to t e abs control module.
The hand brake light may stay on if the hand brake is not fully retracted or the cable is loose.

Check brake fluid level to make sure you have enough in the master cylinder.

Bmw 520i 1999 abs/asc lights on diagnostic


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Yes. Both lights usually come on when there is an ABS problem detected whereas the brake light will usaully only come on by itself with the hand brake or low fluid.

Abs


This is Simply the Computer System Letting you know that there has been an Unusual Action. If it was a Mechanical Problem it would stay on Constant and Flash Periodically.
