You have 3 separate issues. First is the check engine light. This is set due to a fault in an emissions related component. Need to have the system scanned for fault codes and diagnosed. Brake light if it is not saying ABS/Tracs would indicate either low fluid level or a loss in hyd pressure on one of the brake circuits. Have the brakes inspected. If the high beam indicator light is on and will not go off by cycling the turn signal lever then the relay is stuck/shorted. You need a garage to resolve these issues.

The 1998 70 series Volvo is famous for the ABS control unit going bad. The codes ususally found are bad pump motor or r/f wheel sensor. There are a number of rebuilders in the US that are much cheaper than the 600 dollar new factory unit. Some ABS codes will not reset with a code reader

Codes can be removed from most mechanics with a code reader, they can check and reset them for you, bear in mind these lights came on for a reason, ask the mechanic what did the codes signify. Good luck

How do i reset abs light on 2001 dodg caravan

Most ABS sensor problems are due to dirt accumulation on the face of the sensor, a cracked "tone" ring, bad connections inside the electrical connectors, or an break in the wiring harness.

Start by wiping all the metallic particles off the face of the sensor with a dry rag. Then check the notched tone ring with a bright light and magnifying glass to look for cracks. Then disassemble each electrical connector and look for corrosion, oil accumulation, or bent pins. Reassemble. Then take it for a spin to see if it resets.

Is they're a recall on any parts of a Pontiac gt

There is a problem in the ABS. The problem must be repaired before the service engine light can reset or go out. There is no recall on the ABS.

How to reset the check engine light and the abs light and the airbag light

Probably the 3 are independent of each other:
the check engine would come if there is an issue with the system control in the engine.
The ABS is related to the breaking system, either a sensor malfunction,dirt acummulation or a broken fuse.
Same thing with the SRS/Airbag especially if the car it's been in a middle to big accident, so looks like you need to have the car scan.

Igot a vauxhall astra 1.8 sri igot a light cum on the dash its a car with a spanner threw it when on the engine idles bad

This is your mechanical fault light and the lack of power is the car going into limp mode to protect the engine and its components.
Have a garage run a diagnostic check to find the fault code and the fault.
Hope this helps

My 2002 Tribute ABS Light & Break Light are both illuminated: break pads and rear drums were replaced march 2011: i know abs is tied in with the break system: what could this possibly mean for break...


if both lights are on together the car needs to be checked by a professional immediately.

it could be as simple as a loose connection after the work done in march, but both lights together could also mean a MAJOR fault in the ABS system that could result in loss of brakes.

an ABS system is not something that is servicable yourself.
it needs professional diagnostic equipment.

i can only recommend that you drive as little as possible, and get the car checked as soon as you can.

Abs light emergency light stay on

Hi, You should check for a sligt break fluid leak from the break light switch (attacked to the master cylinder). Yeah, I know this seems strange, but on my 2001 this leak caused all types of problems with lots of dashboard indicators. The leaking switch was a recall for Ford Trucks, but not the minivans. Hope this helps
