The traction control uses the same sensors as abs, could be a sensor or even a wheel bearing, get the brakes inspected

Brake pedal loosing pressure

Honda had two brake reservoirs one on the normal brake master cylinder the other on the ABS module. If abs fuse has no power the module has no power. that power comes from the main fuses in underhood fuse box. the abs system is supplement system to normal braking system loss of brake pedal is a air problem or drum brake adjustment problem or a loose wheel bearing pushing the caliper piston back into caliper requiring more fluid to get brake to work causing a low pedal.

Vw jetta vr6 battery and ABS light on

You could have an error code that caused the engine to shut off but that is really rare. There are a lot of things that cause the abs light to come on. Brake wear, faulty brake components, and/or sensors, reservoir levels.

Has it ever happened before? Has it happened again since the first time?

There's a service bulliten about that problem with rust build-up on the front hubs pushing the sensors out of posistion [ most common on the pickups in areas that use road salt ], it happens mostly at very low speed. The best way to find out the problem is to have the system scanned.

The ABS light came on the car stop for a minute after a while I cut the car back on and it started. what is a ABS and where is it located on a ford taurus 1996 car.

The "ABS" or Anti-lock Brake System is exactly that. When the brake pedal is pressed in a harsh or panic manner the "ABS" senses the tires locking up or skidding. It releases just enough brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate thereby giving control back to the driver. It allows the shortest stopping distance. The "ABS" control module will be located next to the Brake Master Cykinder in the engine compartment and attached by steel brake lines. If the "ABS" light is coming on then the system is malfunctioning and should be checked as soon as possiable.

Abs light comes on trackion light shuts off and while driving brake pedal goes to floor... what could this be causing this problem

If your ABS light is on then you will have to get the codes read to see what sensor is giving you the problem.The ABS light being on will also affect the traction control and brake pedal going to floor.Auto Zone will check codes but I`m not sure if they do ABS codes.They don`t charge so it wouldn`t hurt to ask.After you get the codes you can post back and I can help you find the problem.Good luck.

My abs light comes on and my trackion light shuts off and the pedal goes to the floor . Ihave new breaks and there is no problem , this is on a 2000 pontiac grand prix what could it be and is it safe to...

If the brake pedal goes to the floor with the car off, I would suspect air in the system or some other issue with the service brakes. If you feel and hear a growl in the pedal when it goes to the floor then your abs controller may be at fault. There are many possibilities. In either case if your pedal goes to the floor, then you are looking at a safety issue. Generally the service brake system (regular brake system) is the fault and not the abs. I have however seen a sticking dump valve or faulty wheel speed sensor cause an abs issue. Start with the basics first. Leaky wheel cylinders/ calipers, brake lines, or master cylinder. Verify the hydraulic integrity of the service brakes before tackling an abs issue.

Take it back, they obviously messed up something. It could be the axle/cv joint or they bent one or two brake disk(s). It could be they did't install the calipers correctly, missing parts.
