2000 Mazda 626. The ABS light is on all the time. Where are the wheel sensors located? What do they look like? I am thinking that they might just need cleaning.

The computer thing just under the motor is possibly faulty as that controls the abs. I bought a capella with no abs light on at all on start up because someone had taken out the bulb to hide the problem. Had a 2nd hand computer (sorry can not remember the right description for it) put in from a 323 and seems to be working okay? The comps are prone to getting moisture in them because of their position in the car.

That is unlikely, They are tucked inside the CV hub on the inside of the CV joints. Suggest that the vehiclke needs "scanning" as dirt cannot really get in where they are located.

PS = You may want to try disconnecting the battery for 15 min, reconnect, Sometimes works.

WARNING = Ensure your stereo code is handy to re-enter to get stereo to work. If you havnt got it do not try this.

Mazda 626 (2000) ABS light comes on sometimes

This is most likely caused by an erratic wheel speed sensor when the car is turned on it does a abs system check. When the light goes on and off it is because probblem only shows up when wheel speed sensor signal is vaulty. Since you just did the front brakes and know the problem started, it is most likely that the sensor got damaged or misaadjusted. The other thing you need to check is, the sensor is magnetic and can catch alot of debris, like metal shavings from a freshly turned rotor or other metal particles. I would see if there clean and the reluctors are clean to, also check connection and wire make sure it was not damaged. The other thing that can happen but is least likely is that, materials can be pushed into the hydraulic control module. This happens by forcing the piston to the very bottom without opening the bleeder valve since, this is where dirt and corrosion usually accumulates.

Mazda 626 1999 Gxi - abs light comes on

Sounds like a dry caliper(if disc brakes) or dry wheel cylinder (if drum). Some times a good cleaning goes a long way but may take some disassembling to do it.
