SOURCE: 94 dodge ram pickup. ABS & parking brake

I don't know of any reset switch for the abs system. I would check the wheel sensors and make sure none are broken. Make sure the fluid level is correct and that none of the plugs are undone on the module under the hood by the master cylinder.

SOURCE: Park brake light flashes 10 times. For 1989 Chevy

This truck probably has Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brakes. There is a small black module near master cylinder that is the brain for this system. There are ways to check for diagnostic trouble codes in this system. Once you have any codes set, diagnosis can be fairly simple. PROCEDURE:
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) 's can be displayed by jumping terminals "A" and "H" of the Data Link Connector and observing the flashing of the "BRAKE" warning light. This should only be done when the brake lamp is "ON".
The terminals must be jumped for about 20 seconds before the code will begin to flash. Count the number of short flashes starting from the long flash. Include the long flash as a count. Sometimes the first count sequence will be short. However, subsequent flashes will be accurate. If there is more than one failure, only the first recognized code will be retained and flashed.

DTC's 6, 9 and 10 will only turn the "BRAKE" lamp on while the fault exists. These are soft codes faults and can only be read with the Tech 1 scan tool.
Do not jump terminals "A" to "H" if the "BRAKE" lamp is not on. Jumping the terminals with the "BRAKE" lamp off will set a false DTC 9. This will turn the "BRAKE" lamp on and disable the antilock system.

    SOURCE: emergency brake sticking.....i think. Mazda B4000 pickup

    Are you sure it is the emergency brakes?Or is it a caliper stuck,because it is bad,or the caliper brake hose is stopped up?Jack the wheels up,one at a time,and try to see if they will turn by hand.This will tell you if it is front,or rear.If it is the emergency brake,then the cable from the front,to the bake,is most likely the problem,it is rusted ,and frayed,and stuck,you will have to disconnect it at the rear,from the brakes.If this helps,let us know,If it is the calipers,in the front,the wheels will not turn by hand.Brake loose the caliper bleed screw,and if the caliper turns the wheel loose,then the brake hose is bad,if it does not ,then the caliper is bad on that wheel.

    Abs light stays on

    The ABS light comes on and stays on when the Antilock Braking System (ABS) isn't working right. You should get it checked out. You don't want the brakes to fail.

    ABS light and parking brake light stays on 1997 nissan hardbody pickup

    Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir.
    Low brake fluid level can cause both lights to come on and stay on

    2001 chevy S-10 pickup parking brake will not stay down

    I too, have had problems with my '01 s10 parking brake. This brake is not like other vehicals. The regular brake pedal needs to be pressed down before the parking brake can stay down. Same with it being released. It is explained more clearly in your owners manual. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

    My speedometer stopped working ,my abs light stays on and my check engine light stays on and the brake light stays on

    Check the "tone wheel" and magnetic pickup that sends the signal to the speedo, also to the ABS, and possibly integrated into the brakes for brake light.

    It is one magnetic pickup that controls these three lights. As far as Engine goes, get the car to an Autozone (if it is safe to drive) and they will check all your codes, including check engine, with their scanner for free and identify the location of the problem for you for FREE!.

    Hope this helps.

    Brake light on dash stays on. Is it the brake switch?

    Do two things check your brake fluid and then check the switch for the parking brake. The switch may be stuck or shorted causing the light to stay on.

    1996 S-10 abs light stays on ,back right wheel

    You have to check the caliper for the wheel that is locking up. It is probably stuck. Jack up the truck and see if the wheel turns. If it turn hard are not at all then take the brake caliper and try to turn it back in. If the caliper has natches on the cup then they need to be turned in. If they are flat then they can be pushed in.
