Constant ABS light?

How do you get a code for an ABS light? I don't know what the problem is and the local auto parts stores can only pull OBD II codes.

The ABS light means that the system is not working any more. And it is expensive to fix. I would remove the bulb from the dash and ignore it. The brakes still work, just don't have anti lock any more. And considering the year of the vehicle, It is probably not worth fixing. But I will let you make that call. Hope this helps.

    You can use a jumper wire on the OBD II port to reset the ABS system. I did and it worked great. Buy a Chilton book on your truck at O'Rielly Auto parts and it has the method.

How do I clear check engine light


The check engine light is set by the onboard computer detecting a malfunction or out of tolerance condition. The code(s) can be read with an OBD-II scanner. Once the condition(s) that cause the codes are repaired, the code can be cleared with the OBD-II scantool. You can purchase these tools at local auto parts stores. Be careful though; the cheapest ones will only read the codes, but cannot reset the Check Engine Light.

Do you have an OBD II scanner to read the Diagnostic Troubleshooting Code?

If not, visit your local Pep Boys, NAPA, or Auto Zone parts store; they have readers you can buy, rent, or test for you on site. They'll even guide you to possible repair solutions

When the Check Engine Soon Light comes on , your first instinct is to pull over and check out the situation. This is not necessary. This is the vehicles way of letting you know at its earliest stage that an error has occurred. No need to panic. If you have been driving with that all annoying light on, remember this : Your gas mileage will improve if the necessary repairs are made.
LOOKING FOR CODE INFORMATION GO HERE : DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES




The first thing to do when your "Check Engine Soon" light comes on is to determine the immediate cause. Consider if the vehicle is still performing as usual or if a loss of performance is noticeable. Generally a constant illuminated light without loss of performance points to an emissions related issue( this won't leave you stranded). When the light flashes, this indicates a serious engine failure condition and will require immediate attention. You may wish to take your vehicle to a local shop and have Computer Diagnostics performed. Usually costs under $100.00.


Generally all vehicles from 1996 and up have an OBD II computer. The Major problem when it comes to OBD II is that you can no longer acquire the trouble codes by counting the flashes of the Check Engine light like you could on earlier OBD I vehicles. You can take your car into a local high-tech service shop, where the minimum charge for computer diagnostics and engine diagnostics might cost you somewhere into three digits. Or you may want to learn about OBD II systems. in order to do so you will need an OBD II scan tool. I have already done the research for you and located several different scan tools for you to choose from. If you already have the code and need to know what it means check out our complete list of OBD II Codes Here.





OBD II scan tools connect to the vehicle's computer through a connector under the dash by the steering wheel.

What does it mean when my 2003 honda pilots check engine light comes on?


Hi, the check engine light will require you to have the engine CPU scanned for trouble code's. This can only be administered with the assistance of a diagnostic computer scan tool OBD II. You can purchase this tool, at your local auto parts store, or you can just have the scan ran at your local auto zone parts store, free of charge. Once the diagnostic scan is administered, you will be able to isolate the issues that have caused the check engine light.
This scan tool will display a print out code and the location of the issue, on the engine, as well. There are Many issues that will cause the engine light to illuminate, but the most common cause will be a failed monitoring sensor, or sensor harness failure(separated power wire, or ground).
After retrieving the code, it will be interpreted to know what caused the lights to come up and that will be used to fix the problem.

You will need to have your car's ECM (Computer) read by a OBD II scanner to determine what Trouble Code your ECM is giving so a mechanic can properly diagnose the problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can pull the codes out of your ECM for no charge.

Check engine light on, gas cap tight


Because this is a 1996, it's got a standard OBD-II computer. Take it to any auto parts store and ask them to read the trouble code for you -- every major parts store (Pep Boys/Autozone/Checker/etc) will do it for free.

Your OBD connector is behind the ashtray in the center console -- pull the ashtray out, then push down on the metal part at the top to release it and pull it the rest of the way out of the console.

If you generally do your own work, you might jump on eBay and look for an OBD-II code reader. I got mine for $25 including shipping. It's nothing fancy, but it's saved me a few trips to the parts store place.
