I would check wheel bearings as the sensors for the abs are built in if one is bad it will cause the light to stay on once replaced the lights go out

2002 advance track and abs light on and brakes locked car wont move


Check the emergency brakes first. If set, replace the rear cables or just cut them. Next is to have the codes read for the ABS system. Bad bearing or sensor. Just a note. I have seen people drive their vehicles that the bearings lock up.

ABS light and traction light and no cruise control


how on earth would the blind know what is wrong.?
scan it? yet?
btw, newer cars cut cruise feature for any signs of danger.
new laws...
the traction needs ABS to work ,so forget that and fix ABS.
ABS needs 2 things to work , brakes and ABS.

so if brakes are bad, then ABS will get upset.
after all, if it cant brake right, how can the puter save you?
if brakes are known to be ok (inspections work here)
but in this case it was BREACHED by you, with out reading the book first.
then scan the ABS. (omg? code for dead sensor?) nah, you caused it..
easy

ABS resets every key on. so...
my guess, if ABS was happy before your actions( you never said)
then you got air in to the system. and failed to follow the FSM instructions on bleeding brakes, in ABS car.

front caliper, did you block the hose with cap, so it didn't allow air to the modulator? oops... never just let them drip... or . max pain.
bleed it again, (using any or all 5 ways to do so, bleeding is skill thing) (many modulators can not just be simply bled)

now Ill quote the 2012 fSM for you , under brakes

Data: -----------------------------------------------------------------
ABS Brake Bleeding
STANDARD PROCEDURE - ABS BRAKE BLEEDING

ABS system bleeding requires conventional bleeding methods plus use of a scan tool. The procedure involves performing a base brake bleeding, followed by use of the scan tool to cycle and bleed the HCU pump and solenoids. A second base brake bleeding procedure is then required to remove any air remaining in the system.

Perform base brake bleeding, (Refer to Brakes - Standard Procedure)(Refer To List 1).

Connect scan tool to the Data Link Connector.

Select ANTILOCK BRAKES, followed by MISCELLANEOUS, then ABS BRAKES. Follow the instructions displayed. When scan tool displays TEST COMPLETE, disconnect scan tool and proceed.

Perform base brake bleeding a second time, (Refer to Brakes - Standard Procedure)(Refer To List 1).

Top off master cylinder fluid level and verify proper brake operation before moving vehicle.

Hey I have a 98 volvo v90 wagon. I replaced rotors pads calipers and hoses from brake lines to calipers on the front. Now my abs light is on and when I brake only sometimes I can feel the brakes pulsating....


Hey man The ABS light is most likely a speed sensor out of range. It will not effect normal braking function. You have already spent a ton of money. Chasing an ABS light fault is not cost effective and you wont feel the difference. ABS problems are a dealer only option(expensive). Take that ABS bulb out of the dash and forget about it.

Abs light stays on and track stays on have an emmission test coming up


The ABS (antilock brake sytem) and the "track" are interconnected. Your ABS system has generated an error code and is not working and therefore your traction control system is disabled also. In most cases it is a failed abs speed sensor located in 2 or all 4 wheels that is creating the problem. The codes and locations can be read with a scanner. Worse case scenario is your abs booster pump has failed and would need replacing if you want the ABS function to work. You can also try disconnecting the electrical cord in the front/bottom of the ABS pump and spray the connectors with an electrical parts cleaner aerosol and reconnecting. This worked for my 2002 Impala LS, just had a bad connection from one of the sensors from all the years. Your brakes are still working just no anti-lock feature.

I Have a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500.Both the ABS and Brake Lights are on


Hi!!

Did you have the ABS sensors checked ?? The brake fluid level when low also activates the Brake and ABS lights?? Drive truck to an AutoZone store and ask to have computer codes scanned. This is a free service for all customers. This will help you to pinpoint the problem.

Good Luck!!

My lights stay on all the time abs, brake and track control


It sounds like you have a faulty ABCM or anti-lock braking control mechanism. 2003 was a common year for failure of this. Usually your car will drive just fine, however, your ABS and traction control might not work as well as there supposed too in a collision.

98' Ford Windstar has a spongy brake


Have you had anyone try to clean and adjust the rear brakes? You will need a shop to scan the van for ABS codes first to cure the ABS light.
