The abs light will reset every time the vehicle is shut off. The most common cause of the abs light coming on is a bad wheel speed sensor. A scan tool would be the option to locate the fault in the abs system.

It may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try stopping the indication using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.

If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.

So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.

After that, if problem still persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

2002 chevy malibu abs light & battery light on


-Sounds like the alternator no produce enough power.
-Start the car and let it runs for 10 minutes to temperature then check voltage at battery. You should get 14.5 volt or +/-. It less then
13 volts. the problem is the alternator. Replace it or rebuild.

Good Luck.

Service engine, abs, trac off


The service engine light does not affect the abs.You most likely have a broken wire in your abs system which is affected by suspension movement.A code reader which does abs codes will tell you which wheel circuit is turning on the abs light.When there is no abs available the track will turn off.

HI, MY BRAKES ARE OK BUT WHEN I HIT A BUMP MY ABS LIGHT COMES ON . HERE LATELY MORE OFTEN .WHEN KEY IS ANOTHER BUMP. THANKSTURN OFF IT GOES OFF TILL


This is the wire that goes to the car wheel. It is either lose or dirty. Try unplugging it and cleaning it with some electonic cleaner and then put it back on. It could also be a bad sensor that this plugs to.
