The ABS Light and Breaking light keep coming on and going off. I have replaced the brakes and the callipers. Does anyone know how to turn these lights off. My vehicle will not pass inspection as long as they are on.

The ABS means Anti-Lock brake System, and the exclamation mark means Low Tire Warning. Hope this helps.. You probably have a bad speed sensor on one of the wheels. They work together for the tire pressure monitor and the ABS .. :-) Cobra

This is indicative of a failure in your braking system, detected on the electronic portion. if the ABS light is on, that means the computer will have logged a code, and having the vehicle scanned is the first place to start in the diagnostic procedure. this will narrow down the area of the problem, and then the diagnostics can begin. good luck!

The skidding tire symbol came on along with a bussing sound and a message" SERVICE RSC NOW' WHAT do I need to service this.


RSC stands for "roll stability control". It means there is something wrong with your ABS braking system and other than not having ABS brakes it's safe to drive . Get it checked at your convenience.

I have 2 guesses. It's either a tire pressure warning light, which means you should fill your tires to the perscribed amount, or its a check engine light (CEL) and means that something is wrong with the engine and the car should be serviced. A third possibility is that it is the ABS light coming on when ABS is activated. However, in this case the light would be intermittent. If you check your owners manual you will get a breakdown of what each of these symbols mean.

What do warning symbols look like


I'm going to go ahead and answer one of these duplicate questions.
You said in another question you did not have the manual. I don't know of any source online for a photo of the symbols or a free manual. Most of the symbols are standard issue, meaning the abs light is for the abs brakes, etc.
You may still be able to order an owners manual from the dealer, or look on Ebay. You may also be able to find out some of the special symbols from owner club websites like durango club or challanger forum online.

I have a warning light on on the dashboard no manuel so I don't know what it is..... Can you show me the symbols??


okay let me tell you and i will try to show you them. first is the check engine light which is a yelloe symbol of a small engine, this means theres a problem with the engine operation or emmisions system. this you can go to an auto parts store and they will scan the cars computer for codes and give you a print out. i can help you further with the codes, next is the anti braking system which doesnt allow the wheels to skid in heavy braking or snow and ice, this symbol will say ABS.nextis the red brake light which will say BRAKE in red and will sometimes come on with the yellow ABS light this light if on alone means you are low on brake fluid, which means a leak or low brakes and you need to have the brake system checked asap, the rest of the light are low coolant, trac, which is in the ****** and controls the traction control, this light will come on if this cars has it when the abs or engine light is on because the computer shuts it done when theres a problem.hope this helps.heres a good site that will show you all lights and what they mean there are alot depending on the car. hope this is helpful.http://www.autoevolution.com/news/how-to-read-the-dashboard-lights-1370.html

There is a symbol that lights up on my dash in between the mileage and the gear readouts it looks like a tranie or a motor, but i do not have a manual for my car and so do not know what the symbol means


orange would mean service engine, like the old orange colored service engine soon lights that are computer or emissions related. red would mean oil or engine problem. it's probably a motor symbol so we can dismiss ABS or other red brake light.

I have a vw vr6 manuel tran.On dash i have a light with a (!) in the middle of a triangle and three curved arrows around it.Also the abs light comes on with it and only when i shift to 2nd not rev or...


the (!) symbol is for the traction control. the abs light means you have a code stored in the abs computer. the abs is what partially controls the traction control. basically go to the dealer or repair shop and have the code pulled and diagnosed.
