Question about 1994 Geo Prizm

2 Answers

I have a '94 GEO Prizm 1.6L. The ABS light stays on all the time. I checked the brakes and bled them and everything look, feels and sounds fine. Could it be a sensor on my brakes? and how do I change the fuel filter?

Your ABS light is on for good. It will not shut off unless you fix the brake system which is usually more than the car is worth. Most people just use black tape. I took out my bulb 10 years ago. The brakes still work fine, just no anti lock brakes, i never noticed a difference. I had another guy say his car wouldn't run when the light came on, I never heard that before. Hope this helps.

I have the same problem. The local dealership has determined that it is just a dead sensor that Chevrolet no longer stocks, not a problem with the brakes themselves. My car still passes its annual safety inspection, even with the light displayed.

If it really bothers you, check with a Toyota repair shop for the corresponding Corolla part.

Why does my abs light come on in my 1995 Geo Prism?


Hi
The Lord Grant You Peace!!!
My ABS light was on for a long time in my 1995 Geo. I never did fix it. I just drove it in the winter as if I had no ABS system and got along fine.
Peace and All Good Things!!!

94 prizm The brake idiot light goes on and off


The warning light is connected to the master cylinder and the parking brake.
It comes on if the brake fluid is low or if the parking brake is left on.

1991 geo prizm, battery light and brake light in the dash stay lit when you start the car. The car still runs fine just the dash warning lights stay on. The alternator was replaced maybe three years ago,...


Yes, it could be. Or you can check your battery. And try adding brake fluid to your master cylinder. That sometimes will cause the brake light to come on. Or check your emergency brake. Hope this helps, James Booth.

94 geo prizm turn key nothing jump it nothing but have lights and everything


Check all of the fuses first, then try getting under the car and tapping the starter with a hammer several times, then try to start it again. If it starts, you'll want to replace the starter/solenoid (built together). You can also take the starter to a parts store to have the starter tested.

My ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism


Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.

ABS and Brake Light on


Sounds like you have a bad sensor. No you can not hurt anything by driving with the light on, but you do want to try to keep your warning lights clear

1995 Geo Prizm ABS always light on.


I have the feeling that the cv was replaced with one that didn't have a tone ring (part of the ABS) on it, or the tech neglected to put the sensor back in the knuckle.
Definitely take it back. Good luck!
