HI,

The ABS might have been disrupted depending on the level of force exerted on the car on the left sight during the accident.

I will suggest you get the ABS system thoroughly examined and checked to be on the safe side to avoid future occurrence of very fertile accident which might be disastrous.


Good luck and be careful.

Electronic stability control & abs & brake assist warning indicator lights are coming on after an accident. How serious are they?


You have damage to the front area brake system. It could be very serious but if car stops OK most likely not that serious you just won't have abs or traction control. The damage is most likely a speed sensor or something similar. I said it could be serious that is only worst case.
Here is a breakdown of what lights mean
ABS keeps your breaks from locking up
BREAK ASSIST helps your breaks
Traction control if you one wheels spin more than others system adjust wheel spiN

Aveo air bags did not deploy after accident


The SRS systems are usually designed to go off in a frontal impact. There are 2 sensors that need inertia on the same plane to make contact and set off the system. My guess is that she did not hit anything at the correct angle to set off the system. It will not deploy when hit from the sides or rear of the car. An air bag will only increase your survivability by 4% over a lap belt/shoulder harness which gives you about 44% in an otherwise fatal accident. Lesson is always wear your belts. And say a prayer to thank god she is alive.

2006 dodge magnum I was in an accident rear ended


speed sensor is fitted to the abs system. if the abs system is fine with no faults coming up then it is down to the dash. now the dash is the most sensitive part, if you hit the dash to hard it can make this happen. also can make the connection to the dash and wiring come apart. braking the circuit. taking the dash out and cleaning the pins that connect the dash to the wiring can sort this out. failing this the speedo its self may be damaged and need replacing. you can hit the dash in an accident and you would not even know you have hit it. your brain does not register the movment.

How to turn off abs light? Peugeot 306 cabrio


Nice try but all ABS brake systems are designed to disable, and work manually if a fault is detected. The reason for this is safety.
Scenario: A left front sensor stops working, the computer sets a code, but the ABS still works. A situation arises that involves hard braking, the vehicle starts to skid, and the ABS activates. Since all the wheels are in a lock up situation the ABS cycles to pulse the brakes. The left front can not pulse because the sensor is malfunctioning. Three brakes pulse, the left front does not, the vehicle pulls hard left into oncoming traffic and a serious accident results with fatalities.
The problem can be as simple as a sensor out of adjustment or a dirty sensor. A lot of brakes are bimetallic and the wheel sensors use magnets. Brake dust can be drawn to the sensor. This will cause a malfunction and a code.
Get an estimate, get it repaired, add the cost to the selling price, and don't be another--"shove it off on Mary as long as it sells". ABS has been on the market a long time and operates different than standard brakes. Mary might not know this, hit the brakes too hard, and skid through an intersection. You survive but Mary doesn't. This is sometimes called cause and effect. Although the instigator

Trac Off, ABS, and VSC indicator lights are on...I was involved in a front end fender bender but nothing major just the fender and bumper damage. but these lights would not go off. 2010 Toyota Sienna LE...


It is very common for all of these lights to come on all at the same time. They are all related to your Antilock Brake and Traction control system. ABS = Antilock Brake System, TRAC OFF = the traction control system is disabled - either because there is a malfunction in the ABS system or you have turned off the traction control button. VSC = Vehicle Skid Control. - (which uses the ABS and the Traction Control to function.)

The most common cause of these lights coming on is one or more defective wheel speed sensors. Although there are many other possible causes as well. Your ABS and Traction Control system must be scanned for fault codes to diagnose the problem. If you had damage to your wheels/axles during your "fender bender" this may have something to do with it. Otherwise it may just be coincidence that part of these systems failed right after your accident.

It all depends on the speed you hit tree. BMW can scan computer and track back any faults. Hopefully SRS/check engine light wasn't lit when you were involved in accident.

Abs stays on . will this damage brakes


NOT REALLY BUT IN CASE OF A ACCIDENT OR SUDDENT BRAKE YOUR BREAKS ARE NOT GONNA PERFORMED AS INTENDED. THE ABS IS TO CONTROL YOUR TIRES FROM LOCKING AND CAUSEING YOU TO LOOSE COMPLETE CONTROL OF A PANIC BREAK. CHECK THE FLUID LEVER ON THE MASTER CYLINDER RESERVOIR, AND IF THAT OKAY. THE NEXT THING TO IS TO CHECK ALL 4 ABS SENSOR ON YOUR TIRES FOR DIRTY METAL OR DAMAGED. 90% OF THE ABS PROBLEMS ARE DUE TO JUST BEEN DIRTY OR THE WIRE BEEN DAMAGED DUE TO HITTING OVER THE ROAD. ALSO WORNED BRAKE SHOES. HOPE THIS HELPS. TO MAKE IT SIMPLE YOU CAN GO TO AUTO ZONE AND THEY WILL LEND YOU A SNANNER AND THAT WAY YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TIRE SIDE IT IS. SEND ME A FEEDBACK THANSK

2000 Chevy Cavalier will not start after accident


there is a g force sensor in the fender. there is a fuel shutoff system in place to shut off the fuel pump in case of an accident on most newer cars.
i would call gm and ask if that is the case with your car.
same thing applies if the airbags are deployed.
