If the ABS light is on, it's a good idea to find out what codes are stored.

The OBD-II system allows many codes to be read but a specialist with an ABS BrakeScan tool will be needed in order to find the codes for the ABS system for your vehicle.

I bought a Brakescan tool that works on most Ford, Chrysler, and GM vehicles from 1996 through 2005 but, I don't think it will work with the Nissan Maxima.

So, that's why I would direct you to the dealer for this one.

Why is my ABS system kicking on for no reason on my 2009 trailblazer?


There is ALWAYS a reason.
Reasons that the ABS light will illuminate:
  1. Brake pads, brake shoes, rotors, or drums worn beyond allowable specification;
  2. Brake fluid level low, or brake fluid leaking;
  3. Failed ABS control unit;
  4. Failed ABS sensors at wheels

My brakes shudder but no abs light


Common problem with GM trucks is abs kicks in when not wanted. Just pull the ABS fuse out and eliminate it.

When I get on brakes they "kick" back


Check brake discs, maybe they are damaged. If they are not in balance, they could kick back when braking, and when u press harder, then kicking stops.

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....


Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

2004 Lexus SC 430 brake & ABS light comes on without braking


Well ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. The reason that kicks on is so your brakes don't lock up on you on certain terrain so that's not bad. But you said your brake lights are bad, check the wiring to them for any bare wiring to make sure none of the metal is hanging out of the insulation rubber.

ABS warning light


Hi,

To my knowledge, the ABS light coming on indicates that the system has been disabled for some unknown reason(s). This would then translates to your vehicle having only standard/conventional power brakes, but brakes you will still have.

The correct procedure would be to have your ABS Brake Code scanned and interpreted.

The ABS warning light could be triggered by faulty sensor in any of the wheels or damaged wiring/connector or worst case scenario defective ABS module, pump or motor. Alternately, you try to fill the reservoir up. Normally, there would be a rubber cap andanother plastic cap under it. Add Honda brake fluid with the engine running. It would be preferable to do it slowly as to allow the air bubbles to escape. Additionally, pls check for any sign of leakage. If for some reason it would considerable fluid has to be added, it may be necessary to bleed the system. Pls reference this page for the procedures.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
