My 2008 Jeep Wrangler x 'S abs light stay on what is causing this what do I need to change on it??


When the ABS light stays on it means the control module has detected a fault in the ABS system, the light is turned on to alert you and the ABS system is turned off, so right now you have plain old brakes, no ABS. You must have the ABS code read and then diagnosed for the defective part that is causing this light.

My abs and brake light stay on while am driving


The computer has detected a condition that indicates a fault with the ABS/Traction system. Typically that's caused by a wheel sensor problem, but it can also be caused by a faulty connector, peripheral device or the computer.
The above is the shop or garage answear. How about telling us how to fix the problem , besides replacing the computer or wheel sensor? How do we check these things?
Sometimes can be as simple as a short circuit in the rear break lights or a faulty connection in the break lights.
You can start checking the break light system. Then the sensors and finally the computer.

What is check engine and trac off light on mean


check engine light comes on when the computer detects a problem with the engine drivability and sets a code for what may be causing the problem that set the light on. the traction control off light comes on when the abs system detects a problem of a wheel or sensor that has lost communication with the system either through the electronics or through a wheel spin. this system works and is monitored by the abs system module(computer).

Abs and tcs light on 2000 chevy montecarlo


The abs light comes on when a fault is detected with abs system. Your best bet is to have the abs system scanned for trouble codes. Typically loose wheel bearings, or broken abs sensor harness wires are the two most common causes for the abs light to come on.

If the brake caliper is leakin would that cause the abs light to come on


If the ABS system detects uneven braking the light will come on which could happen if the one wheel wasn't braking as it should due to the leak, and also a leaking caliper can cause air to get into the ABS pump which will also cause the light to come on, Fix the leak to determine if there are any other issues.

Abs and traction light on


Any time the ABS light is on the traction control light will be on and the system will be disabled.

The ABS light is on because the ABS computer has detected a fault either in its self check if the light comes on at start up and stays on or when the vehicle is moving, the light will come on at start up then turn off and then come back on after the vehicle is moving.

The best advice I can give is have the ABS computer scanned for codes. This will give a good direction to head into to solve the problem. A high end muti-function scan tool or a ABS specific code reader will be needed to do this.

Once you know the code(s) post them and I'll be happy to help you further.

Some common problems I see on these are speed sensors and bad harnesses for the front speed sensors. sloppy front wheel bearings can also cause the ABS light to come on.

A bad speed sensor can cause the light to come on and stay on. There is a way to check them but you will need a good DVOM and know how to use it.

Let me know if you have any further questions and i'll be happy to answer them.

Some common problems I see on the minivans are rear speed sensors and broken exciter rings. The exciter rings will cause the light to come on after you start moving and can also have some other symptoms like overactive ABS and not turn on the light as well.

A bad speed sensor can cause the light to come on and stay on. There is a way to check them but you will need a good DVOM and know how to use it.

The abs light came on? What might be the problem?


the abs light will come on if there is low pressure in one of the tires on the vehicle.
The abs system detects the drag the low air pressure tire is causing , and allerts you of this.
other causes are bad wheel bearings which cause a vibration in the abs sensors .
there are other reasons the abs will light up , but these are the most common.

Abs light never goes out 2001 gmc jimmy


If it never goes out than it suggests there is a failure in the abs system during it's sef check. Every time you start the vehicle the abs does a quick self check. If nothing wrong is detected the abs light will goe out shortly after starting. If a fault is detected the abs light will stay on. Some common failures that cause this are a bad abs sensor and broken abs sensor harness wires. You can visually instect the harnesses to see if any are broke. You can use a DVOM to check the sensors. The quickest way to identify the problem is have the abs module scanned for codes. This will identify the problem and give you a better idea of what direction to head into.

ABS, TRAC LIGHT IS ONWEN DRIVING AND REFUSES TO GO OFF. WHAT CAN CAUSE THIS? AND HOW CAN WE RECTIFY IT.


The ABS and TRAC lights are on because the system detects a fault with both systems (which share the same components) There may be a bad wheel speed sensor, abs module, even something as simple as a brake switch. The computer will have to be scanned to see what codes were set and then diagnosed further from there to determine what the fault is.
