I have done as suggested, but light is still on. Is there a way that I can check the code without a scanner or a way to clear the codes and reset the ABS computer.

ABS/TCS lights on 2002 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6. Have high quality OBDII Scanner. Should the on board system report the problem to the scanner?

Only if the warning light showed on the dash...most often these abs sensors get clogged with brake dust or dislodged during wheel swaps if the pads are fine and fluid level correct...first check the brake pads then the disks and clean the sensors with an old toothbrush and reseat, also check the fluid level on the abs system.this should clear warning light.but any error codes stored on ecu need to be cleared using obd.

You can't turn out the vehicle speed control/traction lights without a scanner/code reader. The light is on because it has detected a problem with this system. The ABS controls the VSC. You need to have the codes scanned and determine what is at fault

1997 acura cl ABS light turn on Howe can I reset it?

Was a repair of the ABS System done & the shop
didn't clear the codes?

You don't reset much on a car,you clear data & that
turns off the check light

That doesn't fix a problem & removes the data
needed to do

If you don't want to chance loosing the radio or
having a car on security lock out ,you use a code
reader to clear codes,unless you know the system
& the consequences

How to turn off brake or ABS warning light

Some code scanners can clear ABS codes but I would first check to see why it is on - something is faulty.

Vauxhall astra abs fault codes

Finding the fault code will not clear the problem if you reset the system without finding the cause the light will just come on again or the fault code will not clear.
Anything related to brakes should be checked out by a garage/mechanic and not ignored.
Its probably just an abs sensor failed but its better to be safe than sorry.
Sorry for the lecture but I wouldnt like to see anyone hurt due to brake system failure.

1997 Venture ABS light is on but has no code reading

Not all OBD-2 scanners are created equal. Most only read power-train (engine/transmission) codes and are not capable of reading ABS codes. Some scanners even have a specific button you have to press to get ABS codes. Try a different scanner. I know places like Auto Zone will scan codes for free but not every store has the same reader. The AZ nearest to me has the ABS capable scanner while the one on the other side of town can't read ABS codes.

I cannot get my check engine light to stay off. It comes on and off and I was told it was the gascap. The ABS light wasnt reset when I had some repairs done. How can I get them both to stay off.

Some auto parts stores have pressure testers to check the seal on your gas cap to ensure it's not loosing pressure or you can buy a new one. I would suggest checking your vehicle for trouble codes first to be sure though. If it's your gas cap it will be an evaporative emissions control code. Your abs system requires a separate scanner to check for problems but usually it is just the sensor that goes bad and needs to be replaced.

Abs light on

Did you have the code cleared by a scanner? If not have a mechanic scan for any codes in the ABS system, it is possible a sensor may have to be replaced as well.
