Need to check the wheel sensors to make sure they are working - take a digi meter disconect sensor and check resistance, static - then when you turn the wheel hub. there should be an altering reading or better described as a pulsating reading - if not you may have a fault with that sensor, Generally the faults are with wheel sensors which though expensive are a relatve easy fix. It does take time and somthing else which gets in short measure the right humour. Why put so much junk on a vehicle which is going to give problems down the line?

Isuzu ABS issue


what ISuzu in what body. KB? backie>? in what country>?
first off the brakes must be good for ABS to work
so we inspect brakes or
or we use a real ABS scanner, the PCM scan tools do not scan ABS, (in most cases) so you need to use the correct tool.
The ABS tool will in fact show a code. for sure.
sounds like your Isuzu shop is incompetent to me.

are you tell us that you took the car to Isuzu and the ABS light was off?
well if that is true then , it can be impossible to fix.
after all , you cant fix that which is NOW working.

if that is true,. only scanning the ABS failed works.
see?
or if lucky the brakes just need service.
(pads bad)
stuck caliper pistons. (hanging up, hot)
caliper guides stuck, (same reason)
air in the system, seems not.

ask the mech to drive car for day with a real ABS scanner in the car, and when it fails , scan the ABS.
or buy one your self and do that.
or if rich replace parts 1 by 1 in the blind hope of finding which part is intermediate. $$$$$$$$

scan the ABS not the PCM the PCM only knows ABS is failing.
scan the ABS to see all ABS codes.
and do so , only with ABS lamp glowing.

Why is 2009 ford fusion abs light staying on occasionally?


All warning lights must be taken serious. Even when the light goes on, because the sensor is defect. Ignoring it and not repair this, makes you also get no warning when the system really fails.
Why the light goes on? could be a real error in the ABS system, could be a sensor problem. Impossible to see from here. Please let a tech check what is wrong and don't wait here for an answer like leave it, or remove the bulb, because that would be ridiculous and irresponsible.

abs unit failed or the sensor on front passenger side wheel has failed all depends if abs is fitted for the abs unit. you would have a light on dash if abs has faild or the bulb may have blown on the light.

What-to-do?


Hi this is a common prob with vtnz over here i had a similar prob had been taking my car 4 a wof there for years and then suddenly they pick up on things they had been passing for years, anyhow the only reason for failing brake hoses thay you have replaced will be the concern for the wear and tear on the car body, but if the mechanics agree they are legal and vtnz wont budge it might pay to get a written letter or them (the mechs) to ring the vtnz office in question. If all else fails there is actually a complaints procedure on the back of the wof itself. goodluck

I replaced a cracked rear tail light with an after market new light. Now the brake light won't work but reverse lights and directional signal do. The bulbs are fine as I've moved them around and...



  • If there are no brake lights period the check the stop switch (brake light switch)
  • This is attached to the upper part of the brake pedal itself. Should be a little wire off of it. When that goes bad the brake lights will not work at all.
  • Please note that the fuse for "brakes" is ABS only and has no bearing on the brake lights themselves working.

ABS light stays on when driving


Most of them do. And most people don't bother to fix them. A little piece of black tape will do it. When the light comes on it means your anti lock brake system has failed, and to get it repaired is way more than it is worth, seeing that we drove for years without abs, they do work great though. But seeing your car is getting older, you may not want to bother with it. The call is up to you. I didn't bother with the tape, I went into the dash and pulled out the bulb. Works fine! What abs??? Hope this helps. OH, almost for got, your brakes still work just like normal, only no ABS,, which is the stuttering when slamming on the brakes.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on


Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..
