Not expensive ,either a sensor or the ring has come loose on a wheel and a spot of weld will cure it

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.

Wht mercedes wont start, tailghts stay on?


The brake light switch is tied to the ignition system.

Check your brake light switch. very common problem.
Follow the brake pedal up until you see it. small electrical part with connection to it.

Make sure to get a "real" Mercedes replacement part, as the aftermarket ones are even flakier than the dealer ones.
They are not that expensive and it's pretty easy to replace yourself.
Hope this helps!

2009 Jeep Lib Speedometer Stops, Stalls and LIghts come on


no , you were told wrong, but ABS is bad too. (or was just the stall resetting ABS to self test mode)
you have 2 independent failures.
1: brakes. (if ABS is on,, not stalled !!!)
2: engine. (this is IT, fix this)

you are guessing at ABS parts.? just throwing them. why do that?
my guess is you have a mech, and you want seconded guessing
on line with blind folks here.


the engine stalls moving,
that usually means the ASD relay dropped out, did the IMMO light come on? you need to look at what all lights did in the cluster at stall.
a stall causes rapid deceleration and loss of all engine power
and RPM drops and MPH drops and at the point of stall
all Cluster lamps go ON. they go to key on self test mode as
stated in the users manual. (lost sure)
to witness this, key on, no start, and bingo the self test happens.
those are NOT failures. its just a self test. Per manual.

Does the ABS stay off driving and not stalling or stalled.
yes, then ABS is ok......

did you take it to a shop (crooks) and tell them my ABS is on?
and they see it's out, and go, gee we can make some cash here for nothing. if you tell them wrong, they will in fact guess, and make you broke fast.
ABS can go on just with a bad brake caliper pad. a $10 part.
if car stops ok, and the lamp is out RUNNING !!!!
Then leave the ABS alone. why assume the most expensive part on car is bad, why do that...???? why not put on new pads. and rotors.
first. then test the ABS. ABS is not magic it cant help stop any car with bad manual brakes. not at all.
end brakes; now back to ENGINE.


then fix the stalls,
here is the stalls list, for only the ASD.
(even a tuneup, will end stalling)

THE ASD is the funky Jeep thing, that kills the engine for many a reason. (there are tests for each case failure)

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


if the CEL lamp comes on driving < NOT STALLED)
then connect any scan tool, to the DLC connector at knees.
and scan the PCM for DTC errors.
then post those.
keep in mind, errors can AUTO clear, so not seeing them
in REAL TIME< means you missed the boat.
that is, you didnt get the facts of the failure.
but errors still in effect are stored and you can in fact
scan them parked, key on.
the CEL is only a SMOG light, you must scan to see the other 100+ errors. possible.

Better:
find a real ASE shop, and ask them to fix the stalls, (car stops good)
then they will fix that
and by magic the stalls are gone and the dash lamps go happy.

Abs light stays on, after changing brakes, 1997 caddy deville


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.

Abs light is on


When the ABS (Anti Lock Brake System) light is on it means the systems control module has detected a failure and the ABS is disabled, this means you just have regular non ABS brakes. To find out what the fault is requires the ABS control module be scanned with a special tool to see what fault codes show up.

Abs light and traction control light stays on, why


I suggest bring vehicle to shop that has an ABS scanner. Perhaps you have a bad wheel speed sensor that needs replaced. Check the fuses for the ABS computer.

If the sensor in the differential is bad, just replace it. It's not expensive nor is it difficult to replace. Its held in with one 10mm bolt located on top of the differential above the drive shaft area. When your ABS light is on, it just means that your onboard computer has dedected a problem and disabled the ABS only. You still have reagular power brakes. Technically, I guess it is a safety issue, but not much of one.

Keep us updated.

ABS light went on while driving and noise stays on after ignition is turned off.


There is a relay inside of the ABS motor housing that can stay engaged making the motor run continuously without the key in the run position. If this is the problem the only fix is to replace the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve assembly. You may also may need to replace the Control Module that is attached to it.

The motor can be unplugged from the module and will shut off. The ABS light will stay on until it if fixed properly. The other way to shut down the motor is to remove the ABS fuse in the underhood fuse box.

The ABS module and BPMV are expensive and the brakes will have to be bled. Junk yard parts can be cheaper if your capable to replace them.

ABS light stays on


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been anovervoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle

Brake and abs lights stays on in a 2003 gmc safari wile driving after a small period of time. put new pads and there's no leaks in the calipers


Have the ABS Distribution Unit/Computer checked at the dealer.

NOTE: ABS Unit located under the vehicle, under the drivers seat. Listen to it with the vehicle running with no brake on... if you hear ABS motor running continuously, unplug ABS fuse in fuse block under hood to turn ABS motor off and be able to use vehicle in the meantime whether you decide to get the ABS fixed or not.. This will not affect brake operation, but will disable ABS feature. ABS and Brake idiot lights will remain on. No way to turn them off short of having the correct repair done. ABS Distribution Unit/Computer is very expensive part and requires expensive labour for replacement.

My ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism


Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.
