You have replaced the Master Cylinder and ABS sensors, That only leaves the calipers and Vacuum line to the master Cylinder. When you replaced the sensors and Master Cylinder I assume you reset the ECM module. If you didn't try resetting the ECM by removing the Negative Terminal for 1 min then reconnect it and see if that ABS light comes back on. If it does then you need to check the Vacuum line on the Master Cylinder and make sure you have Good vacuum. If the Vacuum is good check your Brake Calipers to make sure they aren't malfunctioning.

We have new brake pads and new rotors, now abs light is on, Why

Interesting question. The ABS magnetic sensors on each wheel can get gummed up with dirt, rust and brake dust. Perhaps the brake shop did not clean the sensor properly, or worse, may have damaged one or more when the rotors are replaced. The sensor also has a tough wire up to the chassis. If this is damaged or disconnected, the ABS light will turn on.

Take it back to the shop and have them check.

Why does the abs light stay on as well as the tsc light say off

  • One or more of your ABS sensors has more than likely gone out. ABS is Automatic Braking System. This is an auto pumping of your breaks as a way to prevent skidding. The TCS (Traction Control System) light is going off because of the ABS. One is making the other react.

  • So there are a few diagnosing things you can do first before just throwing in a part. To find out exactly which ABS is malfunctioning you can take your vehicle to Auto Zone and get it scanned free of charge.

  • Check for abnormal brake dust buildup on the rotors. Check the master Cylender and the EBTCM - Electronic Brake Traction Control Module on the master brake cylender for broken connectors and wires. Make sure all the brake lights are working properly and that no water is sitting in the brake light assembly.

  • As mentioned above if all this checks out then you need to get it scanned to find out the ABS sensor that has failed. If you pull the wheel and look on top of the rotor towards the back you can see the ABS sensor. They are an easy replace. They literally twist out and remove the connector and then replace with a new one. so don't spend big bucks on a replacement you can do this yourself.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

ABS light came on after changing pads and rotors

The ABS reluctor ring is mounted on the back of the rotor by three fasteners. They do NOT come with the new rotor. IF you did not transfer that part, there would be nothing for the sensor to get it's signal or (sine wve) from. That would set codes. Did you transfer abs ring along with the hub when putting on the new rotors ?

Abs brake light comes on replaced it but couple days same proplem it goes off when turn motor off but comes back on if hit a bump

What did you replace?If it where a sensor,make sure you changed the right sensor,also wheel bearings gone bad will cause this,also bad rotors,and brake pads.If the vehicle has problems stopping like the computer thinks ,then the light will come on,but if hitting bumps causes the light to come on,then the wheel bearing or rotor,or brake liners(pads)could be the problem.I hope this was some help.

ABS light goes on and off

Sounds like you have loose brake pad linings.
The traction control measures rotational speed between each rear wheel. If your pad lining momentarily causes one wheel to hesitate your trac control will flash. As the ABS detects braking without the brake pedal being pushed, it will flash.
Check your emergency brake pads. They can fall apart inside the drum/rotor combo on the rear. That is where your sensor is for the ABS.

My DSC and Brake warning lamps continuously light up in yellow once the engine has warmed up. They remain on after driving for a while and sometimes they shut off. Any ideas?

Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Abs light stays on.

Typically on this model along with Q45's there is a built in sensor system. The factory pads come with a sensor, so when the pads are installed there is a wired plug that must be connected to the sensor mounted on the behind the rotor. This was designed to give you a visual warning that the brake pads needed replaced. However since most aftermarket pads for this vehicle do not come with sensors, the connector is left unplugged and the circuit is open causing the light to stay on. Another thing is to check the brake fluid level. Often times as the pads wear the fluid level goes down a little. Once it reaches a certian point it will cause the light to come on as well.
