Hello. All of these warning lights are related and caused, most likely by a bad sensor. This is a very common problem in these cars with ABS once they get to be over 3 years old. If you have an AAMCO repair shop nearby drive there and they will scan your car's computer for free. Otherwise, call your local parts stores until you find one that scans car computers for free and then you will know what your car's computer is telling you. In the mean time, the car is still safe to drive, you just may not have the anti-lock feature to the brakes but u will still have brakes. Joe

4 thumbs up will be appreciated. ty.

Well, I would have the 1999 Acura scanned with an OBD-II Scanner at Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, or you can buy your own scanner for under $100 at Sears for the engine side.

For the ABS and SRS lights I would say that the dealer should have scanners that can diagnose that portion of your problem. The $100 scanner for ABS and VRS that I know of from Actron.com is good for only American nameplate vehicles (GM, Ford, Chrysler).

That should get you down the road on diagnosing the problem. The parts required to repair the vehicle is the next phase of the repair process, and follow from the codes that are read with the appropriate scanning tools.

I wish you luck on these repairs.

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Some vehicles have a self check where, when you turn it on the guages go all the way to maximum then back to zero. This is normal and part of the self check routine. If it is intermitant is might be a problem.
Because your ABS and SRS (airbag) lights are on, you have issue with your vehicle. Best bet is to take it to a mechanic and get it diagnosed. Better spend a little money now than a lot of money later.

Numerous error codes, brake, abs, srs, and lighting problem


i got to admitt thats alot of things to go wrong at once. i am no expert here, but there is a chance you got a loose or broken ground somewhere. chk. battery cables make sure there clean and tight, and any other ground straps you can find. with todays computered cars and trucks grounds are a big thing and just one not making contact can make the whole system go haywire. GOOD LUCK.

Srs , battery lights, abs lights car stopped


Have the battery load tested to verify if it is good or bad.After the battery test,remove the alternator and have it tested for proper output.Places like Auto Zone will test both for free,but you have to remove from the car,and take the items to the store.

Warning lights


You need to have your brakes inspected by a professional. The lights indicate that ABS and traction control are not working...although brakes will work without these features, a humming noise can indicate more problems to come.
