SOURCE: flashing hand brake light is on give,s 3 beeps

Yes. Both lights usually come on when there is an ABS problem detected whereas the brake light will usaully only come on by itself with the hand brake or low fluid.

SOURCE: ABS light and brake light on

there are 2 options, ABS module is most likely, I just had my ABS module remanufactured and it worked greate when i re-installed.

the second option is the wheel sensor could have a bad connection(may have been bumped when your bearing got looked at.

there are a few companies that repair ABS modules, i used modulemasters, they did a good job, i can not vouch for any of the other companies.

I have a '99 dodge grand caravan se, while in park the abs light came on, the battery light came on, and the check engine light has been on,


Looks like you have a few issues there.

1. The battery warning. This is indicative of a weak battery and if your battery is 3 years old or more I would replace it.

2. If you have a weak battery this can trigger other warning lights in the vehicle, typically the ABS warning but sometimes other warning lights as well depending on the electronic features in the car. If you replace the battery this should correct the battery warning and most likely the ABS warning if both of these warnings appeared at the same time.
Normally, once the ABS warning is displayed the anti lock braking system(ABS) will be shut down. Whilst your braking will be normal, if you brake too hard and lock up your wheels on a slippery road there is no ABS assist to prevent the brake lock up which you have when the system is working.

3. If the alternator on the engine is not generating sufficient power and thus not charging the battery at all, or very little, you will likely get a battery warning light. I don't know if your 1999 vehicle has a warning light to indicate a faulty alternator or not.

4. Check Engine Light.
You suggested the CE warning has been showing up for a few days and before the battery and ABS warnings popped up.
The CE warning can be caused by dozens of different engine issues.
The vehicle needs to be scanned with the appropriate scan tool to see what fault codes the onboard computer is generating because if you have a CE warning light there will be fault codes generated 99% of the time.

Once these fault codes have been pulled the mechanic can start to diagnose the cause of the problem or problems. Each engine fault code your car's computer is generating can be caused by different types of problems so it is important that they diagnose the issues correctly. Otherwise your Check Engine light will remain on as long as the causes are not identified and fixed.

My dash light abs and brake lights came on as well as internal lights.why


What I would do: get a fault code reader on you truck. Autozone will put one on it for Free. Record the codes and use a Haynes manual and on-line research to assist in diagnosis. You probably have several simultaneous issues that are affecting one another. Usually an ABS warning light comes on, when the vehicle isn't moving, when a wheel sensor or sensors is bad and/or the ABS computer module is bad. Rebuilt modules can be had for $100 or so. Sensors are easy to replace once you determine either with a specific fault code or with a multimeter which ones are faulty. If the vehicle is moving and the ABS light comes on when you are pressing the brake... this is normal when the ABS is activated and the vibration is felt through the brake pedal.

Abs light stays on I have put new brake line on new calipers because they were sticking causing brakes to get hot, thats all fixed but light still stays on.


the ABS light is on because there has been a fault detected by the ABS module. It has nothing to do with the actual braking system.

The ABS module does a self check every time you start the vehicle. If it detects a problem during that self check the ABS light will stay illuminated and a code or codes for the fault will be stored in the ABS module. Scanning the module will allow you to pull the codes and proceed with diagnosing why the fault is occurring.

The most common source of ABS problems is bad wheel speed sensors or broken wires to the wheel speed sensors. Again pulling the codes from the ABS module will narrow down the possibilities.

Once you now what codes are present post them and we will be happy to assist you further.

1999 Olds Silhouette -- Problem - ABS & Brake Traction light "coming on" on the instrament panel. Brake fluid level "full". Brake pads & shoes "new". No brake fluid is getting to the REAR brakes....


The ABS light is on because there is a fault in the abs system, The traction control uses the abs system so it will also not work if the abs is not working. You'll need to scan the ABS module to see what code is stored in its memory. Once you have the code you'll have a better idea of what needs to be repaired.

ABS light is coming on despite having brakes done and codes cleared


If your going to do the repair yourself take the vehicle to Autozone and have them scan the ECU for the codes that are affecting your ABS. Then do the repairs the codes dictate.

fluid level sensor is a possiblity, but being your pedal feels odd it could be master cylinder.My suggestion would be to have the codes pulled to narrow it down

On my 2000 oldsmobile intrigue the anti lock and brake light won't go out


The lights are indicating you have an ABS brake control failure.
There are only a couple of things to look at. Check the ABS fuse in the under hood fuse box. If they are OK, take the car to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto store and get the codes pulled, they will do it at no charge. Write the codes down and reply.
We will go from there.
Good luck,
Regards,
