ABS Light is ON?

Ever since my husband and I bought our van our ABS Light has been on and we seem to go through our brakes fairly quickly. I was wondering if the two have anything to do with each other and how I could get that light turned off. Also the airbag light is on as well.

Anti-Lock Break System is activated.it could be somthing as simple as a sensor out of adjustment or rust build up or a tooth missing on the exciter rings, now and then i have seen a broken wire right off the sensor. without actually looking at your car with either a scanner or at least a meter or your wheel sensors it can be hard to say any more. increase your following distance and make an appointment to get your car looked at.

Need to know the make and model with the year of production.

Chances are your ABS system is not activating or you would know it (LOUD activation noise in earlier model years due to larger components and HUGE motors).

Sounds like you ABS is working correctly, the light will come on when the system is activated, and from the sounds of things(oil pan broke) it did. Were the rotors for the brakes checked for run out? Sounds like a warped or bent rotor. If you were having problems with the ABS the light would stay on, deactivating the system.

The ABS light on our 2005 Chrysler Tow and Country Van is on all the time when the vehicle is running. Why? My husband has checked the brakes and they are fine. How can we fix this problem?


ABS runs off the speed sensors located in the wheel bearing. You have to replace the entire bearing to fix it. Just because the ABS is not working correctly doesn't mean that you don't have brakes. They will continue to work. You can have it scanned for free at a parts store. Repost with the code number/s and we can go from there. Also it could be another problem other than the speed sensors.

My 93 caravan 3.3 has abs can i disconnect the system,and go regular brakes.no problem now,i bought used a month ago,and afraid of future repair cost,on standard brakes i can fix,but not abs.please help,


Yes this is an acceptable quick fix if you can stand the ABS light on. You now have non ABS standard power brakes. Folks survived without ABS for many years. I personally hate ABS systems.

My brake light, ABS light and TCS light all appear on dashboard.This all occurred after my van wouldn't start in extremely cold weather. I'm afraid to drive the van. My husband thinks it might be low...


The brake light may be on because of low fluid.The traction control is on because the abs light is on.System requires the abs to be actively working for traction control to work.The most common cause of this is a wheel speed sensor which on this vehicle is part of the bearing hub assembly.You will need a scan tool to locate where the fault is in the abs system.

2006 Chrysler Pacifica touring abs light on stays on


Hi. this light is a warning that concerns the ABS sensor and mechanism assembly. there is a central module and connecting sensors that are attached to each axle/rotor. If any of the sensors become unstable or starts to malfunction, the main module will detect this anomaly and it will trip the light via, the ECM.

I recommend taking this vehicle in so that the ABS techs can diagnosis this issue and they can pin point which sensor or mechanism is malfunctioning.

You vehicle seems to operate in a normal manner at this point but, you will actually have to be in a hard braking situation in order to experience this malfunctions results. If you where to initiate a hard brake while the ABS system is in safe mode(light on), your vehicle would simply lock up. It would not provide the ABS actions due to this malfunction that is evident at this point.

Please rate and god bless:)

Hi, if your abs light is always on, but you are not having any problems, then chances are it is just a sensor on one of the four wheels, these are easily replaced

Antilock brakes not funtioning properly on "hard" stops


Yes, I never did like ABS brakes because of this. What you have experienced is the ABS system working as it is designed to do. I know, it doesn't seem like you should still be moving after slamming on the brakes, but here is how it works;
When you apply a fast and hard pedal and the ground beneath you is wet the wheels stop at different times. There are sprockets mounted to the rear of the rotors, with magnetic sensors that monitor the wheel info. for all four wheels mounted next to the brake calipers. On a hard stop when the sensor detects one wheel stopping and another still going, these sensors send "pulses" to each wheel until the vehicle has stopped without the brakes having to lock up. The pulsiing is what you experienced and is a normal part of the ABS function.
Please rate this and let me know if it helped.
