If your abs and brake light are on, first check to make certain that there is enough fluid in the brake reservoir. Next, you will have to check the abs sensors on each wheel for damage. Generally, the sensors are easily found because they are attached to a wire near your cv joints. If your sensor are ok, then the next probable cause could be a ring(s) on your cv joint(s) has damaged and require replacing the entire cv joint. Also, if your check engine light is on, have the light read for possible codes.

Good Luck

ABS and handbrake light beeps while driving

ABS warns you about a problem in your ABS System starting from the fuse, or relay and the other light is not for the hand break ! it's warning you about your break PADS.
So change your break pads and check your ABS system functionality.

1.Why is my break light indicator on dashboard on even when break is not engaged.Note,my break is active and fluid level is ok. 2. Why is my ABS light on and refused go off from dashboard.

Because you have a problem in the ABS system . With the light being on there is a DTC -diagnostic trouble code stored in the ABS control module . EBCM - electronic brake control module . The red brake light also will come on with ABS problem . If you are unfamiliar with this I suggest you take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair facility that is .

Abs and traction control dash lites come on and off at various time..sometimes never come on

Your abs and traction control lights should only come on when you start to slide while breaking(ABS), and when your wheels spin in place when excelerating(TC). If those 2 things don't happen, which with some people they never do, you should never see the lights come on. Only when those mechanisms are in use do the lights come on. And they will always flicker as that is what abs and tc are, intermitant surges to break up the constant. ABS does this for obvious reasons...anti lock break, so when you slide, the abs "taps" the breaks in short bursts so they don't lock up. TC "taps" the exclelrator when it slips. Those "taps" are what trigger the lights on your dash, which is why they flicker and don't stay on.

Break lights on

Check the abs module for trouble codes. You will need a high end scan tool or a specific abs code reader to do it. The brake light is on likely because the abs light is on. The airbag light might be a different story. Does the horn and cruise work?

Abs lights on

if your abs light is on, then check break pads. usually when your break pads are really low the light comes on. also you may just have a busted abs sensor

Abs light is on

IMO take it to a mechanic and have them scan the ABS controller (usually $100 or less). They can determine whether it's just your ABS or regular breaking that's affected. Most vehicles work fine without ABS, but if you don't get the ABS fixed, be aware of how to break properly in emergency situations without it!

ABS break . light for ABS break dose off

Probably a failed ABS electronic module. These can often be rebuilt. Do a search for ABS module, Russia, IA. There is a company there that rebuilds the modules, and they have a good troubleshooting guide on their website.
