Hi

Check 2 things ensure the indicators are not in the on position and also check the little switch underneath the brake pedal, if the switch is jammed which is most common then the light stays on.

Hope this helps, if not get back tio me with more information
Regards
Dan

Why does my ABS light stays on and sometimes i get a vibration in the brake petal causing my 2002 Cadillac escalade not wanting to stop?


Sounds like a fault with the Antilock Braking System. The vibration in the pedal is the ABS working. With your foot on the brake pedal, it releases and re-applies the brakes to stop a skid from the wheels locking up. You need professional service for brakes.

Seems to be a known issue on all Cadillac and requires the ABS module to be replaced.

The ABS light on my 2000 dodge caravan stays on. Of course, I took it in to get the brakes fixed today and the light was not on and they checked the sensors and they found nothing. But, after driving for...


The ABS light is an indication of your Anti-lock Brake system malfunction, not meaning your brake system will fail, the ABS keeps the brakes from locking up during bad weather (rain and snow) they can still stop the vehicle but you stand a chance of locking up as in older vehicles without this option...hope that helps!!

My brake light is staying on, what is the problem?


Hello Mr Mixer.

When this happens it is usually a bad brake light switch mounted on the brake pedal lever.
Easy to replace if you are a handy fellow.

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Disconnect electrical connector for stop light switch.
  3. Remove bolt and lock nuts attaching brake pedal to stop light switch and push rod.
  4. Remove stop light switch and bushings from brake pedal.
  5. Reverse procedure to install.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee The ABS light comes on and stays on. What does this mean?


You may have a faulty sensor, most cases a wheel speed sensor, the light is on warning you that you do not have abs basically your car will stop like an old 70's model car before abs. abs atands for anti lock brakes, it keeps your brakes from locking up under extreme braking.

Brakes lights stay on and air suspension stopped working?


those lights are on to let you know that there is a problem with the system.
if they are on their main options will be off, just like if your airbags light is on the airbags wont work if there is a crash, so take ur car to your mechanic and have it ckecked, there are lots of testing to be done on your car to determine what needs to be done

2001 chevy s10 blazer abs light stays .


The abs is a add on for the brakes that when the tires come into a skid or slid they wont lock up..Your brakes will still work great with the abs disabled but your brakes will lock up if you push on the brakes hard enough to stop.Mainly abs works in slippery conditions not letting the tires lock up and keep the car rolling instead of making it slide..But no effect of the brakes will happen..Just make sure your fluid is full and there are no leaks and if you want to get them check you can stop by your local Auto Zone and they will scan your car for free and tell you what sensor is bad..I hope this was helpful to you...Have a great night

Abs light stays on


your brakes are fine it's just telling you that the abs is no longer on . This means if you have a panic stop you may risk locking your brakes up. It could be on becasue one of the sensors is gone bad or the module.

Brake lights stay on


Your brake light switch is stuck on, this is also why the cruise is in-op, the cruise is turned off anytime you touch the brake pedal otherwise the car would try to accelerate when you tried braking. The brake light switch is located above the brake pedal, look up the arm the pedal is attached to and you will see it, the switch is not real expensive, and it is easy to install with simple hand tools. As far as the door lock issue fix the brake light switch and try it, not sure it is related unless it all started at the time the brake lights started staying on. Post back after you replace the switch if door problem remains. Thanks
