You may need new brake shoes [discs] or it may be the abs sensor needs replacing.

How do I switch off my ABS light on my audi a4


I presume you haven't switched off the ESP or anything on the dashboard? Light might be because there is a fault with ABS, so best take to a garage and get them to read off the fault code

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)

Hi iv got a kia rio 2003 (hatchback) but the ABS light on the dashboard stays on. The car was sitting around for a few mounths so could this be just a dirty sensor?


yes , it is most possible that the sensors are dirty or faulty.
Also it is best to check on all the wheels for the wiring , sometimes it is possible that some rodents can cause havoc.
Best to have a clean up , use jet wash and run the car for sometime to confirm if there is any fault on the main electonic control unit of the ABS.

On my dashboard the abs, handbrake and service light are constantly on will not go off.


Hi
You need to have a diagnostic scan carried out to read the relative fault code, which will give you an idea of what is needed. Clio common for split ABS ring on front driveshafts. Scan at a good local garage should be around £30- 40 ish

PWR light on dashboard


You will need to have the pcm scanned to pull the trouble codes ffrom this unit to get a better idea on what is going on. With the breaks I would say whoever changed them disturbed one of the wheel sensors for the ABS.

ABS LIGHT STAYS ON SPORTAGE 2003


Hi

This could be a dirty or faulty wheel sensor, a faulty ABS pump, or a faulty ABS computer.

You could try cleaning the wheel sensors by spraying them with brake cleaner, and if this doesn't rectify the problem then a garage can read out the ABS fault codes and tell you what the problem is.

Sometimes just a reset is enough to clear it.
