    ABS light comes on and goes off all the time every few minutes. Sometimes the brakes will just lock up on me when I am in a little water please help.

    Wish I could offer help - I can only offer another weird story about dashboard lights. Whenever I apply my hand break and hazards at the same time - the check engine light comes on. After I restart the car, the light goes off. Bizarre.

Check your master cylinder switch in the res. is not stuck down. When started is the light off until you go over 15 mph? If so check your abs relay. Good luck

My 2006 Corolla ABS+hand brake light is on after i start the car and keeps showing is it on. What might be the problem?

Any time you have an ABS problem the red brake light will also light up.Not sure but it could be that you just have a bad wheel speed sensor.There is a wheel speed sensor at each wheel.A quick scan of the ABS computer will tell you this.Let me know if this helps or if you have further questions.
