    I have a 1999 chevy silverado 1500. The abs light stays on. I do not think that the abs actually works. Is there any way to get the light to go off whether the abs works or not

    While driving down the road, both the parking brake and ABS lights come on. You can shut off the engine, then restart the truck and the lights go out as normal.

    My abs light comes on only when making a left turn on slow motion. Never happens if car travel with speed ?

    My ABS light is coming on and staying on, with the chime.  Does this actually mean I have a brake problem?  Or is it telling me that I am due for service?
    thanks.

    My abs light comes on when the temperature drops below freezing, shortly after I pull out of the driveway, on my 1999 3.1.

    If I stop, switch off, then restart the engine, the abs light USUALLY will not come on again.

    Is this a fault with the brakes or merely the system that displays their status?

My 2008 Jeep Wrangler x 'S abs light stay on what is causing this what do I need to change on it??


When the ABS light stays on it means the control module has detected a fault in the ABS system, the light is turned on to alert you and the ABS system is turned off, so right now you have plain old brakes, no ABS. You must have the ABS code read and then diagnosed for the defective part that is causing this light.

Abs and tcs light on 2000 chevy montecarlo


The abs light comes on when a fault is detected with abs system. Your best bet is to have the abs system scanned for trouble codes. Typically loose wheel bearings, or broken abs sensor harness wires are the two most common causes for the abs light to come on.

How to reset abs light in a subaru forester


The ABS light on your vehicle will self-reset, once the condition causing the light to illuminate is rectified.
Reasons for the ABS light coming on are:
  1. Worn brake pads;
  2. Worn calipers (beyond tolerance);
  3. Defective ABS unit;
  4. Low brake fluid level;
  5. Defective master cylinder;
  6. Brake fluid leak.
It is important that whatever condition is causing the ABS light to illuminate is corrected as soon as possible, as it indicates a potential hazardous condition exists with your vehicle.

The abs light came on? What might be the problem?


the abs light will come on if there is low pressure in one of the tires on the vehicle.
The abs system detects the drag the low air pressure tire is causing , and allerts you of this.
other causes are bad wheel bearings which cause a vibration in the abs sensors .
there are other reasons the abs will light up , but these are the most common.

2001 Buick Lesabre ABS light stays on even resetting the system. brakes are good and responding just the light coming on and off.


What this means is that the abs module is seeing a problem in the abs system.This has nothing to do with the regular brakes.What you need to do is get the codes from the abs module and this will help in finding what could be causing the light to come on.When the abs light comes on the regular brakes will work normally but your abs brakes will be disabled.Let me know what codes you find and I can help or explain what the cause could be.Good luck.
