Welcome to Fixya

This event is actually triggering the vehicle's antilock brake system that is non functional. When this happens, the ABS system logs one or more fault codes that correspond to the problem and turns on the ABS warning light. In most cases, it also temporarily DISABLES your ABS system. You vehicle should still brake and stop normally, but it will NOT have antilock braking when making a sudden panic stop or braking on wet or slick surfaces. You can continue driving, but you should have the problem diagnosed and repaired at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for using Fixya!

On my 91 cougar it sat for about 2 months due to a power steering problem I fixed that problem now my abs and brake lights stay on is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?


"Is it possible if I bleed all four brakes they might shut off?"

If you bleed the brakes all you will do is remove any air in the brake lines and replace the brake fluid with new fluid. Do this in any event if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

This will have no affect on the ABS warning light and when the light is displayed the ABS has turned off because there is a problem with the ABS. You will not get it back on until the cause is determined and fixed which may be just a failed wheel speed sensor.

The brake warning has probably been triggered by the same failure that has caused the ABS warning light (since they came on together and bleeding the brakes should make no difference).

If the car sat for 2 months, no doubt the battery went flat. You have not mentioned anything about the battery but if your battery is in poor shape this can trigger warning lights in many cars especially the ABS (and stability control systems).

The best option is to have the vehicle scanned for fault codes that have been generated and there will be one or 2 if these warning lights are displayed. Scanning the ABS for codes will show up one or more issues and you can trace the problem from there. I think you will find the brake warning and ABS warning have been caused by the same fault.

In any event make sure you check the brake fluid level in the car and look for any external leaks of fluid that may have developed. Check the operation of your brakes to ensure they are working normally and that the brake pedal is not slowly dropping to the floor when you continue to apply pressure. Bleed the brakes if the brake fluid is 2 yrs old or more.

ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

I have a 1994 buick and i have no brakes i bleed them and still nothing pedal goes all the way to the floor.


YOU NEED A TECH 1 SCANNER TO MOTOR REHOME FUNCTION PISTONS IN THE ABS BRAKE MODULATOR SHOULD BE RETURN TO THE UPPER MOST POSITION.BEFORE YOU CAN BLEED BRAKES.IF YOU DONT HAVE TECH 1 SCANNER SAFELY RAISE SUPPORT FRONT OF VECHICLE USING JACK STANDS. WITH FRONTS WHEELS OFF GROUND EMERGENCY BRAKE APPLIED WITH PUT VECHICLE IN DRIVE LET WHEELS SPIN AT 5 MILES PER HOUR THEN APPLY BRAKE PUT VECHICLE BACK IN PARK.TURN OFF CAR. THEN WAIT FEW MINUTES THEN START ENGINE AGAIN IF THE AMBER ABS LIGHT STILL FLASHES AND DONT TURN OFF HAVE VECHICLE TOWED IN LET DEALERSHIP PRESSURE BLEED AND USE THE TECH 1 SCANNER TO BLEED AND FIX YOU BRAKES FOR YOU.

My brake and anti brake lights stay on all the time


CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT IT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF VOLTAGE LOWER 12 VOLTS THAT WILL CAUSE BRAKE AND ANTI LOCK BRAKE LIGHTS TO COME ON BECAUSE THAT NOT ENOUGH POWER FOR ABS BRAKES OPERATION.IF ALTERNATOR GOOD.BRAKE AND ABS LIGHTS ON ALSO MEANS LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.ALSO. YOU HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.YOU NEED TO HAVE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP CHECK BRAKES SYSTEM.BEFORE BRAKES COMPLETELY FAIL.

If the brake pedal goes to the floor with the car off, I would suspect air in the system or some other issue with the service brakes. If you feel and hear a growl in the pedal when it goes to the floor then your abs controller may be at fault. There are many possibilities. In either case if your pedal goes to the floor, then you are looking at a safety issue. Generally the service brake system (regular brake system) is the fault and not the abs. I have however seen a sticking dump valve or faulty wheel speed sensor cause an abs issue. Start with the basics first. Leaky wheel cylinders/ calipers, brake lines, or master cylinder. Verify the hydraulic integrity of the service brakes before tackling an abs issue.

The usual problem with the park brake is the design of the rotor. The park brake is on the inside of the rotor. The drum area rusts inward onto the park brake shoe, wearing it out. Thus the pedal goes to the floor. I f you really need the park brake you will have to replace the rotors and the park brake shoes.

As far as the brake light goes, have the abs system checked for codes. You may have a wheel speed sensor issue. Have you had your recall done for the rust under the sensor issue?
