Check to see if you have had your car serviced for the ABS recall. You will want to do this timely as it is a fire hazard.

ABS CHECK LIGHT DOESNT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN KEY ON


1. I would not be concerned because if there was a failure in the ABS you would definitely get an ABS warning light and the ABS and most likely the stability control/traction control systems (with added warning lights) will all switch off .

2. You can test if the ABS is operational. On a very quiet damp surface, straight, wide road( with NO other cars around), apply your brakes hard from a very low speed - up to 20 mph ONLY driving in a straight line - until the car stops. The front brakes should attempt to lock up under hard braking and if the ABS is operational you will feel it kick in and the brake pedal will pulsate as the ABS constantly allows brake pressure and then releases it to prevent the wheels from locking up on the damp road. If the ABS does not kick in be ready to release the brake pedal quickly to allow the wheels to rotate so you can steer the car safely. Without the ABS the front wheels should begin to lock up on the damp road surface due to the low level of tire grip. ONLY test this at very low speed and ONLY when driving in a straight line on a straight section of wide road with no other vehicles around.

Proton Savvy 1.2 2008. Following a service the ABS and Brake light keep coming on? No fluid loss and brakes seem fine. Can anyone advise please?


-You're okay to drive. Just quick check if the brake fluid is full or not.
If Not then top it to full line. Even the ABS is not working, the basic
brake still work as regular car.

Good Luck

I own a 2002 gmc yukon 2 wheel drive and is a florida vehicle and never left the state .. abs lite and brake lite come on constantly on my dash and lites up,, new brakes and new wheel hubs or bearings were...


It's so much easier to hook up a scanner to read the ABS codes than trying to guess, the brake lite comes on when the fluid is low or your e-brake is on, only takes one click to activate the light.

Peugeot 306 ABS light is on constantly.


if it help, having the abs light on in your vehicle just means that the abs system has a fault. normaly the abs sensor on one of the wheels are abd in 85% of all vehicles. if you are worried about driving the car, no worries, it is still safe to drive and you will NOT lose your brakes. your brakes are manual and the abs is electrical. i would say take your car to a dealership and have them rub a diagnostic test on your abs. they will be able to help you more then a regular garage will. most dont have the ability to check abs systems
