    My ABS light just came on in my 2001 Golf. I just bought the car (used) a week ago. Is there quick fix for this? Maybe a loose fuse? Help.

    1999 VW Golf ABS warning light now on after replacement of rear bushings (never on before).  Repair shop indicates that it is not related and that a new ABS pump is now needed at a cost of over £800.  Any DIY options for self-check to verify or DIY replacement?

My EPC light magically appeared at 20K miles and the car squeaks like mad whenever it's moving. I don't notice any performance loss (engine-wise) in the car when the EPC light comes on but it won't let me switch gears from Park to R or D. I have an appointment next Friday to have it looked at. It's an automatic 2002 New BORA with JUST over 20K miles.

Fuse box in top of battery has a cable connected to the positive side of battery and it might be loose. Tight it and alarm should go away.

My ABS light stays on, Can the ABS system cause my rear wheels to heat up? (To hot to touch) 2003 ford explorer.

Remove the ABS fuse to disable the ABS system . The brakes will work as NORMAL brakes and you will now see if the rear brakes heat up. They more than likely will as the ABS would not have any effect on the brakes in normal running situations.
Suggest take the vehicle to a GOOD brake shop and get them to fix the problem

How to disable ABS brakes on a 2011 honda pilot?

You DO NOT need to disable the ABS in order to bleed the brake fluid from the system. Almost all of the time you usually bleed the brakes with the engine off anyways to get a "Hard" pedal. Even if you were to do it with the engine running it would not affect the bleeding procedure except the pedal will never pump up to being "Hard" and will give a false reading of still being "Soft" or going to the floor when in fact it may or may not be already OK. This is not the fault of the ABS system, just the running motor.
Good Luck!

Replaced brakes on 1995 Ford Taurus and now ABS light is on and ABS is disabled

The ABS light only comes on because of a fault. You need the ABS control module scanned for the code that set when the light comes on. There is no RESET

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.

ABS Light Stays on new brakes put on

Could be dirty abs sensors attached to your brakes. I would clean them with brake parts or elecronical cleaner.
Other possibility is a faulty ABS system.
