Abs light flashing

Hi. I have tried the reset method with grounding the middle connector and pushing the reset switch. Several times and I am sure I do it correctly. However, it still lights alternatively. What to do?

SOURCE: abs light flashing alternatively when putting ignition on

There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.

SOURCE: anti lock brake lights flashing simultaneously

I would check the brake pads first to see if they are worn badly, spent a lot time once learning that will cause ABS lights to flash!
Grounding the middle pin on the ABS diagnostic plug , turn on the ignition and mash both brakes to see if the bulb checker light goes out! Very important, left out of procedure on IBMWR, if the red bulb checker light doesn't go out you have a blown tail light or stop light bulb and the ABS won't reset!
Or you have a bad bulb checker module underneath the seat. If the red light goes out then the ABS lights should go to flashing then push the ABS reset button and hold for slow count of 10 or so. Release and try it. Hope this helps!

94 mazda mpv ABS light is flashing 15 times then pause. over and over. can somebody tell me what this means?


Turn your key to the on posistion, and wait to see if the "ABS" light starts to flash. If not, There should be a gray single pin connector on the driver side fenderwall. Unhook that and jump the grey/white side to a ground momentarily when it is grounded then the ground broken the light should start flashing. either way, these are the codes--

(2,3,4,)-Hydraulic unit

(6)-Ring gear speed sensor

(7,8,)-Hydraulic unit

(9.10)-Ring gear speed sensor

(11)-Stoplight switch

(13,14,15)-Control unit

There are flow charts for all of these. This is just a place to start.

I hope this helps Thanks Rod

HOW TO RESET ABS LIGHT ON 06 TACOMA


Locate the 16 pin Data Link Connector under the steering side.
To clear fault codes, switch off ignition, connect jumper wire between terminals TS (pin 12) and CG (pin 4). Switch the key on, then pump the brake pedal eight or more times in three seconds or less. When codes are erased, the ABS light should flash two times per second.

Switch off the ignition. Remove the jumper wire.
Hope that works.
If problem persists, contact a service personnel.

Indicator lights for oil ABS, etc., won't turn off in 2000 Pontiac Montana. Tried the turn ignition on, push accessorator pedal to floor thing others had mentioned and it didn't help unfortunately. Any...


I really need to know exactly which lights are on. If it is the change oil in the information box then you turn the ignition switch on, push the gas pedal down fully 3 times, turn the ign off. Then start the car and if it does not come on, then it has been reset. Sometimes you have to do that several times before it will reset, not sure why. I'm not sure what you mean by ABS and etc.

Abs lights flash back and forth. They don't turn off. Right turn signal won't flash, bulb tests ok. Right rear turn signal flashes very fast. Left turn signals all normal.


Hi, you could try re-setting the abs. To do this you will need a length of 2amp cable about 500mm long, fix a small crocodile clip to one end, remove seat and search for a three pin blank connector, when you have located this put key in ignition but do not switch on at this point. Bare the end of the wire and insert in CENTRE hole of socket, put croc clip onto a good earth, then press abs button at the same time turn on ignition, count for 30 seconds, let go of abs button, switch off ignition, remove cable, put seat back on. This should reset abs. Sit back and have a beer. Cheers.

My 1995 K75 ABS system has failed. I have checked the sensor gaps and they are fine. What would be the next step.


Locate the blue ABS 3 pin connector underneath the side cover, attach a piece of wire to the MIDDLE pin and other end to good ground such as motor mount bolt. Turn on the ign switch, press front and rear brake levers to extinguish the red bulb checker light in middle of your instruments, ABS lights should start flashing indicating reset mode, now press the ABS reset rocker switch on the handlebar pad and hold for slow count or 10. Release , turn off ignition, remove wire and try it! I have reset units that the dealers said were bad using this method. It unlocks the Cmos chips in the module.

4wd issues!!! When I start the truck, all 3 lights( 2hi 4hi and 4lo) flash once on the switch then go off ( all of them). It drives just fine but is in 2wd. When I push any of the buttons the 4hi and 4lo...


THE 4WD SWITCH IS A PROBLEM. ALSO THE GROUND CONNECTOR ON THE FRAME CLOSE TO THE DRIVERS DOOR IS A PROBLEM. IT USUALLY HAS A COATING OF THE UNDERCOAT MATERIAL ON THE FRAME THAT IS NOT REMOVED BEFORE THE CONNECTORS ARE PUT IN PLACE.

THERE ARE 2 BOLTS THERE THE OTHER IS AN ABS GROUND CLEAN OFF THE UNDERCOATING FIRST, PUT DIELECTRIC GREASE ON THE CONNECTION POINTS, THEN COVER THEM IN SPRAY ON UNDERCOATING. THIS IS A CHEAP FIX TRY IT FIRST.

RATE ME PLEASE.
