Most of the time ABS problems are with sensers but which one? The master cylinder has a fluid level that sticks low evewn if theres enought fluid so makw sure it flates up in the fluild if the light stays on them check the wires and the plugs that plug in the wheel speed sensers as the sensers seldom fail but the wires abd plugs get into troble. Follow the wires from the sensers to the ABS controller and reconnect them and inspect all the covering and wires for troble. Most two wire sensers will have some continuity with an OHM meter but it will be high. If you meter has wave form then put in on one wire to ground with everything connected and turn the wheel and you should see pulse and its a yes or no answer. If the wires and the sensers check out and the levels senser can be proven to work you best let someone with access to the Yamaha dianostic equipment to look at it. Rember that an open brake line or an unbleed brake line will also make the light come on.. Unplug the ABS controller only with the key off and the battery unhooked as these parts are easlily damaged by spickes in power or a low or bad battery. Once all inspections are made and the battery connections cleaned and reconnecdted try again as you may have cleaned something up and it's making now and the system may work just fine

I have a 2005 Yamaha FJR1300a....recently the abs light started flashing...what does that mean?

ABS flashing means not working - The Back-up will trigger the ABS every time it blinks - Remove back-up and test.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.

If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

1997 ford f-150 flashing abs light (flashes 15 times then stops solid and then flashes again 15 times) rear brakes shoes are at 50% no broken parts inside drum area. did notice that somtimes i would come...

Does your speedometer work ok? There is a sensor on top of your rear differential that provides a signal to both the abs and the computer(speedometer uses the signal from the computer) This sensor goes out pretty common.

I had this problem.
When they test the ABS with the car not running the ABS was OK.
When the take the car for a drive still hook up to the tester, they find that one of the wheel sensor was bad.
I replaced it and every thing was OK.

2004 focus brake & ABS light on

Ok the reason I ask is that will help to pinpoint the concern. See ABS system when you first turn the ignition on will do a self test on itself,light turns on for a few seconds then turns off if everything proves out. Then when you start driving once you reach about 12 mph it will activate the pump and perform a 2nd self test.If everything is ok light stays off,if it see's a problem it turns on the light and disables the ABS.
Since yours comes on after you start driving then problem is most likely a wheel speed sensor concern. Since you just did a rear brake job and the problem started after this I would say it is one of the rear sensors.You need to look at the sensors and make sure the sensor and ring look ok and that you didn't get grease or dirt in the teeth of the sensor ring or maybe bent the end of one of the sensors and make the gap larger between sensor and ring.

Abs brake light always on

Sounds like this could be a front or rear wheel sensor. You need to check the trouble code by placing a wire short across the test connector located under the dash near the radio center console. This is a blue, two pin connector plugged into a holder. placing a short wire across the two termnals and turning the key on to the II On Position will start the ABS light flashing. Do nt start the engine, just turn the key switch on.

Count the number of flashes. The first group of flashes followed by the next group of flashes. For example, four (4) flashes followed by the next group of eight (8) flashes points to the left driver side rear wheel speed sensor. check the resistance (continuity) with a meter. It should read about 1240 ohms. A resistance of 0 -100 ohms is a bad sensor. Cost of a sensor is about $126 but it is not easy to install since the old one usually is hard to remove.

Bottom line is that the ABS system probably does not work properly because the light is on. The regular brakes are OK.
