Hi


This can happen when you may have introduced air into the hydraulics or moved the ABS sensor out of position. It also happens if you start the bike with a low battery then the brake warning lamp will stay on. This was especially a problem with the 01 and older bikes. It is caused by the battery voltage being below the ABS computers voltage requirement. Charge the battery and ride it, see what happens. These systems are also very finicky about clean brake fluid. This is why BMW wants it changed annually. If the bike has servo brakes check that one of the brake lamp switches isn't sticking on. Please review this service manual for more information:

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

What does it mean when the vehicle's dashboard lights are saying that the ABS light is on, the AT Oil Temp light is on, and the dashboard brake light is flashing?


It is telling you, you need to visit a mechanic, and fast.

ABS light may just be brake fluid, so you could locate that under the hood and check.

Automatic Transmission fluid may be low and is overheating because of low oil level. Make sure you pull the right dipstick, as it looks remarkably similar to the engine oil dipstick.

Brake light could be worn pads as many have wear indicators.

Check light flashing whats up


when the light is flashing do some simple checks first
check coolant level at the radiator cap
check sump oil level
if the transmission has a dip stick check fluid level
check brake oil level in the reservoir
Now have the fault codes read as the light refers to engine and transmission faults.

After having a full service the oil light is flashing red, what could this mean?


It depends on which oil light it is; there is either something wrong with the oil or it is very low. Running the engine while either warning is active poses a risk to the engine.

Pull the oil dipstick and check the oil level and it's content. If there is no problem with either, consider having the oil pump inspected.

Oil level low light comes on. When I turn


some cars with oil level warning light on, it doesn't mean that its only reading the engine oil level is low, sometime the transmission fuid too. Did you check your transmission fluid if it is ok or not? try to check and let us know, ok.

My 99' volvo v70 continually flashes the traction control and abs warning light and the speedometer stops working the trip meter and the odometer go blank than all of a sudden it will start working again...


Sounds like a bad ABS control module is at least part of your problem. The symptoms are usually and ABS and TRACS light intermittent or constand and eventually your speedometer works intermittently or totally quits. This guy rebuilds/upgrades them for about $140. New ones run over $800. http://home.earthlink.net/~vicrocha/Volvo_Parts/Volvo_ABS_removal.htm

Engine Transmission Light coming on intermittently


low pressure in the tranny, did you check the oil level in park? if so you might have to check it in gear with someone holding it on the brakes, then re-check... hopefully it isn;t the pressure solenoid.... $$$$$$.... they can be expensive, cheers!

ABS and coolant are unrelated unless there is a problem with the ECM (engine control module) or instrument panel. Is the red coolant warning sign for coolant level or temperature?

With ABS if there is any failure with any brake electronic component (sensor, motor, or fluid level etc) the ABS will shut down completely and flash the light. If the light is on or flashing the ABS is non functioning.

I need better information on the coolant and ABS to give better information.
