    I am putting my foot on the brakes. I took it to the dealer and they said water was getting into the car below the carpet on the driver's side. Could this be causing the shorthing out and do you think it is expensive to fix. Thanks

  • Daryl Gleaton May 07, 2014

    I don't believe the water is the problem. i would take it to a reputable garage or local mechanic. It is usually less per hour than a dealer. Are your brake lights coming on? The brakel light switch does have to be working too enable the car to shift into gear.

    Yes Sir, the brakes light are coming on. Do you know where the ABS sensor is in the car?? Thanks

  • Daryl Gleaton May 08, 2014

    Yes the abs sensor is located on the steering knuckle assembly in the front and the spindle assembly in the back axles. They mount on the inboard side of the spindle/steering knuckle. The sensors will get dirty and not pick up a signal from the rotor tabs. These are located around the inside of the rotor and form a circle of tabs. When these tabs stop at the sensor the abs relieves the pressure in the braking system to keep tires from locking up. There may be a sensor on the abs unit that is bad(stuck open or closed) that tells the system to divert the pressure. Thus there is a diverter valve and the sensor that work together to stop the skidding. Your problem has to be that the electric sensor that tells the transmission that the brake is applied. Go to the Volkswagen dot com site and click on parts and they should have a diagram.

Something is shorting out or back feeding power in the ABS system. I assume you are putting your foot on the brake when attempting to put it in drive.

Will bad bearings on the tire assembly cause the abs and slip lights to come on along with loud noise


A bad bearing will allow looseness in the hub and may allow the abs sensor to become out of range of the abs reluctor ring/bearing sender which will turn on the abs light/slip light.

I have a 2001 mazda tribute 4 wheel drive. All of a sudden the abs light and brake light came on and I hear something running under the good even when the key is off. What could b wrong?


Sounds like the abs pump. Anytime a red light comes on you should not drive it. Check and see if that vehicle has ever had a recall on the abs/brake system.

Would your engine light come on if your ABS and brake light come on?


If the ABS warning light comes on the engine light should not come on as well. ABS light shows there is something wrong with the brakes. The engine light shows that there is something wrong with the engine.

Abs light stayin on, polo 1.4 tdi pd s 2003


Maybe.
The warning light is for the ABS system, not the regular hydraulic brake system.
Someone needs to scan the computer for trouble codes and turn the light off. Then drive the car and see if the light comes back on.

My ABS light showin my my dash board and it was scanned my mitsubishi. Presently the light is still showing and when I break, I hear some noise as if the break pad is pad. I currently have new beak pad...


Hi,

New brake pads require 'wearing in' and may make a scraping sound for the first 50km or so.

Re ABS

First, I suggest you remove the PCM "Fuse" (in the main junction box, under bonnet) for 10secs, then re-insert. If you cannot find fuse, then disconnect NEG battery cable for 10secs. This will reset your PCM.

Start engine and allow to idle for 15mins (this allows the PCM to re-learn settings).

Drive car a short distance to determine if ABS light comes back on. If ABS light does come back on, then have the PCM scanned for fault codes. This will identify which ABS component is causing the (warning light) problem.

If light remains off (and the pads are worn in), but you still have scraping noise, then something else is causing this problem and will require further investigation.

The ABS light came on the car stop for a minute after a while I cut the car back on and it started. what is a ABS and where is it located on a ford taurus 1996 car.


The "ABS" or Anti-lock Brake System is exactly that. When the brake pedal is pressed in a harsh or panic manner the "ABS" senses the tires locking up or skidding. It releases just enough brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate thereby giving control back to the driver. It allows the shortest stopping distance. The "ABS" control module will be located next to the Brake Master Cykinder in the engine compartment and attached by steel brake lines. If the "ABS" light is coming on then the system is malfunctioning and should be checked as soon as possiable.

Abs light on


Get your abs checked out. If you want, check it yourself on an empty street, just be ready to have a dead spot on your tires if your not quick.

drive as at a decent speed where allowed (5 mph should be good) and floor the breaks... If your abs works, then you need to find out why the light is on. If they dont work, then you know that something is wrong with the ABS module in your car and also need to get it checked out.

Listen to the car... if it tells you somethings wrong (ie- lights on the dash..) usually something is.

Happy Hunting.
