Some cars/trucks run the ABS power through the brake light bulbs!
Does brake light and ABS light come on separately,key on,engine off?
Be sure that the parking brake switch is not bad.
The brake light should flicker/get brighter/dimmer when actuationg the parking brake.
Also,defeat the low fluid warning sensor.Defeat the pressure differentail switch.
I know some MFRs make both lights come on when either system fails.

Check for signal FROM the sensor at a wheel Use A/C voltage mode. I have spun the undriven hub with an electric drill to see A/C output.

Please note that the brakes will work OK but you not have ABS function.

See if you can get the brake warning light out,separately.

2003 dodge ram 1500 abs & brake light came on. also cruise does not work. any suggestions


Problem: I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 L HEMI. My ABS and Parking Brake lights were illuminated, and my speedometer needle would "bounce". Also when sitting at a stop sign or just sitting idle, the engine would stall, and often times stop running.

Solution: After long research on this problem, I decided to dig in and try to find the problem myself. I replaced the Rear ABS Sensor
($35) that's located on top of the rear differential. Still no fix. I then unplugged the ABS Controller (or Module) that's located directly behind the battery (You should see the metal brake lines running into the top of it.) When I unplugged it, I noticed LOTS of moisture in the plug. Using an air hose, I blew out the water and let it dry good. When I plugged it back in, and hooked the negative battery terminal back up THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED!! Simple fix. Hope this helps.

Hi, Autozone will scan your vehicle for free 1997 and newer vehicles. Your brake fluid being low will also make the brake light go on. Ihope this helped you out. Good luck, .....MIKE-

Random lights coming on in the dash and stalling occasionally


See if you can find out if there is a code for the check engine lite and the abs, those can be related if the speed sensor located on the top of the rear axle is intermittantly failing. That sensor sends the speed signal to the pcm and the abs controler witch will also turn off the cruise control.

The brake and ABS light both come on when you are receiving no speed signal. Most likely the speed sensor in the top of the rearend is bad.
