If the abs is disconnected, it can be one of the speed sensors which consists of one per wheel, or the abs computer which is usually around the trunk area of the car, depending on the model. can you specify which model it is? it might also bew something as simple as an abs fuse located in the engine compartment. but if you want to repair your abs because you are concerned about safety, you shouldnt be alarmed because your standard brake system is still intact. if you want to repair your abs because you want to be safer, the best thing to do is recover the code to know what is malfunctioning/disconnected. if your car is 97 or older, than it is most likely obd1, which honda has convinientely placed a computer connection in the passangers side which requires a paper clip to read. if it is 98 or older, it should be obd2 which needs a scanner to read. please reply with the specific model and year number so i can help you to the best of my abilities. thank you, and goodluck

What is A B S and brake default

the abs gets it signals from the sensors at every wheel
these sensors read from the hubs or disc rotors so make sure that the rotors or hubs have the required exciter inbuilt for the sensors to read
check for damaged wires to the wheels as any one damaged /disconnected will put the ABS on

Why would the abs light be on?

Each wheel has a magnetic sensor and a slotted ring that generates the ABS pulse. The sensor can get dirty (rust, mud and brake dust) and have to be cleaned. The replaceable slotted ring often rusts in older cars. The cable from the wheel sensors to the body, while very tough, can get damaged or disconnected. Its usually the front ones.

You may need new rotors.
Subarus requires the same make and size of tires front and rear. Mixing sizes can cause a mismatch in the ABS signals from each end, and this will often cause the ABS light to come on.
The ABS computer may have failed.

If ABS is working more or less correctly, hitting the brakes on loose dirt or snow/ice should result in the pedal kick back and the buzzing of the ABS valve system.

We have new brake pads and new rotors, now abs light is on, Why

Interesting question. The ABS magnetic sensors on each wheel can get gummed up with dirt, rust and brake dust. Perhaps the brake shop did not clean the sensor properly, or worse, may have damaged one or more when the rotors are replaced. The sensor also has a tough wire up to the chassis. If this is damaged or disconnected, the ABS light will turn on.

Take it back to the shop and have them check.

ESP& ABS indicator light is in

I would be rechecking the rotor position and sensor position on the hub you were working on . check for disconnected wiring or rotor to sensor clearance for the ABS system.

Front passenger brake is pulsing and there is no abs light on in my 1997 pontiac grand prix.I believe it might be abs sensor but don't know where to find it in wheel assembly.

A front brake pulsing with no ABS light is a rotor that is no longer true i.e warped. Pull off the tire and rotate the rotor. Hold a straight edge (ruler) across the outside of the rotor as your rotating the rotor. You will note that it changes distance on the straight edge / ruler as it rotates. (in out wobble) A good way to test for an out of true rotor is to drive at about 45 miles and hour and really stand on the brakes (do not lock them up) If the steering wheel and or brake pedal pulsate... you most likely have a rotor problem. If your rotor has never been "turned" it is probably time to do so.

The ABS sensor is behind the rotor on the lower control arm pointed outward toward the rotor with a flat button face. You can not see the button face with the rotor installed. If the sensor is bad you will have an ABS light. I think your troubleshooting the wrong problem. i.e rotor vs your current focus of the ABS sensor.

I would like some feed back on the running dynamic on the road brake test.

2002 ford E450 abs light stays on after replacing Front rotors & hub assy. I disconnected neg. battery treminal with no luck to reset. Can you help? troubled

On OBD2 vehicles,1996 & up, You need to disconnect battery for an hour or two to discharge memory in computer. Let it sit disconnected for 2 hours. If you cured the problem it will be out & stay out. If it is on there still is an abs problem. Make sure all abs sensors are connected properly & no broken or crimped wires in their harness.

Brakes are pulsating and not braking normal especialy at slow speeds, I suspect ABS issue. Can I just disconnect ABS fuse if to expensive to fix? Can I take it anywhere?

try unbolting the front abs sensors and cleaning rust off from where they bolt to.these vehicles build up rust under the sensor and create a bigger gap

Need any help at all with my Grand Prix '04 Now i know theres alot of diffrent things that it could be I just have no idea where to start. I just bought this car a few weeks ago. Normally Im a honda person but i seen this car and after having it a couple weeks i love it, enough to still want to keep it and fix it myself. Day before yesterday I was going up a grade when it died out on me. No sound no light just died.... I was almost outta gas I live on a reservation and i dont like to get my gas here I prefer to get gas in town as it seams like here its watered down or something because after putting in gas cars just dont run the same after Just my personal opinion/experience anyways I was chancing it to town to put some in and well since i havent had the car that long and dont know it too well i figured thats what it was... Wrong... I put gas in a 8th of a tank and it cranks but no start. so i get it coasted down off the highway and pop the hood well a few things happen here... first i notice that the battery wires are loose they are as tight as can get them when i remeber my dad told me to use a screw or nail to make it tight. so I added a screw to each side and so i go to fix that when i notice there is wires hanging/on top of the alternator belt, the plastic cover is burned/rubbed off and wires are messed up touching,seperated/cut/nolongerconnected so ive spent hours upon hours looking to see what the wires are for and i still havent figured it out i know the basics of a honda or something like that but not at all a mechanic. I know spliced cut wires/reconnect/solder most would say not to do but my family insisted what more could it do..... so the wires are soldered back together... now I ran the codes when i got it to the bottom of the hill day defore yesterday and the codes that came up was P0301,P0036,P0138,P0141,P0336,P0452,P0453 and pending codes P0301,P0138,P0141,P0452,P0453 well i stayed out in middle of no where with it overnight because well didnt want anyone to brake into it. it was FREZZING and becuase no start no heater... the car freaked out on me and turning off and on and my code reader was still connected so it ws beeping randomly. I then towed it home thinking I gotta get spark plugs and wires as i seen it from the codes Mind you not a machanic no idea really what the codes are just what i seen ig so its home now and i put my battery charger on and its fully charged i get in turn to on possition and slap my code reader on and the only codes that come up now are P0452 stored codes P0036, pending codes P0452,P0036 What happen to the spark plug and wire codes? do i just never mind them or what cause it still wont start. Innova3020rs is the codereader ive been using. so any feed back would be appreciated!!!!!
