My dealer says the ABS modulator is bad. He is ordering this $1100 part and it should fix the problems. Fortunately it is under warrenty. Without the fix, the ABS will not work.

I am assuming you mean the dashboard handbrake warning light. On many modern cars, the handbrake warning light comes on when the brake fluid is low. The early indication of this is when the light comes on when going around a corner and then goes out once you straighten up. If the fluid gets really low the light will stay lit.

What causes the warning light for the handbrake to stay on even though the handbrake is off on the dashboard?

i asked the question but have since found out the problem, it turned out to be a low fluid level in the brake master cylinder. i found out by sideways banging to the brake foot pedal which made the warning light flicker which led me to believe something was amiss under the bonnet and connected to the brake pedal is the master cylinder !! silly old me. now iv`e got to find out where the fluid is going if it does. one does live and learn !!. so whilst the warning light serves the purose of letting you know the handbrake is still on it also is telling you the brake fluid is low. my clio (19995) is an automatic.

Why is the Emergency brake light on in a corolla?

If the handbrake light stays on when handbrake is off the easiest thing to check first is the brake fluid level. The light was on for a month on my '96 Corolla before I noticed the low brake fluid level. After topping the fluid up the light no longer came on while driving. Note that you should only use freshly opened brake fluid - stuff that has been open for a while will have absorbed moisture from the air reducing its effectiveness. If the brake fluid level is OK then the handbrake cable probably needs adjusting (probably loosening) so the light does not come on too soon, or stay on when it shouldn't. Another possibility is the parking brake engagement sensor, a mechanical switch that is engaged when the parking brake lever is activated. It may have gotten stuck in the on position and need to be cleaned or replaced.

What would cause the interior lights on my jeep to stay on?

When you open your door there is a button that is spring loaded and pops out to turn the light on. When you close the door it pushes the button in to turn it off.If that button is stuck or damaged it will stay on . or If a wire is pinched it will ground out causing the light to stay on. Or you have a switch that dials up the dashboard lights from dim to high , If you roll that button past high it turns on the light . Roll it back and you will feel it click and your light will turn off.
