My 1998 Malibu had the same problem. The reason that it is on is because your brake sensor is located in your wheel bearing, and most likely your wheel bearing is worn out. I replaced both front wheel bearings and the ABS light is no longer on.

Have vehicle scanned--most auto parts stores will do this free--if no problem they can clear codes

Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine problem or clear codes

Codes will eventually clear on their own if the problem(s) no longer exist. If you can't wait disconnect the battery, reconnect after 30 minutes. The problem with this is you loose clock and radio settings.

After fixing the cause of the problem. you clear code with a scan tool, or by unhooking the battery.

The check engine light goes on because there is a problem with the engine control system. Until the problem is fixed it will continue to come back on even after you clear it by disconnecting the battery.

i have a different make and model of truck, but had the same problem after jump starting mine after the dome light discharged the battery. I found in the Haynes manual that the ECM on the fuel injection might have gotten an error message causing this problem. After charging the battery, I simply had to disconnect the negative battery terminal for 20 seconds or so to clear the ECM and the problem went away. Alternatively in my truck, it could take up to 50 starts for the engine to clear itself, I refused to wait that long. Hope this helps, good luck.

No, you can't clear codes on any vehicle by disconnecting the battery. Thet are stored in the ECM and are still there when you re-connect the battery.

Disconnecting the battery and pumping the brake will clear trouble codes from an ob2 vehicles computer. No it will not. You need to fix the problem

Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Unless you have repaired the problem the light will just come back on.

The codes are telling you there is a problem. If the problem is not fixed the codes will come back.

disconnect negative battery cable.remove instrument cluster,remove 2 screws holding switch in. push the switch about an inch straight back to clear the mounting bracket,then lift it up and out of panel..

Disconnect the battery for 15 minutes. It will clear the codes but will not solve the problem. Best thing is to have the codes read to find a solution.

Assuming you have already fixed the problem that caused the check engine light to come on in the first place, there are a couple ways to turn off the check engine light. The first way, which is the right way, is take it to a mechanic that will use a scanner and clear the codes, or you can simply unhook your battery for a few seconds, and then hook it back up. Either way will work, but if you didnt fix the problem it will come back on.

You can disconnect the battery for a few minutes and that will clear the light. If there is a problem with the engine the check engine light will come back on. If it comes back on you will have to have the computer code read and fix the problem.

User Avatar

the correct way is to use an OBD tool, and clear the codes out of the computer. you can also disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for 5 min. i am baffled as to why you would want to clear the code and not find out what the problem is, if the light is on, you can take it to autozone and they will scan the computer too see what the problem is with the car. .
