Most likely a speed sensor at one of the front wheels has attachment broken.

The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the ABS. The ABS will not function when the light is on. The light will remain on until the problem is fixed.

it could be that one or all of your sensors are faulty, it could be the abs relay is faulty or it could be the abs pump that is faulty ( or it could also be a fuse )

the rotors do not have the ridges so the abs sensor can see something.did you purt abs rotors or non-abs rotors on vehicle. most cars light up brake when low on brake fluid, a few cars light up ABS to show same thing. Of course there is the possibility that there really is something wrong with the ABS circuit.

No, if the light is on all the time there is a problem with the ABS system. Have this looked into by a professional.

There could be something wrong with the ABS system and check the ABS sensors on all wheels. Also check the connections to the ABS unit and the traction control button.

User Avatar

that all depends on what code it is giving you , then repair what is wrong with the system .

The ABS light may indicate that the ABS system isn't working. The one in my van is coming on and going off from time to time. My mechanic says to wait until it is on all the time and he will replace the ABS module. The tire gauge light could mean that one or more of the tires have low pressure.

It means that the ABS computer has detected a fault with the ABS circuit, meaning that there is a problem with a wheel speed sensor, the ABS computer or the actuator. You'll need to have the ABS diagnostic codes read to find out what the computer thinks is wrong.

I had the ABS light the light (which is the TCS indicator light) and the TCS light all on at the same time. Turned out to be one of my ABS sensors. According to my repair manual it states many diff things with all 4 lights involved with the TCS/ABS system. If its just the TCS system and not ABS then you will have only the TCS light on. If you have all 4 lights on (the 3 mentioned above) and the (Brake) light on then you have a problem with your entire ABS system. Hope this helps.

If the ABS light is on in your guage cluster, that indicates there is a problem with the ABS system. In another spot on this website the fellow says to : check your brake fluid level check your fuses check the electrical connection to the ABS pump. If you don't find anything wrong then take it in for service. I was lucky, my ABS light came on and when I touched the ABS fuse in the power distribution box in the engine compartment, it made a click sound and the ABS light went out. I guess the fuse wasn't installed all the way.

The abs light stays on when there is a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool to know possible causes.

User Avatar

your abs sensor light is on probably becuase the abs in one or all of your breaks are not working, take it to a mechanic so they can tell you if that is for sure the problem.

ABS stands for Anti-Lock Brake System. If the ABS light is on, your ABS has a problem. Clean all wheel sensors of any debris. If that does not help, Seek out a professional for this repair.

There is something wrong with your Anti-lock Brake System It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem As long as the " BRAKE " light in your dash is not on , you still have " normal " brakes * in my case , the ABS light suddenly stayed on and the first ABS fuse that I checked was not installed all the way . I touched the fuse with my finger , heard a " click " , and the ABS light went out ( just lucky I guess , but also suspicious of how that could have happened )

The light is on because the ABS (antilock brake system) has a problem. When the light is on the ABS is not functioning. The light will not go off until the problem is fixed. Many auto parts stores will read the trouble codes from your vehicle's computer for zip if you purchase the parts necessary to fix the problem from them. When the problem is fixed the light will go off by itself.

User Avatar

That Could be 1 of 2 things, ABS module or ABS wheel sensor. If it comes on when you start moving, it is most likely the ABS wheel sensor. If it does it all the time, most likely ABS module.

No. If the G6 in question has ABS, when you first turn the car on you should see the light for ABS on the instrument panel.

There is something going on in your brakes (ABS that is) most places do brake checks free of charge. Go to Midas if there is one near you, they are the most honest.

Something has gone wrong with the Antilock Brake System . It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem As long as the red " BRAKE " light is not on in your dash you still have " normal " braking * in my case , the ABS warning light suddenly came on and the first ABS fuse that I checked was not installed all the way . I touched the fuse with my finger , heard a click , and the ABS warning light went out ( I don't know how that could have happened to the fuse ! )

I had a the same problem on my 2000 Dodge 1500 Pickup. ABS light & Brake light was on all the time and ABS pump/motor would not shut off even when key was turned off and out of the ignition. I found out the problem was the ABS control module so I bought & replaced it myself. The ABS light & brake light turned off. But then the ABS light was flashing on/off. I looked high & low for the solution for the ABS light flashing on/off and I found it in the service manual, (WHEN THE ABS MODULE IS REPLACED YOU NEED TO RESET THE COMPUTER) The only way to do this is go to the dealer and have them reset the computer. My dealer cost me $48.00 to reset the computer in 5 minutes time.... I have a code reader but I do not have one that programs like the dealer has and when I looked online at the price to buy the programing code reader, it cost $5,500.00 I guess the $ 48.00 is not bad after all... Sorry for the long winded response but I was trying to cover all bases.. Good Luck Signguy

It is more question than the answer. I have ABS light on all time and turn off light on also all time (talking about ther ABS brake system on Chevy impala 2001 ls 3.8. I drive ok and brakes are ok. But light stays on makes me nervious all time. Someone said cut them to the hell! But I want to cut them off by right way: to understand why light on and how to stop the problem. Pads are new? everything ok and there isn't any wrong in brakes working. Others say something here is dirty I need to clean for contacts. Other also say a unit ABS computer ar center. No idea what reason ! Tell me please someone in order i can drive my car without being nerviuos on this reason all time thinking about that. Evern can't take a baby to the car she will say your brakes don't work we can't have the love on the hill tyou car can move from the hill itself to the river... Ha-ha-ha...

ABS Light is on because there is a problem detected with the ABS system. Every time you start the vehicle the ABS system goes through a self test. If it detects a problem the light is illuminated. Once the problem is repaired correctly the system will turn the light off all by itself. Have the codes read by your local auto parts store at no cost then determine what the next step should be to make repairs.

The easiest way to turn the light off is to remove the lamp. However, the ABS unit will still not work and the vehicle could slide if the brakes are applied hard.
