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

Your ABS light may be on because you are low on brake fluid. Another reason the light may be on is because your brakes are failing.

Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem

It is blinking because there is a problem with the Antilock Brake System (ABS). Seek professional help. Your normal brakes will still work as they should even though the ABS may not.

The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the ABS system. The ABS light will remain on until it is fixed. The ABS system will not function as long as the ABS light remains on.
