brake light on when driving oldsmobile alero
You can remove the ABS and brake light, from your Oldsmobile Alero, by removing the dash cover. The light retaining nut must be removed. The light will come out.
you either have a blown bulb or you have a broken wire
Check the brake pedal switch. Check the bulbs. Check the grounds.
frist the brake light looks like its on but its just the glow of the antilock light it is very bright. the antilock is on your rear axle needs replaceing.
The abs light is on because there is a problem with the system and it is not functioning. You need to have the codes read to determine what the problem is. Until the problem is fixed the light will remain on.
what does the engine light on the 1999 olds alero mean
It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem with the antilock brake system ( as long as the red " brake " light in your dash is not on you still have " normal " braking )
your brake fluid is probably low or very dirty.
The brake light switch is located under the dash drivers side under a sound cover held in place by 2 screws, not that hard to remove.
Antilock Brake Light comes on and stays on when the ABS computer detects some problem with the antilock brakesystem components. You will still have normal brake use, but the Antilock system will probably not work as an Antilock brake system is supposed to work. ABS system diagnostic code readers are available and are recommended for diagnostic purposes, however fixing ABS systems is perhaps best left up to the Pros. . .
It is on because there is a problem with the Antilock Brake System (ABS).
