Is It Safe To Drive A Car With ABS Light On??

If both the ABS and brake system light come on at the same time, your vehicle is no longer safe to drive.

This means there is a serious problem with the braking system, and continuing to drive puts yourself and others at risk of a car crash.

This is completely normal and it means the ABS system is working normally.

What causes ABS light to come on and stay on?

An ABS warning light that comes on and stays on could signal a problem with various components in and related to the anti-lock brakes. The warning light can even come on if a fuse blows or if the brake fluid level is low in the brake master cylinder (or in the ABS reservoir if the vehicle is so equipped).

How do I fix the ABS on my car?

An anti lock warning light will be in different places in the instrument cluster for each car, and it maybe accompanied by a red warning light.

  • Step 1: Check ABS Fuse.
  • Step 2: Test the ABS Wheel Sensor.
  • Step 3: Replace an ABS Wheel Speed Sensor.
  • Step 4: Replace the ABS Computer Module.
  • Step 5: Checking the Stator Ring.

What can cause ABS light to come on?

This in turn makes it one of the more common causes of the ABS light coming on. When the wheel speed sensor alerts the ABS that the wheels are moving at different speeds, a hydraulic valve is responsible for releasing, or increasing, the brake fluid pressure to prevent the wheels from losing traction with the ground.
