If the ABS light is on you have codes. You need to communicate with the ABS control module. You need factory level scan tool to find out where the problem may be

    True, but to go further ... there is more than one computer in most any vehicle on the road today. A general check for codes will read the engine control codes. These are not the same as, or in the same place, as ABS codes. Another common onboard is the body control module; which would have yet another set of codes and its own procedure for reading them. Accessing these other code sets often requires a more advanced scanner, or a different procedure, though not always dealership(I don't know specifically for Subaru). Paul's is right, if the light is on there are code(s) present. I just wanted to explain it further. Lacking ability to read them, give it a good visual inspection ... wheel speed sensors, wiring, fluid leaks/levels, etc. You might get lucky.

Abs subaru outback 1999 not light, no error codes but does not work.

Have the abs removed and checked for operation. If you press the pedal hard enough to produce a skid but it doesn't then the abs is working. Under heavy braking from speed you will get a pulsating feeling in the pedal as the brakes are released and then re applied very quickly. If you are finding that no mater how hard you press there appears to be no assistance to brake then the problem will be in the booster and not the ABS.

2009 subaru impreza 2.5i will not go into reverse or park the AT Oil Temp light on ABS and Traction control lights on

There is something wrong with your transmission (and most likely your ABS and TCS). You'll need to have the trouble codes read and diagnosed.

After driving and spinning my wheels in the snow, the check engine light and abs light come on. This happened in a previous snowstorm as well, but the dealer couldn't find any problem, and no code was...

I assume the abs sensor,or sensors had ice on them causing the problem,this most likely can not be corrected unless the dealer can come up with a shield of some sort to block the ice build up on the sensors.

2008 pontiac g5,abs light after tried to move in snow , low traction light came with abs but tracton light went off and abs light stays on. can abs freeze up

You may have damaged one of the sensors or tore the wire off. You will have to take it to someone with a, "high quality scanner" and have them get the code out of the computer on your car. Most $100 scanners won't pull the ABS codes out.

Abs light on, cruise control and engine light 2007 subaru outback

55 EGR Temperature Sensor or Circuit

ABS light is nothing to do with code 55 separate fault circuits.

Under dash there are two wires with mini spades at the end, connect one of them to the single black multiplug in position 2. Thats RHS plug inlet when you hold plug with tab lock on top.
ABS sensor should then flash up error coded. Ignore code 11 thats a initial flash to let you nknow the difference between a fast and slow flash.

Let me know what code flashes up and I will tell you the symptom,
