Hi, the problem most likely lies in the car's central computer or ABS sensor, but it can also be from something else in the brake or electrical system.
Disconnect the positive cable from the car battery, and then hold down on the brake pedal to drain the car's electrical system. This will reset the car's central computer. Plug the positive cable back to restore the power. Even if this doesn't totally reset the light, it should stay off for up to 1 week.

Change the ABS sensor if the light comes back on. Unscrew the housing for the sensor that is mounted to the wheel hub and unplug the wire, then attach and mount a new sensor. You might need to reset the computer again as described above.

Connect an OBD code reader to your car's on-board diagnostics system to determine any other causes of the brake light. Look for codes related to the brakes that appear on the reader, indicating any parts on the brakes that need repair or replacement.

Why is abs light on


Because your brakes need to be checked.

What is anti lock


If you are referring to "anti-lock brakes", or "ABS", it means that when you depress the brake pedal hard enough, your computer recognizes the pressure and pulsates the brakes to prevent your wheels from locking up and the traditional skidding you see in movies.

ABS stops you quicker in emergency situations.

I cannot afford to replace the anti lock module and have heard I can unplug it and use my brakes without the ABS system. Is this true and do I just unplug the electrical cord from the ABS module box? My...


You shouldn't even have to unplug the module. If the ABS light is illuminated it means there is a fault in the system and your ABS is not working properly. If you are driving it, you are currently driving without ABS brakes.

These do not seem related to me.
For ABS and traction light, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6003525-abs_traction_control_lights . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me.

for service engine, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check.

for frame, please explain the symptom you experience.

Srs and anti lock brakes and light engaged now i have no braking


park it, get it towed (unless you know someone that can fix it) and have a shop go over it to find out what happened. Most likely the master cylinder has failed.
