ABS Light illuminated on Van

My ABS light stays on when engine is running. Brakes are good, only 20% of wear. Brake fluid is good. Wheel sensors are good. What can I do to get this fixed?

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2014

    I also have a problem with the battery being drained if you leave the battery connected for four or five days along with the surging of the speedometer and emergency brake light coming on not the abs light.

    The ABS Light came on and I eventually solved the problem. This is the saga of this perplexing problem.

ABS diagnostics requires a scan tool (Chrysler DRB II, DRB III or aftermarket equivalent). the plug is located near the brake pedal. this is the only alternative to get the ABS light off.

ABS/ Traction control light/BAS & brake light on in 2008 dodge grand caravan


It is safe to drive. You need a scan tool to get a code out of it. Could be as simple as a wheel speed sensor going bad. All of these lights will work together normally. The traction control uses the ABS to gain traction, and the Brake Assist System is part of the stability control. Also uses the ABS.

The ABS light on my 2005 Grand Caravan has been on (front wheel speed sensors need replacement). The brake light started coming on intermittently and now stays on, checked the reservoir sensor, and the...


The ABS works according to what the speed sensor tells it. The sensor may be bad or it senses a broken tooth on the tone wheel (the sensor reads these teeth on the tone wheel, found in the hub).
You will still have Brakes, but not the ABS. You can switch the sensors from the good side to the bad to see if it is in fact the sensor itself. Good luck!

ABS = ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM
YOU NEED TO SCAN FOR CODES
MAY BE A WHEEL SENSOR OR TONNER RINGS
COULD BE A CHAFE WIRE
BRAKES HAS RESORTED TO OLD SYLE SYSTEM
THAT IS WHY YOU STILL HAVE BRAKES BUT NOT ABS BRAKES

ABS light and Trac Cont light stay on....


Check your rear brakes and inside the rear Rotors. There are ABS scanners and if Autozone or Oreillys have that type of scanner, they will scan for free.

Because the Trac Control is on the Rear axle all of your problems are probably rearward. What usually happens is the Emergency brake material and the Rotor pads wear down and blind the sensors. Sometimes the Trac Control will destroy the brake linings. The Trac Control works by applying the rear brake to the fastest spinning wheel in an effort to match each rear wheels speed.

When the sensors have debris flying in front of them, they miscount and include the debris in figuring RPM. Someone needs to disassemble and inspect the back brakes.

My brake and anti brake lights stay on all the time


CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT IT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF VOLTAGE LOWER 12 VOLTS THAT WILL CAUSE BRAKE AND ANTI LOCK BRAKE LIGHTS TO COME ON BECAUSE THAT NOT ENOUGH POWER FOR ABS BRAKES OPERATION.IF ALTERNATOR GOOD.BRAKE AND ABS LIGHTS ON ALSO MEANS LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.ALSO. YOU HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.YOU NEED TO HAVE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP CHECK BRAKES SYSTEM.BEFORE BRAKES COMPLETELY FAIL.

My 97 jeep grand cherokee makes a chirping sound under front


The noise and the light may or may not be related. The noise may be the wear indicator on the brake pads touching the rotor (they are supposed to do that when brakes are worn) The abs light triggers off a wheel on the axle end. If you have a bad joint on the axle, it could be noisy and causing the wheel to not have the proper clearance to the abs sensor. You really need to take the wheel and brake assembly off and carefully inspect everything. Make sure all abs sensor wires are undamaged...it doesn't have to be at the same wheel that's chirping.

Changing front brakes in a 2002 dodge grand caravan with abs. done lots of brake jobs in the past but never with abs. is there any difference?


No there is no difference you just do it like normal. Take off the wheel, remove the resivoir cap, take off the caliper, remove the old pads, compress the caliper, install the new pads and put the caliper back on, then the tire, and on to the next.

Make sure you pump the peddle after your done then check the fluid level. If all is good and your not leaking any fluid you should be all good.
