ABS light stays on on a 1999 sat urn sl2

ANY Dash Light you get, that comes on or stays on after
the motor is running is a possible problem & a possible
fault code should be checked for

I'm at a loss with this site & the questions, because we have had these codes & vehicle systems for well over 30 years, yet no one knows the vehicle is in trouble & you have to check for codes

You need to run to a repair shop within a day, every time any
dash light or check engine light comes on,not ask questions
or continue to use the car

Any codes you get can be googled, to find the system that set
the fault light

I have 06 ram diesel. cold air comes in on passengerside no matter where heater controls are set.

I am wondering if the truck was in a wreck and was not properly repaired.
Take a strong flashlight at night and shine it under the hood, moving it slowly around, and have someone else inside the truck looking to see if the light comes through under the dash.
Also, shine the light under the truck.
You can also put the light inside the truck and look outside.
It is also possible a vent flap is stuck inside the heater allowing fresh air to come in, bit it sounds more like a hole somewhere, or more particularly, a rubber gasket or hole cover is missing on your firewall. The firewall is the metal panel between the engine and the inside of the truck.
Be blessed.

My saturn makes a noise under the dash only when i first start off and the lights will flicker but it does it every tine i start the car. after the noise every thing is fine

if it sounds like a tin-metal rattle, it is your abs unit switching on (about 3-4 miles per hour)-if you remove the connector to it (in front of the master cylinder) your abs light will go on-shut the car off, start it, and drive-no noise. It only does it when you first move after starting, or if the ABS is engaged like braking hard on a slippery surface. the fact that your lights dim means you should check the condition of your battery and alternator, since when the ABS is activated it draws a decent amount of current. It might be an early advance warning that your battery or alternator are not up to snuff.

How do I realize, that it has ABS system, thanks.

when you start the car, all of the dash lights come on. this is to ensure that the warning lights are working. if a yellow light comes on that has the letters ABS, then you have ABS. or open the hood and look near the master brake cylinder, located on the drivers side on the firewall (dividing wall between engine and passenger compartment). there will be a device with small cylindrical actuators attached to it with brake lines attached.

Car won't start!!! & ABS Light on

Sounds like carbon build up on the contacts inside the electrical ignition switch which is not the key cylinder. Its located on the lower steering coluum if coluum shift or if you have a floor shift it will be inside the console
