Q: Q: ABS light illuminated

asked by on

The ABS light is on.

Hello. I strongly suggest having the ABS system evaluated by a technician. There are components that could fail which will cause the ABS light to illuminate such as the wheel speed sensor, the abs module, or a hydraulic issue. The ABS light may indicate a failure which could be dangerous to you and to other motorists. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the brake system on your vehicle and replace any failing parts.
