Q: ABS light on

asked by on

The ABS light is on in my car.

the ABS light is most likely on due to one or more of the wheel speed sensors going bad. Some front and rear model sensors will need the complete hub replaced. The system will need to be tested to see what sensor is failing. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to come and test your vehicle’s ABS Light and make the necessary repairs.
