Q: ABS Light on

asked by on

The ABS Light is on.

The illumination of the ABS Light indicates a problem in the system, and also shows that the system is temporarily disabled. The vehicle must be scanned through the OBD-II diagnostic port for the information related to the issue. A common failure for ABS systems is the wheel speed sensor located near the wheel and tire assembly. Have a trained technician link with your vehicle, and read the necessary information to inspect the ABS Light illumination issue. Consider YourMechanic as our expert team members come to you.
