The abs the handbrake and the traction lights all came.on together. I think I forgot to take the handbrake off and tried to drive then realised and pulled over and took it off and the 3 lights have been on since Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too? The 3 lights. The handbrake light, thanks light and the traction lights(the off traction light also) which is really 4 lights Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car? Toyota Hilux 2013 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far? I hope. I haven't tried anything Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? No I think that's it

No phone calls i can't do this. this is an option from JA not me. do not click on this Greg Do you have a diagnostic scan tool to check for malfunction codes in the ABS system?

I also don't have cell phone reception
Automotive Expert
Same problem here no reception for calls . we don't need it no worries What we need to do is get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for ABS malfunction codes. this will help us find what is causing you this problem. Greg

I don't have a diagnostic scan tool. I read on another site to disconnect the positive on the battery and press the foot brake?I don't have cell phone reception
Automotive Expert
Disregard the call option Disconnecting the battery will just clear the malfunction codes that we need to have? and reset the management system. Plus ABS system will not clear with the battery disconnected only the engine and transmission system, So disconnecting the battery for the ABS issue will not work. Need without any doubt a scan tool is needed in this case. Greg

Thanks for your email Greg I look forward to your reply. As it is just about midnight here in NZ would you be able to research the dilemma and come back to me in 8 hours NZ time which would make it 07:15 am.
Automotive Expert
Yes, no problem but I need you in the meantime to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for ABS malfunction codes. With the malfunction codes, I will be able to help you Gregf

I will ask around, then come back to you tomorrow some time. Thank you Greg
