Q: Problems with ABS

asked by on

The ABS light is on, and the odometer stopped working.

The odometer most likely stopped because there is a problem with the vehicle speed sensor. This sensor tells the computer how fast and how far the car is going, so it knows how many miles to count on the odometer. This problem will likely cause the ABS Light to come on as well. I would ask for assistance from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic, so they can diagnose the cause of the ABS Light.
