Q: Slight resistance when driving forward, ABS light is on.

asked by on December 28, 2015

The ABS light is on. After I start the car and attempt to drive forward there are 2 to 3 seconds of resistance as if the brakes are on. This has been happening for about a month.

I would have a mechanic check it out to determine why your ABS light is on. They can check ABS codes with a scan tool to determine the problem. It may be a bad wheel speed sensor.
