Q: Why is my ABS light on-on the dash?

asked by on

Recently had brake work on the front brakes .Sounds like some rear brake noise now.ABS is lit up on the dash.

My car has 115000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The ABS system turns on the light when it sees a fault in one of its sensors or output components. In order to properly diagnose the system, you will need to have the ABS system scanned to see if there is a code to one of the wheel sensors. If you would like to have this checked, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s to inspect the brake system and diagnose the ABS Light.
