abs light

I just went through this, and it turned out to be low brake fluid. ABS troubles can be expensive to fix - I've been told the minimum to hook the system up to the diagnostic computer will be about $600. When my ABS finally does go, I'll just be pulling out the actuator and removing the system alltogether.

But to solve your problem, make sure all sensors and connections are clean. Check to see if the plunger in the brake fluid resevoir is ****ed and stuck (it should be free-floating on top). The ABS light coming on can also indicate brake problems other than with the ABS.
