The ABS warning lights illuminate to alert drivers of a failed safety system. Where to check then?

The ABS warning light will be activated on when it detects problems inside your car. When the light keeps on, it means the core problem is still there to be handled, so with the ABS warning light on, the safety system is basically being paralyzed. Today, let’s check out 5 steps to turn off your ABS Warning Light if it keeps on.

1. Get ready

First and foremost, you need to park your vehicle, turn off the engine while setting the emergency brake and transmission. You need to remove the control module or the tires, so lift jacks are needed, or finding a stage is an alternative.

2. Check the ABS fuse

The ABS fuse is an electrical system, so with time, the fuse is due to blow over time. You need to replace the broken fuse. In case it keeps blowing again and again, it means problems in the ABS computer or pump motor.

3. Check the ABS wheel Sensor

The ABS sensors guarantee the wheel rotation to work properly. This sensor is paired with a wheel stator which is attached to the axle brake rotor, CV joint, or bearing hub. With using, the sensors suffer road conditions or vibration, and short out.

4. Replace the faulty ABS Computer module

If the ABS controller fails to function, the signs are the burnt control coil or humming noise rooted from the system. You need to replace it right away.

5. Check the Stator Ring

The wheel’s rotation speed is controlled by the wheel speed sensor in combination with the other sensor. If the wheel ring gets damaged, the whole system suffers. The damaged ring causes the teeth to be disengaged from other parts, hence deactivates the system. Check if the stator ring is good enough for the system physically.
