ABS light on dashboard - what does it mean? We get this question a lot. Sometimes it can be illuminated with other lights aswell. It basically means that the signal from the ABS sensor or ABS module to the ECU has been interupted. Generally this type of dashboard fault indicates that an ABS sensor needs to be either changed or cleaned.
Modern vehicles have an ABS sensor on each corner so how do we know which ABS sensor has failed, or how do we know that its even an ABS sensor problem in the first place? Well you will need to use an ABS diagnostic tool. An ABS diagnostic tool will communicate with the module and tell you where the problem is.
