#2458 of 2501 Intermittent ABS light.
Dec 14, 2009 (11:03 am)
I have an intermittent ABS light coming on after driving on the wet roads or thru the slush. Then sometime it goes off while driving. When engine is stopped and restarted, it goes off. I would think if wires was damaged and salt/water would short the sensor, it would not reset after restarting the engine. In anticipation of this problem, I have RTV sealed the connector back wire seals in the summer when I also changed the rotors. It was getting the same problems last year in the winter. Summer was trouble free. Convoluted tubing is done but I used electrical tape to protect wires. Wires looked ok. Maybe there is a buildup on the sensor surface and it can not read the rotor signal? Can the sensor be cleaned?
Thanks in advance!

I worked as a mechanic for many years in the mid to late 90's, and I have to say I have never heard of such, you are correct that the braking system is a sealed system, he may have been thinking that if you slam on the brakes very hard, you can blow out a wheel cylinder on drum brakes thus allowing air into the system, check all 4 wheels brakes, do not judge drums by just looking under the car to find a wet spot on the back bottom side of the drum, brake fluid can mix with brake dust and form a "dough" inside the drum.

I have a problem with the digital odometer, just happened this morning. When I start the van the odometer works, then suddenly turns off and display screen goes blank?

My van's abs light is on. It comes on as soon as I move the van in any direction. Never had a problem with it until I changed the head gasket. Any thoughts?

yes they do need to be reset
but you can reset them yourself just go to your owners manual and it will tell you how to reset them what you have to do is press the lock and unlock at the same time for 7 seconds and it should reset.
