light, at Nordonia Goodyear Tire & Service, we have the information you need to understand why that light

open or your parking brake up.
Simply review the dashboard indicators below and learn all about your
dashboard lights. If you are in a bad situation or require immediate
assistance, call us at (330) 467-9041 and we will do everything it takes to get you
back on the road safely and with confidence.
Anti-Lock Brake System Light
The Anti-Lock Brake System Light, also known as the ABS Light,
indicates that there is a malfunction in your vehicle’s anti-lock
brake system. The malfunction is logged by your vehicle’s onboard
computer system and the applicable OBD2 codes are readable only with
diagnostic tools. Issues triggering your Anti-Lock Brake System
Light can range in nature from a dirty wheel sensor to loss of
voltage. When the ABS light triggers, your anti-lock brake system
disengages and does not turn back on until your vehicle is serviced.
Even if the ABS light is on, you should have normal brake pedal and
stopping capabilities. For more
information see: Brakes.
