Default What Causes An ABS Light To Go On?

Hey guys so tomorrow I'm going to be checking out a car, everything seems fine, car is all stock but the guy tells me the only problem is that the ABS light came on 2 days ago, he's been driving it like that since with no problems but I'm still wondering what it's for, he said he changed the brakes about 4 months ago if that matters, my question is what can cause an ABS light to come out? Thanks for any help

Something is faulty with the ABS system.

You should still have breaks, just not anti lock breaks controlled by the computer.

^^^^^THIS

My moms ABS light came on two weeks ago and she had to use the shift over ride in order to shift from park into drive. I believe the service adviser said it was a fuse or a relay, said you will have brakes just not anti-lock brakes.

If you slam on brakes now, you won't be able to steer, you'll only slide in the direction your wheels are turned.

The anti-lock brakes pulsate allowing you to steer the car when slamming on the brakes in an emergency situation.

Ohhh okay gotcha, so how exactly do I find out what's causing this? Does a professional mechanic have to check it out?

The service adviser at the Infiniti dealership said it was a bad fuse/relay and they changed it, and the light went away and the car is fine now. I don't have anymore experience than that, I don't know what all it entails.

This is something I wouldn't mess with. A fuse is an easy (and cheap) fix but there is no guarantee that's what's going on with your car.

I wouldn't buy until I knew exactly what was wrong with the ABS.
