Noticed the ABS light on while driving home. When I pulled into my driveway I Pulled up my handbrake then let it down again, the ABS light went away. I started up the jeep twice more and the ABS light didn't come on. You guys think it's my ABS or just a faulty sensor?
Forgot to add: my jeep is 1998 ZJ 4.0 i6. Brakes changed a year ago, battery changed half a year ago.
It may be a sensor fault if you are lucky. Mine came on when I had a brake line leak near a tire. I assume it just got enough fluid aroudn there to make it hard for the sensor to function.
I never actually took a look at that sensor after the brake line was fixed and the light has stayed on indicating ABS. Since I really am not a fan of ABS brakes on my jeep, so I like that they aren't functioning right now and I have regular brakes.
OP, I have the same year and trim jeep. My light came on and off a few times awhile ago. I took it to a buddies shop with the scanning tools and it was a speed sensor. he said not to worry, but if i wanted to, i could take the fuze and relays out to have a non abs braking vehicle. As the members above have stated, its a preference. But as an Emt who has seen too many accidents...I'd keep the modern safety feature that the jeep was designed to have on it. especially if you didn't grow up in the 70's/80's and have experience with non abs cars. You don't want to make your first emergency maneuver without abs and not know how to properly use the big pedal or not know how the truck is going to react...
ABS? The hell is that? Some new invention? Lol every vehicle I've owned has had broken ABS and traction control.
Check all your sensors (if you wish) or just leave it alone. As long as you know how to drive you really don't need it, and the ABS light won't do anything but annoy you. I get scared when mine goes off..
