You are watching: 1999 dodge dakota abs and brake light on


I recently purchased a "99 Dakota 4x4 Sport through 162,000 miles on it. The brake and ABS lights come on from time to time. Has anyone seen or had actually this trouble before. I very first thought it had actually something to execute with the emergency brake. The brakes were done newly by the previous owner. Also the inspect engine light stays on every the time. The truck runs fine, but I would like to gain this resolved. Autozone states that the O2 sensor, catalytic convertor, or other to execute with the left financial institution maybe the problem. Any aid would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I"m not sure just how it would certainly (or if the would) impact the ABS light, but if the brake fluid is a little low that might cause the brake light to irradiate up. This has been the case in vault vehicles I"ve owned. The owners hand-operated doesn"t specify and I don"t watch it specifically addressed in the Haines hands-on I have (or i haven"t uncovered it yet).

Those have actually nothing to do with the ABS system. The Dakotas have aCAB (Controller ABS Brakes) that monitors the ABS system and also has it"sown unique set of failure codes. It calls for a unique code leader to accessit ~ above it"s very own test plug (not the OBDII check plug that is under the dash board). There must be pigtail connector through 2 wires on the left next of theinner fender in the engine compartment, whereby the grasp cylinder,combination/proportioning valve, HCU and also ABS controller is located.Grounding a cable on this pigtail will give you a rudely flash code thatyou may be able to interpret..Ie: "Flash, pause, flash/flash/flash" would present up ~ above the ABS brake indicator as password "13". Other than that, girlfriend would need to visita dealer to read the ABS controller fail password for you.The ABS controller gets it"s signals from the wheel sensors on every wheelif you have all wheel abs - or - native the rear differential sensor (VSS)if it is theRWAL version (Rear Wheel Anti Lock) version. AFAIK, the speedo is additionally controlledfrom this sensor, therefore if your speedometer is not working correctly, this additionally pointsto this sensor. Usually, it"s a bad wheel sensor or differential sensor but there areother fail codes in the ABS controller together well.
