Default ABS Light

Alright, so my ABS light is randomly on, sometimes.

I can go 5 minutes driving, and it will turn on, or I can go about 45 minutes, and then it will turn on.

I looked around under the truck, and nothing looks wrong, and I have plenty of brake fluid.

Any idea on what this is?

Sounds like a loose connector or a broken wire.

Alright, so did you take the wheel off?

I'm thinking about going to Les Schwab or something.

Clean your abs sensors, I had similar problem and cleaned the abs sensors, never lit up again. The abs sensors are located inside the hub assembly. U have to remove tire, caliper, brake disk, then u get to see it. Follow the wire that goes into the hub. Just my 0.02

Great Info! I have a similar problem with my ABS light coming on. It appears that if I throttle more than 50% the light comes on. I'm replacing my rotors this week (need inspection sticker) So I will have access to the sensors. i just have one question. What do you clean the sensors with?
