Dashboard Warning Lights

When you notice your anti-lock brake system light comes on and stays on in your vehicle, bring your car to the experts at John's Auto and Tire. Our shop provides ABS warning light repair to customers in Ipswich, MA, Hamilton, MA, Rowley, MA, and surrounding areas.

What Happens When the ABS Light Comes On?

When your vehicle’s ABS warning light comes on, this means that your anti-lock brake system has deactivated. Your brakes will brake as usual, however, a wheel could lock or your vehicle could spin when the brakes are applied.

If your ABS light comes on and stays on, it is necessary to bring your vehicle to our shop immediately. Our mechanics will diagnose and treat the problem quickly, and get you and your vehicle back on the road.

Other Signs of ABS System Problems

If your anti-lock brake system warning light comes on, it may be a sign of another issue. Typically, the ABS light indicates a malfunction in one of your vehicle’s wheel sensors. An illuminated warning light may also be the indicator of low brake fluid levels, loss of hydraulic pressure in one of the brake circuits, or another issue.

Our mechanics are trained to pinpoint the exact problem and then provide professional ABS system repair.

When you notice you ABS light comes on, don’t put off visiting our shop. Restore your safety with a thorough ABS system repair.

About SRS Warning Lights

Your vehicle’s supplemental restraint system (SRS) warning light is more commonly known as the airbag system light. The warning light should only illuminate when there is a problem with your vehicle’s supplemental restraint system.

Learn some tips to make sure your SRS system is working properly:

  • Every time you turn on the car, the computer in the vehicle checks the system.
  • The light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off to show that it's working.
  • If it remains on, then there's a problem with the system, and the airbag may not deploy in an accident.

If your supplemental restraint system is malfunctioning, your vehicle will not be safe in case of accident or collision. A faulty SRS system means that airbags will not deploy, seatbelts will not tighten, and any consequential features will not activate. A properly working SRS system is vital.

“Check Engine” Light – People often take a vehicle in for service if the “Check Engine” light on their dash comes on. The “Check Engine” light can come on for a variety of reasons. Some are very easy to fix, such as resetting a sensor or performing an oil change. Others are more complex and require one or more items to be repaired to correct the problem. If there is a serious problem with the vehicle, the sooner the vehicle comes in for engine diagnostic testing, the better, as problems often times worsen over time.

Why is my TPMS light on?

When your tire pressure monitoring system detects an underinflated or overinflated tire, the TPMS light comes on in your vehicle. There are many reasons why your tires change pressure levels, activating your TPMS light. These include:

  • Weather: Hot weather causes tires to overinflate, and cold weather causes tires to deflate. If your TPMS light is on during a particularly hot or cold day, it may be due to your weather
  • Time: Tires deflate over time. If you notice your TPMS light, it may be due to one of more of your tires losing air from age
  • Road Hazards: While driving, you may run over a nail or other item, puncturing your tire. In this case, your TPMS light turns on because your tire is actively losing air
