How to reset ABS warning light indicator Toyota Rav4, 2 generation XA20 and 3 generation XA30.

The light comes on when the engine switch is turned to the “ON” position. If the anti−lock brake system and the brake assist system work properly, the light turns off after a few seconds. Thereafter, if either of the systems malfunctions, the light comes on again. When the “ABS” warning light is on (and the brake system warning light is off), the following systems do not operate, but the brake system still operates conventionally.

  • Anti−lock brake system.
  • Brake assist system.
  • Traction control system.
  • “AUTO LSD” system.
  • Enhanced vehicle stability control system.
  • Downhill assist control system.
  • Hill−start assist control system.

When the “ABS” warning light is on (and the brake system warning light is off), the anti−lock brake system does not operate so that the wheels could lock up during a sudden braking or braking on slippery road surfaces.

If either of the following conditions occurs, this indicates a malfunction somewhere in the components monitored by the warning light. Contact your Toyota dealer as soon as possible to service the vehicle.

  • The light does not come on when the engine switch is turned to the “ON” position, or remains on.
  • The light comes on while you are driving.

A warning light turning on briefly during operation does not indicate a problem.

If the ABS warning light indicator is on can be a problem at the ABS sensor, change the sensor and the warning light will go off.

All information how to reset ABS warning light indicator is taken from Toyota Rav 4 owners manual.

If the “ABS” warning light remains on together with the brake system warning light, immediately stop your vehicle at a safe place and contact your Toyota dealer. In this case, not only the anti−lock brake system will fail but also the vehicle will become extremely unstable during braking.

    I put in a new brake sensor and the warning lights won’t go out, any help is appreciated.

    1. It means that the problem is not with the sensors but with the circle on the wheel towards which the sensor is directed, it is a circle with many holes in it, it’s hard to explain.
