How to reset ABS warning light Toyota Prius.

The light comes on when the “IG−ON” mode is enabled. If the anti−lock brake system and the brake assist system work properly, the light turns off after the “READY” light comes on. Thereafter if the system malfunctions, the light comes on again. When the “ABS” warning light is on (and the brake system warning light is on), the anti−lock brake system does not operate, but the brake system still operates conventionally.

If any of the following conditions occurs, this indicates a malfunction somewhere in the parts monitored by the warning light system. Contact your Toyota dealer as soon as possible so service the vehicle.

  • The light does not come on when the “IG−ON” mode is enabled, or the light remains on after the “READY” light comes 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 remains on together with the red 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 function and brake assist function will fail but also the vehicle will become extremely unstable during braking.

Any of the following conditions may occur, but does not indicate the malfunction:

  • The light may stay on for about 60 seconds after the hybrid system is started. It is normal if it turns off after a while.
  • Depressing the brake pedal repeatedly may turn on the light. It is normal if it turns off after a few seconds.
