How turn off abs and brake light from panel.

What ever is wrong with the ABS is going to have to get fixed before the light will stay off. Not sure why the brake light would be on was there a brake line leak somewhere? Or is the e-brake pressed down a little bit?


Although similar, these two faults typically have different causes. The ABS light is telling you the ABS system is not working properly - it may just be a wheel sensor or, possibly, the pump that is the core of the system. The brake lamp is telling you there is a problem with your brake system that is not an ABS issue. Did you loose any fluid or create a leak in a fluid line when replacing the pads? Check the fill level of your reservoir and, after insuring it is showing it is full, monitor the level after several days of operations. Changing pads should not have gotten air in the lines but if you did loose fluid the lines should have been bled at the time.

Sometimes it is just the sensor connection that comes loose I would check those

99% of the time you see you're ABS light, it is likely a faulty wheel speed sensor, which can be fixed by replacing the wheel hub assembly, as they come with new wheel speed sensors (vehicle would need to be scanned/diagnosed to ensure the cause, and to let you know which sensor is bad so you don't have to guess if/when replacing the hub(s)). The red "Brake" light means that you are low on brake fluid or the parking brake is depressed. Adding fluid to a system that is low will immediately turn the red "Brake" light off, although it's strange that it would illuminate after replacing the brake pads, because doing so will push more brake fluid back into the reservoir. Sometimes, having your vehicle serviced and/or repaired by a professional is the best idea!
