Hi all,

need some help here with this, when I start up the car especially in the morning the ABS light that had gone off at position II would light up momentarily when I crank the engine to start.

I was thinking whether it was due to a weak battery since it hardly happens at any other time of the day.

Also when it does happen, cranking the engine appears to take like a fraction of a sec longer than usual.

Apart this there's no other issue with it.

I'll appreciate all the help you've got. Thanks

Does the ABS light stay on after the engine starts? If it stays off then I wouldn't worry about it.

Now if you are still on the original battery from the factory, then you are definitely due for a new battery!

Sounds normal. When you crank the car the ABS is doing a self test at the same time. As long as the light is not on once the engine is running, you are fine.

My ABS light is on and off. I had it scanned, appears to be two wheel speed sensors. Haven't had a chance to do the job yet.
