Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

The reason the warning lights are on is either because the ABS module has seen a failure and set fault codes, or they may be on because the ABS module isn't communicating with the instrument cluster due to loss of power or ground or internal failure. Either way, it's not possible that there are no fault codes if the warning lights are on.

If they told you there were no fault codes it was either because they didn't want to work on it or they didn't have the equipment or knowledge to be able to read the codes. If you're not equipped to diagnose this problem yourself then I would recommend seeing your dealer's service department to diagnose it.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
