no
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

O.k.,the first thing that needs to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your model that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to help locate and repair this fault.

There are several sensors and components tied into the abs system that can cause this fault here so the codes do need read out and will help to locate and repair this fault.It is difficult to say for sure from here what needs repaired or replaced without knowing the codes set.If you can get the codes read out and post the code info here this will help just let me know.

A shop or dealer can read out as well as diagnose and repair the fault code for a fee.A local parts store can usually read out fault codes free of charge for you.They usually cannot diagnose the code but they can give you an idea of what is at fault.

One common fault I have seen is a faulty wheel speed sensor needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
