Customer Question
The ABS and Brake...

The ABS and Brake light sometimes will go on and off, then occasionally the engine light will stay on after the ABS & Brake lights go off. Some days it does not light up at all and other days for a few miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Both are on.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Saab?

2001 93 convertible with 50,000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Convertible yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have a company which has used the computer which shows a communication interruption from the ASB to the engine module.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have replaced the sensor s on both front wheels. The lights still come on and off. Sometimes when the lights are on there was no function to the speedometer.
