ABS warning light

- If any of the following conditions

- If any of the following conditions occur, we recommend that you have the ABS system repaired at the first available opportunity by your SUBARU dealer.

The warning light does not illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position.

The warning light illuminates when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, but it does not turn off even when the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 8 mph (12 km/h).

The warning light illuminates during driving.

- When the warning light is on (and the brake system warning light is off), the ABS function shuts down. However, the conventional brake system continues to operate normally.

With a vehicle equipped with an EBD system, the ABS warning light illuminates together with the brake system warning light if the EBD system malfunctions. For further details of the EBD system malfunction warning, refer to Brake system warning light.

NOTE
If the warning light behavior is as described in the following items, the ABS system may be considered normal.

- The warning light illuminates right after the engine is started but turns off immediately, remaining off.

- The warning light remains on after the engine has been started, but it turns off when the vehicle speed reaches approximately 8 mph (12 km/h).

- The warning light illuminates during driving, but it turns off immediately and remains off.

When driving with an insufficient battery voltage such as when the engine is jump started, the ABS warning light may illuminate.

This is due to the low battery voltage and does not indicate a malfunction.

When the battery becomes fully charged, the light will turn off.
