Intrepid V6-3.2L VIN J (1998)
ABS Light: Description and Operation
The ABS system uses a yellow colored ABS Warning Lamp. The ABS warning lamp is located on the left side of the instrument panel, in the instrument
cluster. The purpose of the warning lamp is discussed in detail below.
The ABS warning lamp will turn on when the CAB detects a condition which results in a shutdown of ABS function or when the body controller floes
not receive C2D messages from the Controller Antilock Brakes (CAB). When the ignition key is turned to the on position, the ABS Warning Lamp is on
until the CAB completes its self tests and turns the lamp off (approximately 4 seconds after the ignition switch is turned on). Under most conditions,
when the ABS warning lamp is on, only the ABS function of the brake system is affected. The standard brake system and the ability to stop the car will
not be affected when only the ABS warning lamp is on.
The ABS warning lamp is controlled by the CAB and the body controller through a diode located in the wiring harness junction block. The junction
block is located under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. The CAB controls the lamp by directly grounding the circuit.
