RAM 2500 Truck 2WD V8-5.7L (2008)
ABS Light: Description and Operation
An Antilock Brake System (ABS) indicator is standard equipment on all instrument clusters. However, the instrument cluster can be programmed to
disable this indicator on vehicles that are not equipped with the ABS or Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brake systems, which are not available in some
markets. This indicator is located near the lower edge of the instrument cluster, between the tachometer and the speedometer.
The ABS indicator consists of a stencil-like cutout of the International Control and Display Symbol icon for Failure of Anti-lock Braking System in
the opaque layer of the instrument cluster overlay. The dark outer layer of the overlay prevents the indicator from being clearly visible when it is not
illuminated. An amber Light Emitting Diode (LED) behind the cutout in the opaque layer of the overlay causes the indicator to appear in amber through
the translucent outer layer of the overlay when it is illuminated from behind by the LED, which is soldered onto the instrument cluster electronic circuit
The ABS indicator is serviced as a unit with the instrument cluster.
