Can you drive with an ABS Light on?

The question recently asked, was "Can I drive my car with the ABS light on?"

The question recently asked, was "Can I drive my car with the ABS light on?" Welcome to Mercie J auto care where compassion and craftsmanship come together I’m Rick Smith ASE master certified technician. I'll do some other videos on what an ABS system actually is, but one of the things you might want to be aware about is the warning lights on your dash. They are color-coded. You have red, yellow and some are blue or green. Red means you should stop. There’s something that’s not good and you could damage the car or maybe there's something unsafe. Yellow means get car serviced as quickly as possible and drive with caution until you get there. Green or blue usually means somethings not quite warmed up, so just drive easy until that goes away and then you’re good to go but they don’t mean there’s any problem. The ABS light is yellow so it does mean if the car seems to be stopping OK for you and everything seems to be working that you’ve seen drive the car but the ABS system is not going to function. So some of your safety features are not gonna be there, so yes you can drive the car but you should get it looked at and you should get it repaired but to get you where you need to go just drive carefully knowing that the ABS is not gonna help you in the case of an emergency situation. I hope this is been informational to you until next time. Safe travels and blessings to you.
