My ABS brake light will not go off and then it blinks.

Hey All,
My ABS brake light will not go off and then it blinks while riding. My brakes seem to work fine. Any thoughts before I head to the shop with my 500?

Thanks,
Tree

All the manual says on that is that there's a serious fault in the system and ABS is NOT working..doesnt really specify. But it also says that your braking power isn't impacted and you'll continue to be able to brake as normal, so you won't notice a difference.

Take it to the dealer ASAP because on the off chance you're relying on ABS alone (I know I've been a bit laxed with my braking habits lately knowing there's a cushion)....it's going to catch you off guard in an emergency situation. Could be a damaged sensor or a faulty line, no telling unless inspected.

the blinks will indicate a fault...there are two blinks...long blink is 1.3 sec...short blink is .3 sec

watch the blink pattern noting how many long and short blinks are produced before it repeats itself

the type of fault in the ABS system can then be determined
