AbS light on and not working
the leak is a minor one caused by failure of an O ring on bottom of ABS unit. the fluid leaks from high pressure side of system back to low pressure side, so there is no loss of fluid from the system, but the booster pump will run continually until O ring replaced.

It started a couple of years ago and no mechanic could figure it out. Yesterday a different mechanic found the hydraulic leak problem. Now I know why the light is on. Currently 268,891 miles.
