Q: ABS Light on 1997 Dodge Ram Van 2500

The abs light is always on. Before I restart the engine and go away, but now for the past three days stay on. What could be the problem?

Your ABS computer has many trouble codes. You need to have it scanned to find out what sensor etc is defective.
im thinking mine has to do with my starter... know what it could be? my question has been posted.
This so called mechanic is one i wouldn`t take my car to. It sounds like he doesn`t have a clue and is only going to end up costing you alot of money doing unecisary costly repairs
My 96 2500 Conversion Van started showing the 'ABS light quite some time ago - two trips to a dealer got the sensor in the rear end changed twice - it's NOT throwing a code, although it should in my opinion. After they gave up I started looking and found a corroded connector under the passenger side, a few feet from the rear end.

I cleaned those connectors up and now no more 'ABS' light.

Didn't find what you were looking for?
