The wheel locking up is the problem! That's turning the light on. Have the front brake system checked!
Is there anything to look for? The brakes are 90% good no leaks wheel turn free off the ground no play in bearing. Its like applying brake only to that wheel and letting off? Is there anything electrical that could cause this? Thank you for your help
Actually the problem may be in the right front brake. Jack up the car, have a helper pump brakes up then let off, quickly try to turn the right wheel to see if it is sticking. Possible caliper or other prblem heating up that brake and then the left has much more coefficiency (braking power) than the right, thus the left wheel lock and ABS light. (Possible)
Yes I have tried this, when going down the road it apply itself? Don't understand, I bought this car a month ago an have had a lot of problems. When I apply the brakes it stop evenly no pulling? Thank you
You mean you are just driving down the road and the left front wheel will lock up and you have not applied the brakes? IF so, get a repair shop to look at it, hard to say or guess what that might be.
