2001 Sentra SE ABS Light Coming On
First off let me say thank you to anyone who responds, I really appreciate all the help you guys have given me over the years.
I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra SE which started throwing the ABS light this morning on my drive to work.
I was driving on the highway in some stop and go traffic and noticed the light (it could have been on for a bit at that point in time and I didn't notice though). I continued to drive not noticing any difference in braking ability (not braking enough to actually lock up the wheels though), but was concerned so after a while I shut the car off and let it coast for a bit. I turned the key to the on position and let the car do it's sensor check for about a minute or so, waiting until things looked normal and then turning on the car. For the rest of the trip to work (about 20 minutes), things were fine and I didn't see the light again.
I finished work and started up the car for the drive home and about half way home (I only live 10 minutes away), I noticed the light on again so I repeated the steps from earlier (shutting off the car and letting it coast, turning it on and letting the sensors do it's check and then starting it up again), and the light didn't come back on (I was about 2 minutes away from home at this point in time).
I don't have an ODBII scanner to check so I can't see what, if any, codes the car is throwing at this point in time but I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what could be wrong? Could it just be something wrong with the sensor? Something actually wrong with the brakes or braking system on the car?
I did have an issue in mid-February with the brakes on the car and took it back to the garage that did the work and was told that the sliders were the problem so they took them off, cleaned everything up, re-applied and I can see they put some goop in there as well. Could this potentially be causing whatever the problem is?
Again, thank you all in advance for your help, I really appreciate it!
