Chevrolet Spark Owners Manual: Antilock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light

This light comes on briefly when
the engine is started.

If the light stays on, turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF or if the light comes on, stop as soon as possible and turn the ignition off. Then start the engine again to reset the system.

If the light still stays on, or comes on again while driving, the vehicle needs service. See your dealer.

If the regular brake system warning light is not on, the brakes will still work, but the antilock brakes will not work. If the regular brake system warning light is also on, the antilock brakes will not work and there is a problem with the regular brakes.

See Brake System Warning Light on page 5-15.

The ABS warning light will come on briefly when the ignition is turned to ON/RUN. This is normal. If the light does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn if there is a problem.
