You are watching: Will car pass inspection with abs light on in texas

");

OK. Got the ABS light on the dash a few years ago and took it to the Buick Dealer for a look-see. They said ABS mod. on the ticket, but the Service Rep. told me it was the valve block that was the problem. They said $1300 to get "er done. I said "back it out!". So I have replaced the valve block and the ABS module and the proportioning valves (and the calipers and rotors on the front). Of course the light is still on! Is there a "user-friendly" way to reset the ABS trouble codes that doesn"t involve buying a fancy analyzer or taking it back to the Buick Stealer? Brakes work fine (although like Fords, I don"t think the ABS works until the code is reset). This is a pain in the butt having to dissassemble the dash to pull the bulb so I can get the car inspected.
If you are in Texas you don"t need to worry about the ABS light for your inspection. I searched on the very thing a month or so ago. see this website for TXDPS rules on inspecting brakes. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/vi/inspection/rules_list.asp?itemdrop=Brakes At nearly the bottom of the page you will see this: NOTE: Anti-lock (ABS) lamp or signal which is on or comes on during test will not be cause for rejection.

Illegal to pull the ABS bulb out of the dash? Uh...could you provide a cite for that?What law specifically is being broken? If the ABS bulb is not a required safety device (and in TX I don"t believe that it is...see my cite above) then it is not illegal to pull it out. Is it illegal to pull the bulb out of the ashtray, too??...I might burn myself on the lighter without that safety device. Generally speaking, unless it is specifically prohibited, you can do whatever you want with your own car in the U.S. But, as I cited earlier. In TX you don"t need to worry about failing the inspection because of the ABS light. It will not be a cause for failure. That said, you will probably be safer if your ABS system is working properly.
