Abs Light

you cant just "reset" the light. If the light is on...there is something not right with the abs system and the light will not go off till that problem is fixed. You need a scanner to figure out what is going on.

There are a few things you can check yourself though...if your cruise is inop...and or your speedo doesnt work...there is a good chance its your rear diff speed sensor. If those are not the case....then the most common other cause is one of the front speed sensors if you have four wheel ABS....inspect the wiring that runs to the speed sensors on the front tires close to see if there is any damage....without a scanner though...thats about all you can do....
