WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN MY ABS LIGHT BLINKS ON AND OFF AND THE BRAKE LIGHT IS ON CONSTANTLY

2006 Scion xA • 100,000 miles

Car battery was jumped with the ignition on and it jolted the system. Now the ABS light blinks and the brake light stays on when the car is in neutral, but the ABS light and the brake light are on constant when the car is in DRIVE. Codes ran show: CO236 SF/L and CO246 SR/R. Can you tell me how to fix this problem?

It sounds like you damaged either each solenoid circuit or the skid control with actuator. Special electrical testing is required to determine each.


C0236 is the SFL Solenoid Circuit
C0246 is the SRR Solenoid Circuit
The attached images are of the troubleshooting steps for these circuits and trouble codes.

Try resetting the system first by clearing the codes.
