Hi Guys,

I have a 52 plated Kia Rio 1.3 LE with only 26,000 miles on the clock. However, the ABS and parking brake light are constantly on, even when the parking brake isn't on.

I took it into my local Kia garage and they charged me £50 to put it on the diagnostic machine, only for them to find no faults and reset the computer. The lights didn't appear for a few days, however they've come back on today and are again on constantly. Does anybody have any ideas what it could be? :( Thanks!

If those light's are lit esp the ABS light there should have been a code set. so why did the dealer reset the computer and the light's went out and now are back on? on my 02 rio USA model non ABS the brake light comes on if the parking brake is on or you are low on brake fluid in the master cylinder I'm not sure on the 05 if it is the same.They should have found a code for the ABS light.you may have a wheel sensor that is acting up. Good luck with it. Reguard's Ronjohn

Hi Ronjohn,

They said they looked for codes and couldn't find any. I'm going to have to take it back to the garage anyway now since the lights are back on, so I'll have to ask them. I just don't know why they'd be on if there's apparently no faults.

Thanks for the reply!
