How To Turn Off ABS Light On Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is a stylish and reliable vehicle that has gained popularity around the world. ABS issues are not a rare problem in the Chrysler 300. Are you worried because of the ABS light? Nothing to worry about, turning off the ABS light on the Chrysler 300 is a relatively easy process that I have done myself.

To turn off the ABS light on your Chrysler 300, you need to find the malfunctioning ABS sensor and replace it. Jack up the car, remove the wheel, locate the sensor, test its resistance with a multimeter, and replace it. Finally, test the ABS to ensure the light is off.

Join me on a journey as I explain you step-by-step on how I turned off the ABS light on my Chrysler 300 using the method that worked for me.

So, if you’re looking for a simple and effective solution to this issue, read on!

Reasons and Solutions for Common ABS Issues

ABS Light Coming on Reasons                                                        Solutions
Failed speed sensor Inspect the speed sensor for corrosion, dents, or cuts in the wiring. Check the electrical connection point for moisture. Let it dry for a few hours if moisture is present. The most common ABS problem is with the sensors.
Damaged magnetic ringReplace the wheel hub assembly or the magnetic ring.
Faulty ABS moduleHave the ABS module checked and replaced if it necessary.
Low brake fluidCheck the level of the brake fluid and fill it up if necessary. Also, inspect the brake system for leaks.

Why ABS light come on Chrysler 300?

If there is a problem with the ABS in your car, a warning light on the dashboard will come on to let the driver know. Usually, problems with the ABS module or system don’t happen very often. More commonly, issues arise with one or more of the sensors or the connections between the sensors. This can happen if metal pieces or other particles get into the sensors.

If the wire that connects the sensor gets damaged, it can also cause problems with the ABS. This causes the ABS sensor to work incorrectly or not at all.

Fixing ABS sensor

Tools needed:

  • Multimeter
  • New wheel speed sensor (you can get this at your local auto parts store)
  • An adjustable wrench
  • A wood screw
  • Needle-nose pliers

Step 1: Find the Malfunctioning ABS Sensor

First, I went under the vehicle and accessed the sensor that way.

Then I removed the clip that connected the sensors to the wiring of the vehicle. Next, I checked the sensors one by one by using a multimeter.

I checked both resistance and AC voltage.

Checking Resistance


I tested the resistance by touching the multimeter’s leads to the two wires. The multimeter displayed the sensor’s resistance value. If the sensor is good, its resistance value should be between 800 and 2000 ohms and it should be nearly constant.

There was no problem; all sensors had resistance at that level.

Checking the AC voltage

After that, I tested the AC voltage. I set my multimeter to the AC voltage setting and put the leads on the two pins of the ABS sensor. I spun the wheel and looked for the AC voltage. The AC voltage should be increased and decreased on the three wheels.

I found that the front left wheel’s sensor is broken as there was no change in AC voltage in that sensor.

Note: If you think the above process is hard, you can use an ABS sensor reader to easily identify the error code. Then you can exactly find which sensor you need to look at.

Step 2: Disconnect the Sensor

First, I disconnected the harness connector that ran from the ABS sensor to the engine bay. Then, I followed the wire at the rear of the hub to find the connection point and removed it. In this case, it was a 10-millimeter bolt.

Step 3: Remove the Malfunctioning ABS Sensor

Next, I gently pried up the old ABS sensor. I pressed down with my thumb to grab the sensor gently.

Then, I used needle nose pliers to squeeze in the plastic tabs to release the harness connector. After I was able to pull out the ABS sensor.

Step 4: Install New ABS Sensor

After, installing the new wheel speed sensor by sliding it back into the hole where the old sensor was. I tightened the bolt holding the sensor in place using a 10mm wrench.

Step 5: Reconnect Wire Harness

Next, I connected the wire harness to the sensor by clipping it back into the little holder. Then I made sure everything was nice and tight, including bolts, and the job was done.

Resetting the ABS Light

The final step was to reset the ABS light. It was very easy.

First, I disconnected the positive (+) side of the car battery.

Then, I pressed the brake pedal for a little bit to get rid of any leftover electricity in the car. This reset the central computer.

After that, I reconnected the battery cable. Finally, I drove my car for about 30 seconds so that the computer could adjust to the new settings.

And that’s it! The ABS light went off.


Do racing cars have ABS?

Yes, but ABS systems are often disabled in racing vehicles to allow for maximum braking performance. Understanding how this affects the performance and safety of the vehicle can be important for race car drivers and mechanics.

Can the driver customize the ABS settings?

Yes, some advanced ABS systems may allow drivers to customize the system’s settings for different driving conditions, such as on icy roads or during off-road driving.

Do all vehicles have the same ABS?

No, while most vehicles have standard ABS systems, some high-end vehicles may have advanced ABS systems that offer additional features such as electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control, and stability control.

Do heavy-duty vehicles have ABS?

Yes, ABS systems are not just used in cars but also in heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks and buses. Understanding the unique challenges and considerations when it comes to ABS in these vehicles can be important for maintaining safety.


This is how successfully reset ABS light on my Chrysler 300. In conclusion, if you’re experiencing problems with your ABS and the ABS light is on, replacing the wheel speed sensor may be the solution. With the right tools and a little bit of patience, you can turn off the ABS light on your Chrysler 300 and get back on the road safely.
