I was in a parking lot today and backed up and drove about 4 parking spaces before realizing my E-Brake was on. As soon as I turned it off my ABS light came on...I made another stop later and when I started bug the light turned off and stayed off for the rest of the day, however the next morning I started it and as soon as I applied the brakes the light came back on and won't turn off. Have I messed up a sensor or something or if I had it reset would it turn off? I don't like having lights on my dash so this is really bugging me, and i'm thinking that my ABS isn't working if the light is on? I just don't understand why driving with my E-Brake on for such a short distance would mess up my ABS...:confused:

Driving such a short distance with the parking brakes on shouldn't hurt anything. Remove the rear wheels and check the ABS speed sensor rings. Having the brakes on probably dislodged something that got stuck in one of the rings, or maybe between the ring and the sensor.
