How to Reset the ABS Light on a 1995 Buick Riviera


The ABS light on your 1995 Buick Riviera comes on when there is a problem with the ABS system. The ABS, or anti-lock brakes, on your Riviera help to prevent wheel lockup during hard braking. While this system rarely suffers a complete failure, it can malfunction. When it does, normally you must have it serviced by a professional mechanic. Once the problem is fixed, you can reset the ABS light. However, if you have not fixed the problem, the ABS will simply come on again.

This process does not require tools.

Reset ABS Light

Open the fuse panel cover by pulling down on it with your fingers.

Locate the fuse for the Riviera’s ABS, using the fuse diagram on the underside of the fuse panel.

Pull the fuse for the ABS, using the fuse pullers in the fuse panel.

Wait five minutes and reinsert the fuse for the ABS. Then turn your ignition key to the “II” position and verify that the ABS light has gone out.
