There are speed sensors for the abs in the front wheel bearing assemblies. Rust builds up and changes the air gap between the speed sensor and the reluctor ring inside of the hub. The rust needs to be cleaned away to restore the proper air gap it fix the problem.

Brake and abs light


Check to see if your emergency brake is partially on. Also the abs light goes on when the sensors on the hubs get corroded from salt. They either need to be cleaned or replaced. Mine are on from corrosion from road salt so rather than pay the hefty fee to fix the issue until I can do it myself I just pulled the fuse for ABS in my panel to shut that system off. Perfectly safe to drive without them and not an inspection requirement. Now your abs is probably going on every time you apply the brakes and that is not a good thing!

THE SPEEDOMETER STOPS WORKING WHEN IT GETS HOT ON MY 2004 TRAIL BLAZER THANKS.


If everything else works ok, the vehicle drives normally, and all the other gauges are working then you may have a bad speedometer servo motor. This servo is what actually moves the speedometer needle to match the speed you are driving at. The cluster would need to come out and be repaired to fix this problem if this is the case.

the yellow light is warning you that a problem exsists with the abs. unless you are experienced with brakes and abs would highly suggest you take it to a shop.

My truck starts normal. the speedotemeter does


well it seems like there is a wire under your steer column that is rubbed through and being touched when you hit the brakes, or with the slowing down of gravity a wire is bare wire is moving forward and hitting ground.
