    Ok i had figured out te problem. 2 years ago I installed a "T" connector to install my remote starter for the car so i didnt have to cut 10 - 20 wires. The "T" connector somehow after 2 years became a little loose and the main "T" connector was shorting in and out causing other defaults to the car Because most of the car funtions are wired thru this connector. I took the "T" connector out and all my problems went away......

First thing is to have it scanned and identify the code. Codes are available on the internet. Should tell you what components need replacement

    Don't forget that if the connector is under the hood, you might consider a little dielectric grease to keep the connectors in good shape.

The problem is in the ABS valve body or solenoid relays within it. Look at all your fuses and relays as shown in the manual. Or a valve has jammed in the failsafe of the master cylynder.
It sounds wierd but the fluid is controled electronically. If you dont have ABS.....I'm stumped.
You cound try unplugging the abs so it goes into passive mode., or it has possibly become un plugged ? I had the same problem when it became un plugged. I had zero pressure to the rear brakes---loads to the front.

My 97 LeSaber makes a weird noise everytime I make a sharp turn. Could it be power steering and where do you find the power streering fluid nozzle if it needs it.

Your power steering reservoir should be located on the passenger side of the engine, just remove the cap, there should be a dipstick attached to the cap, you can check the fluid level on there. Hope this helps

Ac and heater both coming on just taking turns.

If this just started to fault after battery replace, I would suspect a vacuum hose or outside air temp sensor got unhooked or damaged under the hood. A scanner could help diagnose issue if nothing obvious is found to have been disturbed under the hood during batery replace.Good luck!

Cruse control

Does your blower fan work on your heater/ac or your rear defrost work it could be the igniton switch were you put the key in. Turn the car on and off several times once you notice the cruise will not work and see if it starts to work if it does than it is the ignition switch this just happen to my 2003 century.
