Re: dash lights on abs and brake
This is a abs pump problem. common on these circuits get "unsoldered" from vibration. if you feel like you can solder conections its a good couple hour job and sometimes things get burned out from voltage spikes. good luck jimmy rate as fixya thanx

My ABS and Brake light goes on alot. Also sometimes my gages will go up and down for no reason. That is what they call the GM shuffel. It happens to alot of GM vehicles.
I never had a problem with loosing power or the tranny stuck in second gear. Sounds electrical, if no one can help here, get that thing to a garage before your hurt.
This is a common issue, and is pretty easy to fix. There are ABS sensors on the wheels, and you have a bad one. Usually the wires become corroded, and are easy to spot. The unit is on the back side of the wheel assembly.
yes its better to go shop and check what is the code so that u can easy to diagnose and repair..some problem of the abs light come in out is some abs defective or loose ,,or the abs motor ssy have problem or sensors in the wheel.
I hate to say it, but the abs control module might have died on you. Thats the boxy looking thing under the hood that has a lot of brake lines and wire connectors going into it. I have seen this happen before and it ended up being one of the speed sensors on the wheels but usually its the module. Take the truck somewhere to get the light scanned, and that will give you a better idea of what it is.
check the parking brake sometimes a slight bump can make that light come on... pull it up then disengage it roll the car back and forth and see if it goes out.. 2nd make a heavy salt and water solution and completely drench the brake calipers with it move vehicle back and forth working brake...then spray off immeaditaly with a hose... this should clean up the abs sensors... if ithe light still stays on it may be a malfuction in the cars obds ( on board diagnosis systems..) unpluge positive termianl from your car let it set off for like 3 mins then put it back and start car see if the light stay on after you take it for a drive... if none if these work take to your dealer ship to replace the abs sensors... it wont be cheap....
