ABS Light and Parking brake light on

My ABS Light and parking brake lights are on. They still work and I think its the sensor that is broken. Where is that Sensor located in a 2000 chevy S-10 2.2 L LS

    Not only did the ABS and parking brake lights stay on, but the speedometer stopped working and the truck (6-cyl, auto, 4wd) wouldn't move in 3rd gear or Drive! It WOULD go in 1st and 2nd gear. After driving in 2nd gear for several miles, I arrived at the local Chevrolet dealer's parking lot. Before going in to have them check this problem out, I decided to check the transmission fluid level. It was OK. Then, when I got back into the truck, both warning lights had gone out. So I put it in drive and it ran fine. 3rd gear worked again, too, and so did the speedometer.

    Does this mean I need a new computer, since I experienced problems in addition to the warning lights staying on?

    My ABS and EBrake lites come on when I start the engine while it is warm (over 1/4 on the temp gauge). Everything works okay. Engine can be rough when starting at this time. Then runs okay

Check your fuses, then check the ABS valve located beside the master cylinder and the wiring to it and finally check your speed sensor, which is located on the transmission on a 2 wheel drive and on the transfer case on a 4 wheel drive. but make sure hat your E-brake is released as it will cause these lites to come on.

Abs light stays on


if the abs light is on then you have a code in the system that needs to be checked and repaired. it could be a bad wheel sensor, poor connection, broken wire, dirt clogging the sensor gap.

Does ABS work properly? Get on dirt road and try to lock brakes (do this carefully insuring no police car tailgating,lol) Could be bad wheel speed sensor. Check codes with scan tool capable of reading ABS and trans codes.

The ABS works according to what the speed sensor tells it. The sensor may be bad or it senses a broken tooth on the tone wheel (the sensor reads these teeth on the tone wheel, found in the hub).
You will still have Brakes, but not the ABS. You can switch the sensors from the good side to the bad to see if it is in fact the sensor itself. Good luck!

My 1995 honda preludes emergency brake doenst work, when you pull it up it comes up easy and the break light does come on, also my ABS light is on and wont turn off


The parking brake problem could be rear brakes out of adjustment, a broken parking brake cable, or a parking brake cable in need of adjustment.

The ABS light mosy likely has nothing to do with your parking brake problem and will have to be diagnosed by first gathering the ABS fault codes from the ABS computer.

sounds like your vehicle speed sensor is going out. it's the modern equivilent of a speedometer cable. it tells the computer how fast your going which the computer uses to determine shift points, abs function, and speedometer readings. they usually act up a bit before they go out. it confuses the computer. normally located in the extension housing at the rear of the transmission where the spedometer cable would be on an older vehicle

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.
