The anti-lock brake system is part and parcel of the traction control system. the abs has a $750.00 valve located in the engine bay on the right side (as you face the car from the front) the driver's side just behind the headlight. i had a mechanic who took it upon himself to remove, dismantle and clean and reassemble the unit, all to no avail but also without expense. the cost of the part was prohibitive since Blue Book on this car is just about $700.00. it will run and brake just fine without the abs or the traction control system either.

My abs light on my 2000 buick lesabre will not shut off i have replaced rotors and pads what could the problem be


The warning light indicates that there is a malfuction in the anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Normally the system will then cease to function so you have a conventional braking system with no anti-lock feature to engage if you lock up the wheels on braking.

This ABS fault warning has nothing to do with the condition of the pads and rotors so renewing them, which is essential for good braking performance, will not solve the problem.

You will need to take the vehicle to a mechanic with the correct equipment to diagnose the cause of the ABS warning. It may be as simple as a failed ABS sensor (or sensors) and that is what I would be checking first.

It is quite safe to drive the vehicle with the ABS disengaged because your brakes will operate normally. What you don't have is the ABS kicking in to release the brake pressure temporarily in the event you brake hard and lock up any of the wheels.

Does my 1995 buick lesabre limited have abs brakes? this car is loaded to the gill's,


The easy way to tell is when you turn the key to start the vehicle the vehicle goes through a bulb check.If there is a light that says anti lock on the instrument cluster,you have ABS brakes.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2001 Buick Lesabre ABS light stays on even resetting the system. brakes are good and responding just the light coming on and off.


What this means is that the abs module is seeing a problem in the abs system.This has nothing to do with the regular brakes.What you need to do is get the codes from the abs module and this will help in finding what could be causing the light to come on.When the abs light comes on the regular brakes will work normally but your abs brakes will be disabled.Let me know what codes you find and I can help or explain what the cause could be.Good luck.

ABS light on 80K miles


I would say if you are not having problems with your brakes ( ABS means Anti-lock Brake System) then it is probably a broken wire on the wheel sensor that is right next to the drive shaft.
Have someone plug an OBD II reader in and see if you have any codes, please letme know what you find.
If you are having brake problems take your car in and have a reliable auto center repair.

Abs brakes


does all break grab?? if so, the break master cyclinder need attention. if only one break grab then one of the break cyclinder need attention. the cyclinder is not backing off when the break is released.
do not keep driving the car if you don't fix the break. the car will lock up and going to cost you more.
