This is a sensor usually located on the left rear tire on the inside of the brake assembly. It's the black plastic disk inside the brake rotor, between the dust shield and the rotor. there is a wire and a magneto sensor on it. If you don't know how to tear down the brakes completely, you should take this problem to a shop. It is rather complicated for this type of web page.

SOURCE: the read out on dash says service electric brake

Do your brake lights work? Your cruise is tied in with your brake lights. If your brake lights are stuck on or there could be a bad switch or bad wire on the switch then your cruise wont work.

My 2003 chevy silverado has abs light on , parking brake on , service 4wd message , and cruise control won't work . What schould I look for ?


I would probably have the computer scanned for ABS trouble codes.
It could be a switch or something else such as an actual problem with the abs system.

Horn doesn't work,abs light on dash stays on and also cruise control does not work either


Typical reason for no cruise and horn is a bad clock spring underneath the airbag. Typically you have an airbag light on as well and not an abs light

Where is the ABS sensor located on my 2004 Ford Explorer XLT? My ABS light will periodically come on then goes off when you shut off the engine. I also have lost my cruise control function.


There should be at least 5 abs sensors:
One for low brake fluid------- check master cylinder for low fluid, if it is low( use dot 3 brake fluid ) to fill it.
The other 4 on the back side of each wheel called wheel speed sensors ( which are tied in with abs system).
To really pinpoint the problem, an abs code scanner should be hooked up to it, that would tell what is causing the light to come on.
I think advanced auto parts store or auto zone check it for free (if there is one near you) otherwise some places charge $80.00 to $100.00 for 30 seconds just to retrieve the code.
As far as the cruise control, it could be a vacuum problem or accuator problem, etc. Without testing it's hard to say.

2006 trailblazer ac only blows on #5 speed. Replaced blower resistor & control panel. Also on any lower speed ip lites up i.e. abs, traction control,e-brake &seat belt?


****, you can check some more but from what I am reading your problem could be related to a faulty ignition switch. I am sending you a copy of some fixes.. you can compare to your condition..
Best of Luck to you..

2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS 4.2L, Vin S, Eng Cfg L6
Customer Concern: No blower motor function. AntiLock Brake System (ABS), Red Brake Warning Light (RBWL), Traction lights all on. Radio does not work. Tests/Procedures: 1. Check for battery voltage at fuses #31 and 39 in Rear Fuse Box under the rear seat.

2. If the voltage value is less than battery voltage, check the Orange wire at the 48 cavity connector located at the base of the steering column at pin D1.

3. If the voltage is low at C201 check the voltage at pin "G" of the ignition switch.


Potential Causes: Ignition Switch


2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer LS 4.2L, Vin S, Eng Cfg L6
Customer Concern: ABS, Low track light comes on intermittently. The heater blower motor quits running, 4WD not working. No communication with the ABS. If you disconnect the ABS computer and plug it back in, it may work. Tests/Procedures: 1. Test voltage at HVAC 30A, 4WD 15A, HVAC 1 10A, BRAKE 10A, TBC RUN 3A labeled fuses in the rear fuse block during the problem.

2. Inspect connector 101 38 cavity connector mounted along the underhood bussed electrical center. This harness may be routed tightly around the underhood fuse block, causing chafing or connector terminal contact that could induce any of the concerns listed.

3. Clean and secure ground G110 located on the lower left side of the engine block. Potential Causes: Damaged Circuit 300
Damaged Connector C101
Improperly Installed Engine Compartment Harness
Malfunctioning Ignition Switch

Where is the rear anti-lock brake sensor on a 2003 gmc sonoma zr2


On both the 2wd and 4wd sonoma models the abs sensor is on the front not the rear. The way an abs system functions the wheel speed sensor sends a signal to the abs controller with the wheel speed, if it's faulty it may over activate in a sense or will revert to conventional braking in which your brakes would lock up. Your abs light would be illuminated as well. The new sensor costs about 70 dollars fyi. 10 minutes to install yourself

Problem with my cruise control and ABS light on 03 Explorer


Anti-Lock Control —Vehicles Built After 03/2002 The 3-channel anti-lock brake system consists of the following components:
  • front wheel speed sensors
  • front wheel speed sensor rings
  • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
  • Anti-lock brake control module (ECU)
  • rear wheel speed sensor
  • rear wheel speed sensor rings
  • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
The 4-channel anti-lock brake system with traction control and stability assist system consists of the following components:
  • active brake booster with integral solenoid
  • brake booster release switch
  • front wheel speed sensors
  • front wheel speed sensor rings
  • hydraulic control unit (HCU)
  • stability assist module (ECU)
  • stability assist event indicator
  • lateral accelerometer
  • longitudinal accelerometer (4x4)
  • rear wheel speed sensors
  • rear wheel speed sensor rings
  • steering wheel position sensor
  • yaw rate sensor
  • yellow anti-lock brake warning indicator
  • brake pressure transducer
  • traction control switch
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I suspect the abs issue is causing the speed control not to work if it happened at the same time the cruise control stopped working. When the yellow ABS light comes on, it means the ABS is dactivated. You may have a faulty accelerometer which senses acceleration and yaw (side to side lean). I have not seen a bad one but you said it is sensitive to acceleration.
I would unplug it and see what happens. The connector should have a small tab to depress so you can pull the connector out.
Here is where it is:

Accelerometer Removal and Installation
  1. NOTE: The accelerometer is located under the center, rear passenger seat carpet. (I think you have to remove seat for access).
    Cut the carpeting along the perforations.
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
  1. Remove the nuts and remove the accelerometer.

Have dealer hook up tester and pull fault codes if you can't find an easy solution.
Some background info
  • A malfunction in the anti-lock brake system will cause the anti-lock brake control module to shut off or inhibit the system. However, normal power-assisted braking remains.
  • Malfunctions are indicated by the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • The anti-lock brake system is self-monitoring. When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the anti-lock brake control module will carry out a preliminary self-check on the anti-lock electrical system indicated by a three-second illumination of the yellow ABS warning indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • During vehicle operation, including normal and anti-lock braking, the anti-lock brake control module monitors all electrical anti-lock functions and some hydraulic operations.
  • Each time the vehicle is driven, as soon as vehicle speed reaches approximately 20 km/h (12mph), the anti-lock brake control module turns on the pump motor for approximately one-half second. At this time, a mechanical noise may be heard. This is a normal function of the self-check by the anti-lock brake control module.
  • Pedal pulsation coupled with noise while braking on loose gravel, bumps, wet or snowy roads is normal and indicates correct functioning of the anti-lock brake system.
  • Warning Lamp Indicator
    The anti-lock brake system (ABS) uses the yellow ABS warning indicator to alert the driver of a malfunctions in the ABS.
    The yellow ABS warning indicator will come on to warn the driver that the ABS has been turned off due to a symptom that exists in the ABS. Normal power assist braking remains but wheels can lock during a panic stop while the yellow ABS warning indicator is illuminated.

    -----------------------------------------
    Please report back, I am curious if that is what it is. Good luck
