SOURCE: 1999 Alero anti lock brake light

u can have the light scanned by autozone free of charge. Also in new york state the anti lock system is not part of inspection and can not be a failable issue. Ofcourse your state may be differant. Also the abs light will not turn on for brake pads.. Most common on the olds alero is a bad wheel bearing. The abs sensor is built into all the wheel bearings. The code that u can get out of the car will even tell you what wheel it is that is causing he light to come on. Unless ofcourse its not a wheel bearing and its a internal abs system issue. Let me know what the code is and I will try to get you a pinpoint place to look....

SOURCE: trac off and antilock lights are on

If ur lights are both comming on u have a bad connection at the wheel my alero had a bad wheel bearing that actually caused so much heat and friction it burnt the connector at the hub assembly behind ur caliper. check the connection there uif it grinds while u drive or break change the wheel bearing all lights and grinding will stop.

SOURCE: passenger side brake is wearing super fast caliper

As strange as it may sound the problem is on the driver's side. That caliper is seized. If you check the pads will be almost new on that side compared to the passenger side. That caliper must be replaced and new pads installed on both sides. However, I've never had much luck changing one caliper, usually within a month or so I have to go back and do the other one. You may want to consider that option, calipers aren't that expensive. Hope this helps.

I need to find antilock brake fuse 2000 chevy impala

Fuses do not fix anything,do you know that

If a fuse has blown you need to check that
circuit for the reason the fuse went

Check all the fuses,at least the ones you can see under the hood,in the front distribution box

If your asking because you have a dash light on ,forget it

You need a repair shop with a scanner used in Enhanced
Mode just to get ABS Codes & fix the problem

What is a diagnostic trouble codes C1041 & C1045?

Both of these codes refer to ABS problems....(Antilock Braking System)........and they are more specifically related to C1041 Right-Front Inlet Solenoid Valve Circuit Failure and C1045 Left-Front Inlet Solenoid Valve Circuit Failure....

This all seems confusing at first but is there anything different or of point to not ewith the braking of the the ABS light on the dash....has it had any brake repair service performed recently.......just to see where the fault might this code could mean that the ABS control unit/module has failed or that something, hopefully less disastrous has occurred.......

Check all the brakes and there are lots of wear left in them, it seems that once in a while when applying the brakes it feels as if the antilock system is engaged, this is getting more and more common, as...

The wear on the pads has nothing to do with the A.B.S.system.If they are worn it will not make the A.B.S system come on.You probably have a bad sensor or wiring problem.You can check for codes but it will not always leave a code if the light is not coming on.The bast way to check this is with a scan tool while driving.This will help in finding out which sensor is causing the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1988 bmw 325is has brake lining and antilock brake light on also my inspection light is yellow i was told these were new brakes done himself

Generally the brake lining and ABS lights operate independently. Brake linings light will illuminate when there is a circuit to earth through the sensor leads. This is either worn out brakes or a faulty sensor but you'll need to get the wheels off to see.
The ABS light will require a fault code read to work out what the fault is.
Yellow inspection light means it needs a service. This needs to be reset at the time of service using a reset tool on your model.
Good luck

The abs and trac lights stay on when the engine is running. how do I fix the problem ?

Something as simple as a different tire size can cause the abs to go nuts. I even had it where the two tires were the same size. But a different brand name. Each manufacture has their own tire sizing so not all tires a equal in size. Even though it says on the side of the tire that they are the same size.

Sometimes the cooper inside the insulation of the wires going to the sensors corrodes. Especially on the front units. It reads more ohms than normal but not open and is very intermittent. However moving the wires my make it work for a while. That's why replacing bearings seems to fix the problem but it comes back after a while.

You can test the speed sensors yourself...
Front sensor specs:
956 to 1240 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
at least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand
Rear sensor specs:
950 to 1300 ohms in 41 to 110 degree weather
At least 100mV AC (NOT DC!) volts when hub is spun by hand

Here is some information from service bulletins that could be related to the problem. The traction control, antilock brakes, and tire inflation monitor all use wheel speed sensor input.

This first bulletin seems like it could be the problem because engine movement is involved:

GM Corporate Bulletin 00-06-04-049B
This Bulletin covers a problem that can cause multiple failures, one of which is an Antilock brake problem, and covers 2000-2003 Impala and Monte Carlo built prior to 2/03.
Check to make sure the wiring harness adjacent to the AC accumulator/dryer is not rubbing against the ac accumulator chaffing through the insulation of the wires in the harness.

GM Corporate Bulletin 03-05-25-008 overview:
GM front wheel speed sensor harness replacement - 2001-2003 Buick Century, Regal; 2001-2003 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo; 2001-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue; 2001-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
This bulletin is about inspecting the harness going to the front wheel speed sensor for wear from contact with front suspension parts.
Repair harnesses/leads are available that can be spiced onto the main harness.

Park brake light flashes 10 times. For 1989 Chevy 1500 pickup. What does this mean?

This truck probably has Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brakes. There is a small black module near master cylinder that is the brain for this system. There are ways to check for diagnostic trouble codes in this system. Once you have any codes set, diagnosis can be fairly simple. PROCEDURE:
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) 's can be displayed by jumping terminals "A" and "H" of the Data Link Connector and observing the flashing of the "BRAKE" warning light. This should only be done when the brake lamp is "ON".
The terminals must be jumped for about 20 seconds before the code will begin to flash. Count the number of short flashes starting from the long flash. Include the long flash as a count. Sometimes the first count sequence will be short. However, subsequent flashes will be accurate. If there is more than one failure, only the first recognized code will be retained and flashed.

DTC's 6, 9 and 10 will only turn the "BRAKE" lamp on while the fault exists. These are soft codes faults and can only be read with the Tech 1 scan tool.
Do not jump terminals "A" to "H" if the "BRAKE" lamp is not on. Jumping the terminals with the "BRAKE" lamp off will set a false DTC 9. This will turn the "BRAKE" lamp on and disable the antilock system.

    My 94 Mark VIII Seems to idle high all the time..My rpm gauge isn't working so i can't tell where its sitting...It just seems to be running high all the time though...If im stopped at a light and let off...

    That is dangerous. Plus you will fry your brakes. Usually the computer will set a defect code. I suspect you may have a vacuum line off or a leak in the intake manifold. A TPS throttle position sensor could be bad. With the leak part the idea is the engine is getting outside air as if you had pushed down on the gas pedal and opened the throttle. But you didn't. Its costing you a lot in extra gas and wearing your brakes out real quick. The TPS is electric and should have made an error code light up.
