Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The car seems to stop fine, but the brakes will lock. It will not pass smog with the lights on, so I need to figure out what to replace to fix the problem.

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....

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.

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.
