2007 GMC Canyon ABS Fault - Originally ABS Fault started when making a sharp right turn. (ABS Fault light only). Stopping and restarting would clear 'fault' until next hard right. Later, occasional metal...


id check your caliper to see if the piston is compressing all the way if not check your fluid it should be clean not brown or if you have been through large amounts of water if it has gotten into the brake system and check your bleeder valve to check if it has rotted or come lose or if you have a break in the lines or air, most likely your caliper is failing to compress.

Abs light is on


sounds like a wheel sensor is going bad. you will need to have an abs computer hooked up to it to determine which one is bad

Abs light comes on says fault traction


One or more of your sensors is going bad at the wheel. Usually in the hub. You can go from wheel to wheel and unplug the lead wire and figure out which one it is.

NO,the abs light being on is telling u that there is a problem with the abs electrical circuit. in no way will it keep your engine from turning over.

Abs fault light comes on even when not using brakes


If you start the vehicle and the ABS light never goes out it is failing its self check test. Typically a bad wheel speed sensor will cause this.

If the light comes on when you start it, goes out shortly after, but comes on after driving for a little bit than the problem may be a little bigger. Wheel speed sensors could still be the problem but you could also have issues with wheel bearings, exciter rings, solenoids, or modules.

The best thing to do is have the ABS module scanned for codes. This will narrow down the possibilities significantly. Post the codes here and we'll be more than happy to guide you to the next step.

Abs light on in my 2005 town and country


The ABS light comes on when the ABS module detects a fault in the ABS system. There are dozens of component failures and open/shorts in wiring that will set the ABS light, ranging from a faulty wheel speed sensor, open/short in wheel speed sensor wiring harness, faulty hydraulic unit, fault electronic brake control module(EBCM), faulty tone ring,etc. There isnt a relay or reset procedure to turn the light off- it can only be turned off by repairing the fault responsible for turning it on, and then using the factory scan tool to erase the fault code and reset the light.

While it is possible the majority of the faults to be repaired at home, the fault codes can only br retreived with a diagnostic scanner with ABS capability. This has to be done first in order to know where the problem is to either repair or do further diagnostics to determine if it is a faulty part or a wiring harness issue. If the problem is in the hyrdaulic unit, this would need to be replaced by a shop as it will require bleeding afterwards with a diagnostic scanner.

I would advise spending the $50-70 to have the on-board computer read for stored ABS fault codes. Considering that most sensors cost that much themselves, you can quickly sink much more than a diagnostic fee into replacing parts based on "what usually goes out" guesses

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).
