    I just took delivery on my 2004 Chevy Colorado on Monday (12/1/08) and yesterday morning (12/3) the ABS warning light came on and stayed on my whole trip to work.  When I went to leave at in the afternoon, the light went off just after I started pulling out of the lot.  The light stayed off the whole ride home and was off when I went to work this AM but on my way home the light came on again.  I'm taking it to the shop Monday but obviously I'm a little annoyed having to bring it back in to the dealer a week after I picked it up.  I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come!

    I went to the store yesterday morning, about 5 miles. Everything was ok. While going to work yesterday evening, the ABS Fault light came on and stayed on. I looked at my repair manual and it says to check fuses (ok), the connector at the EBCM (ok), The brake line, calipers, & wheel cylinders (those should be ok, I have only 35,000 mi on my 05 Canyon). What else can I do beside taking it to the dealer?

Brake light and atl light stays on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

How to get the abs light off


The ABS light only comes on and stays on when a problem like a failed part exists in the ABS system, the ABS control module senses this problem and it disables the ABS brakes and turns on the dash warning light, so right now you have regular brakes, no ABS. So what needs to be done? You must have the ABS control module scanned by the dealer to see what ABS fault codes are in its memory, then a trained technician will perform the necessary diagnostics and repair the system.

Air bag and abs lights staying on


If the Airbag light is on, it indicates that a electronic fault is stored in the memory for the airbag. You will need to have a diagnostic check done to pinpoint what the fault is, have it sorted out and only then can the fault be cleared so the light will go off. The ABS light also indicates a fault on the electronic side of the braking system. If the light comes on as you start the vehicle this indicates that there is an open circuit in the wiring or that the ABS control unit itself is faulty. If the light only comes on once the vehicle is in motion, this indicates that a wheel speed sender is incorrectly fitted or dirty and not sensing the ABS Rotor on one of the wheels. If a CV joint has been replaced, the joint may not have an ABS ring fitted on it.[front] At the rear the ABS pick up is fitted on the inside of the brake discs and must be fitted to the new disc when replacing discs.

Brake light on vehicle lit up on dash


check the parking brake sometimes a slight bump can make that light come on... pull it up then disengage it roll the car back and forth and see if it goes out.. 2nd make a heavy salt and water solution and completely drench the brake calipers with it move vehicle back and forth working brake...then spray off immeaditaly with a hose... this should clean up the abs sensors... if ithe light still stays on it may be a malfuction in the cars obds ( on board diagnosis systems..) unpluge positive termianl from your car let it set off for like 3 mins then put it back and start car see if the light stay on after you take it for a drive... if none if these work take to your dealer ship to replace the abs sensors... it wont be cheap....

Good luck.. Hope it fix's'ya!!
